The Greece national football team is the national football team of Greece and is controlled by the Hellenic Football Federation. They are the reigning European Champions and the current Unofficial Football World Champions.

Greece’s first appearance in a major tournament was Euro 1980, but their first win did not come until the first match of Euro 2004, a 2-1 win over the hosts Portugal. Greece went on to win the tournament, stunning defending champions France in the quarterfinals and the heavily favoured Czech Republic in the semifinals before beating Portugal for a second time, 1-0, in the final. Bookmakers were giving odds of about 80-1 to 150-1 for the Greeks before the tournament. Wikipedia
