I said they were underrated. But then I said Portugal are overrated and they got to the final. :lol:
Who were they playing when you took that? Great vantage point you had. :)

It was the first time at the European Championship and World Cup that the two teams who played the opening match of the championship met again in the final.

Greece have won their very first major title. The last time a country claimed their maiden title at a major championship was in 1992 when Denmark lifted the European Championship silverware in Sweden.

Greece became the first nation to win a major championship led by a foreign manager. This had never happened in 11 previous European Championships or 17 World Cups. At 65 years, 10 months and 25 days Otto Rehhagel also became the oldest coach to win a European Championship title, breaking Dutchman Rinus Michels' record from 1988.

Portugal's Luis Figo joined France's Zinedine Zidane, Lilian Thuram and the Czech Republic's Karel Poborský as European Championship record holders for match appearances. The final against Greece marked the 14th match in the history of the competition to feature Figo.

And all accomplished by our own underdog-team coach Otto "the Greek" Rehakles, erm, Rehhagel.

I'm glad he made it.

Now we Germans got to find such a fine coach ourselves.

May the force be with you - in 2006 in Germany!:D
