Two strongest teams in group F, Croatia and Greece showed us terrible defensive football.
Runje - Strinic - Simunic - Corluka - Srna - Kranjcar - Vukojevic - Modric - Pranjic - Olic - Petric
Substitutes: 46min Jelavic for Petric
57 min Rakitic for Vukojevic
73 min Eduardo for Olic
Sifakis - Vitra - Papadopoulos - Papastathopoulos - Tzavelas - Torosidis - Tziolis - Karagounis - Katsouranis - Samaras - Salpingidis
Substitutes: 59 min Gekas for Salpingidis
70 min Ninis for Karagounis
90 min Seitaridis for Torosidis
Greece is definitely happy with the draw because Croatians deserve to win this match. Greece mainly tried to score the goal through the counter attacks.
Croatia tried to score through Modric and Kranjcar who had few nice shoots on the goal but Sifakis stooped them all easily. The best chance for Croatia came in the last minute of the match when Eduardo failed to score an amazing opportunity.
Greece played very well tactically and that brought them a golden point from Zagreb.
Atmosphere in Maksimir was amazing! 33,000 people expected great night full of football. But they surely went hope dissapointed. They didn't deserve to watch miserable 0-0 draw.
After every team played two matches in group F, things look very even for now.
1. Croatia 4
2. Israel 4
3. Latvia 3
4. Georgia 2
5. Greece 2
6. Malta 0
Interesting, Israel failed to beat Georgia on their field while Latvia easily beat Malta, 0-2.
