Japan vs Greece World Cup 2014: Player ratings
Man-for-man marking from the World Cup Group C encounter
Friday 20 June 2014
Greece promised goals that didn't come. Japan pressed for a victory that eluded them yet again.
Reduced to 10 men after captain Costas Katsouranis was sent off in the 38th minute with his second booking, Greece held on for a critical result in the group by returning to the rock-solid defense that Colombia had blistered for three goals in an opening loss.
"My players were brilliant," said Greece coach Fernando Santos. "They worked hard after the red card. Without the red card we probably would have won the game."
So how did each player get on in the goalless draw?
