Sunday's goalless draw in Budapest kept Greece bottom of Group F, six points adrift of their third-placed opponents, yet Kostas Stafylidis has not given up hope despite another missed opportunity. "We lost two points [against Hungary] because we dominated and had control of the match – if we'd have scored, we'd have won," the defender said.

Greece have also switched coaches during this campaign, Claudio Ranieri leaving his post in November and Sergio Markarián taking over last month, with Stafylidis seeking a similar improvement in fortunes. "The change of coach has been a key factor for us. We needed to prove we could play better; he motivated us. We changed our playing style a lot and did exactly what he asked of us.

"We knew what we had to do. We knew it was a do-or-die match which we had to win, but it's OK; we didn't lose and it was a huge improvement. There are still five matches left, so of course there are still chances. We're going to try to do our best and since we're not dead there is always hope. We can hunt our dream, even through the play-offs. It wouldn't be the first time."

Andreas Samaris, Greece midfielder:


It was a tough match for us, more so psychologically. There was too much pressure due to our need to get points. We played well tonight, but didn't convert our chances. Unfortunately the pressure continues, the six-point distance with Hungary remains and we have fewer matches ahead to make it up.

There is no room for any more point losses and we are not just relying on ourselves anymore. However our improved performance makes us more optimistic that we can turn this around. We have to build on this performance.
