Germany romped into the Euro 2012 semifinals with a 4-2 thrashing of minnows Greece.
The result was always expected, particularly after Germany went up, 1-0, on the good courtesy of a Philipp Lahm goal in the 39th minute of the first half.
Greece rallied through Georgios Samaras early in the second, but strikes from Sami Khedira, Miroslav Klose and Marco Reus put the tie beyond any doubt, with Greece's Dimitris Salpingidis merely blotting the copy book with his late penalty.
Germany will now face the winners of quarterfinal No. 4.
