Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Josh Hershman, National Stadium Warsaw: Greece are into the quarter-finals thanks to a goal from captain Giorgos Karagounis at the end of the first half. Russia rarely threatened and bow out of the competition but the question is now whether Fernando Santos's men can repeat the heroics of 2004?
  • 90+4
    Dzagoev (Russia) misses the target.
    Is that the last chance Russia will have? A long ball is headed out and the midfielder meets it on the volley but it is well over the bar.
  • Yellow Card
    90+4
    Holebas (Greece) is cautioned by the referee.
  • 90+3
    Arshavin (Russia) takes the corner.

  • 90+1
    Sifakis (Greece) makes a save.
  • 90+1
    Denisov (Russia) has an effort on goal.
    Yet another block on a Russian shot. The Greek defence have thrown their bodies at everything. They have just a few minutes to hold out.
  • 90
    Sifakis (Greece) makes a save.
  • 90
    Shirokov (Russia) has an effort on goal.
    A short corner is thusly swung to the back post where the Russian forwards are lining up to meet the header. The midfielder is the one who takes it on but directs his effort into the ground and Michalis Sifakis has a comfortable save.
  • 90
    Dzagoev (Russia) takes the corner.
  • 84
    Dzagoev (Russia) misses the target.
    So close to an equaliser as the midfielder gets ahead of Sokratis Papastathopoulos to meet Andrey Arshavin's right-wing cross and the ball slips agonisingly wide of the far post with Michalis Sifakis beaten.
  • Substitution
    83
    Ninis (in) - Salpingidis (out) (Greece)
  • 82
    Pavlyuchenko (Russia) misses the target.
    Marat Izmailov makes an immediate impact with a direct run on the right and wins a corner. It is played short and eventually swung to the back post, but Pavlyuchenko's first-time swinging effort is sent a long way over the bar.
  • 82
    Dzagoev (Russia) takes the corner.
  • Substitution
    81
    Izmailov (in) - Anyukov (out) (Russia)
    Dick Advocaat makes his last roll of the dice, sending on a forward for a defender. The No9 has two goals in 34 internationals. His countrymen will be hoping he can add one more to that total.

  • 75
    Sifakis (Greece) makes a save.
  • 75
    Denisov (Russia) has an effort on goal.
    Another effort from range. This time the ball weaves through the bodies in the box, but Michalis Sifakis gets down to his left to save solidly. Time is running out for Russia.

  • Yellow Card
    70

  • 51
    Shirokov (Russia) misses the target.
    Aleksandr Anyukov gets forward well again down the right. His deep cross is knocked back by Andrey Arshavin but a first-time effort from ten metres is sent a long way over the bar.
  • 50
    Samaras (Greece) misses the target.
    The Celtic FC forward does excellently as he powers down the centre, but gets carried away and shoots from distance when better options are available, and the low effort is a long way wide.
  • Substitution
    46
    Pavlyuchenko (in) - Kerzhakov (out) (Russia)
    Pavlyuchenko enters proceedings. The forward has scored 21 goals for Russia, only five shy of Vladimir Beschastnykh's post-Soviet record.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    As it stands Russia and Greece are both going through, but a goal in Wroclaw would change that. Russia will be desperate for a goal to keep their destiny in their own hands.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Josh Hershman, National Stadium Warsaw: Other than the opening ten minutes Greece have struggled to impose themselves on the game, but with virtually the last kick of the half Giorgos Karagounis gave them what could prove to be a decisive lead. Russia are still going through, though, with the score goalless in the night's other final Group A game.
  • Goal
    45+2
    Karagounis (Greece) scores!
    A mistake from Sergei Ignashevich, who fails to deal with a throw, lets in the Greek captain with a clean run through on goal and he makes no mistake, drilling below Vyacheslav Malafeev in first-half added time.
  • 45+1
    Arshavin (Russia) delivers the corner.

  • 40
    Zhirkov (Russia) delivers the corner.

  • 36
    Ignashevich (Russia) misses the target.
    The FC Zenit St Petersburg midfielder tries a very ambitious effort from 35 metres. He does not connect with the requisite power and the ball rolls gently wide of the Greek goal.

  • 12

  • 6
    Karagounis (Greece) delivers the corner.

  • 3
    Salpingidis (Greece) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • Start Time
