Greece v Czech Rep 01/07/2004 19:45
A Silver Goal took Greece through to their first European Championships Final as they beat the Czech Republic 1-0 in Porto.
Despite an early scare after only three minutes when Tomas Rosicky hit the bar from all of 20-yards the Greeks did what they had done so well throughout the tournament and marked the opposition's main threats out of the game.
The Czechs lost Pavel Nedved through injury in the 40th minute and without their inspirational captain they could not find a way past Antonios Nikopolidis. With the score remaining 0-0 after 90 minutes the game went into extra-time.
Traianos Dellas picked the perfect time to score his first international goal. The former Sheffield United man glanced a header past Peter Cech at the near post from a Vassilios Tsiartas corner.
The goal, which came after 15 minutes of extra time giving the Czechs no time to recover, sent the tournament's favourites out.
Having never won a game at a finals tournament before coming to Portugal, Otto Rehhagel's side now face Portugal in the Final on Sunday.
