Germany Vs. Greece, Euro 2012: Salpingidis Scores From Penalty, Makes It 4-2

We've got another goal! Incredibly, it's not Germany who've got it. Greece scamper forward almost apologetically and Giorgios Fotakis crosses to nobody in particular. For reasons unknown, Jerome Boateng opts to block it with his arm, and the referee points to the spot immediately.

Dimitris Salpingidis steps up to the spot and sends Manuel Neuer the wrong way with an emphatic finish to make it 4-2. Is the comeback on? Er... no, because there are two minutes left. But hey, consolation goals are nice. Greece can be happy that they've done better against this Germany side than England managed in the World Cup at least, and Salpingidis has managed to cap off what's been a pretty good tournament for him personally with another goal. Yays all around?
