Greece 4, Nigeria 2
I left the soccer centre on Sunday night in absolute shock. Playing in front of a huge crowd, Greece came out, took care of business at the back and scored some ugly, but well deserved goals against a hapless Nigerian squad. I knew Nigeria was inconsistent, but never in a million years did I think they would lose to Greece. Give the Greeks credit - they play with a ton of heart, they're completely fearless in every single one of their tackles, and they have a keeper who can handle big games. This throws a wrench into what can happen in Group C and I'm looking forward to the rest of the games way more than I initially was. It was only one game, but well done Greece.
