92'—Another long ball by Greece. Another headed clearance by the Czech defence. It's too easy for the centre backs.
90'—3 MINUTES OF ADDED TIME TO BE PLAYED
Kolar is the man being replaced for Rajtoral. Kolar only came on at halftime.
88'—Greece once again get into the final third and then just loft a ball over the top. Petr Cech says thank you very much and wastes a few more seconds before kicking.
87'—They take a short one and Greece win a foul after a three player scrap in the corner.
87'—Corner ball to Czech Republic. It's been a while since they ventured this far forward.
85'—Czech Republic will deal with these high balls into the box all day long. Greece are looking more and more desperate.
84'—Statistic for Samaras. Seven goals in 55 international appearances. It shows.
83'—Greece are pinning all their hopes on aerial balls into the box. Their invention really is lacking as the clock runs down.
80'—Pilar nearly got in behind the Greek defense until his touch let him down then. Wasteful.
79'—We're entering into the final 10 minutes or so with Czech Republic still looking good value for their lead. Greece just don't look threatening as Petr Cech gathers a lofty cross comfortably.
75'—Samaras floats a weak cross that runs through to Petr Cech. It will probably go down as a shot on target...how embarassing by Samaras.
73'—Greece and the Czech Republic look like different sides in this second half. The Czech Republic seem to have abandoned any attempt at scoring another goal as Greece impose themselves further and further up the pitch,
72'—Karagounis flagged for offside there as he seemingly looked level. Greece could have been in if the linesman was on his game.
Mitroglou is on for Fortounis as Greece go for glory.
70'—Looks like Greece are going to make another substitution shortly.
69'—Greece are knocking on the door as they fire some crosses into the box. Czech Republic are standing up to the pressure well.
67'—LONG RANGE SHOT
The headline makes it sound more exciting than it actually was. A 35+ yard effort is fired into the stands by Maniatis.
Baros is off for Pekhart in a move by the Czech Republic.
Meanwhile the sixth yellow card of the day is given to Kolar.
62'—Samaras has been dead weight for the Greek's so far. In such poor goalscoring form, why is he even in the Greek squad?
60'—Another nervy moment for Petr Cech has he punches a cross rather than attempting to collect. A brief sight of goal for Greece was closed out by the Czech defence there.
59'—Pilar commits one of the worst fouls of the day but receives no punishment there. Inconsistent refereeing has been the main story of Euro 2012 for Greece.
58'—It's all gone a little flat here. Czech Republic have lost all that attacking drive that was easy on the eye in the opening 45 minutes.
56'—It will be a test of nerves for the Czech's as Salpingidis now get's a yellow card for a late slide challenge.
