What is their to say :confused:

Well this group clearly Spain are favourites but their away matches against Ukraine and Greece will be tough. The dispute is for the second place and I think the Greeks will get through into the second place.

KYIV, March 11 (DSA) - European championship qualifying group 6 representatives hold a meeting in Athens today but failed to reach an agreement on the match schedule. Ukraine, Spain and Armenia came to an agreement, however Greece and Northern Ireland did not accept it. The representatives of the five federations will hold a meeting once again, probably in April. If they do not reach a mutual solution then the match schedule will be defined by a draw in UEFA headquarters in Switzerland.

I'm happy to see that some of you, put Greece on the 2nd position.:)
The game with Spain at leoforos(Athens) is sold out!!!
I'll agree that Spain is the favourite NT for the 1st place.
I also think that Ukraine and N.Ireland will fight with us for the 2nd place.
Armenia will try for the surprise!!!

Nikolaidis double puts Greeks back on track
Soccernet.com

ATHENS (Reuters) - Demis Nikolaidis scored twice as Greece relaunched their Euro 2004 qualifying campaign with a 2-0 victory over Armenia on Wednesday.

Nikolaidis gave the Greeks, still looking for their first points, a dream start when he headed in Vassilis Tsartas's floated free kick in the second minute.

Armenia responded with sporadic counter-attacks led by Artur Petrosyan and Greek goalkeeper Antonis Nikopolidis made important interceptions in the 20th and 40th minutes.

Nikolaidis was denied by a point blank save from Armenian goalkeeper Roman Berezovsky just before the break, but the AEK Athens striker was not to be denied when he chipped in his second after 61 minutes.

With the hosts desperate for their first qualifying points German coach Otto Rehhagel reshuffled the midfield bringing in Pantelis Kafes and Angelos Basinas.

The pair struggled to link with playmaker Tsartas who looked isolated between defence and attack for long spells.

Greece showed an unexpected physical edge, led by the towering central defensive partnership of Nikos Dabizas and Traianos Dellas.

Nikolaidis should have doubled the lead after a clever backheel from Tsartas freed him for a close range shot well-saved by Roman Berezovsky in the Armenian goal.

Rehhagel brought on captain Thodoris Zagorakis in place of Kafes for the second half in a bid to add steel to the midfield.

Thanks to determined defending Armenia held out until the hour mark when an interception from Angelos Basinas allowed Nikolaidis in to chip in a simple second goal.

Substitute Stelios Giannakopoulos nearly scored a dramatic third after weaving his way through the tired Armenians but fired his shot straight at the goalkeeper.

Ukraine got a very shady penalty vs Armenia....I felt Armenia deserved at least a point from that game. Would have really helped us also. :D


We (Greece) beat Spain 1-0 IN Spain.... Ukraine beat Armenia 4-3. The standings now look like this:


Group 6 Pld Pts

Spain - 5 - 10
Ukraine - 5 - 9
Greece - 5 - 9
Armenia - 5 - 4
Northern Ireland - 4 - 1


A huge game, and one that will probably decide 2nd place....Greece vs Ukraine, in Athens. Spain will take on N.Ireland.
