Dimitris Salpingidis struck the only goal after 63 minutes to give Greece a vital FIFA World Cup qualifying Group G win in Slovakia.

In very wet conditions, Slovakia had the better of the game but were not able to find the target. And one defensive slip allowed in Salpingidis to score and put Greece level on ten points with Bosnia and Herzegovina at the top of the section, three clear of Slovakia.
