Germany Vs. Greece, Euro 2012: Germany Waste Lots And Lots Of Chances

Well it definitely shouldn't be 0-0 at this point. Germany have started generating chances, but they're just not taking them. Mesut Ozil and Marco Reus have combined to miss three glorious opportunities to take the lead. There's some absolutely lovely interplay going on - the combination of Reus and Miroslav Klose to open up the first opportunity for Ozil (he shot straight at Michail Sifakis) was incredible - and German have looked very very sharp in the attacking third until it comes time to shoot.

Greece, meanwhile, are being restricted to counterattacks, and their most promising comes when Dimitrios Salpingidis breaks the offside trap, blows past Holger Badstuber and races free on goal. The only problem was that the pass he was trying to run onto was cut out by Manuel Neuer, who managed to boot it out of play well before the striker could get there. That's been the best thing Greece has done all evening, so there you go.
