Greece are in control of their FIFA World Cup play-off tie with Romania after a 3-1 first-leg victory in Piraeus.

Olympiacos FC forward Kostas Mitroglou continued his fine UEFA Champions League form with the 14th-minute opener in his home stadium. Romania promptly responded through Bogdan Stancu – the first goal Greece have conceded since 22 March – though they were level for only two minutes before Dimitris Salpingidis re-established the hosts' lead.
