Torosidis bags vital and momentous winner!

All four teams can still qualify from Group A after Greece beat Nigeria 2-1. Kalu Uche put Nigeria in front but it all went wrong when Sani Kaita was sent off for aiming his studs at Vasilis Torosidis. Dimitrios Salpingidis levelled and Torosidis netted a 71st minute winner when Vincent Enyeama failed to hold a shot.

Man of the Match: Dimitrios Salpingidis
- His goal may have been indebted to a large slice of luck, but Salpingidis deserved the credit it will bring him thanks to a purposeful display. A constant menace down the right flank, he was the most lively player in Otto Rehhagel's ranks.

Greece verdict:
With Argentina to come in their final game, Greece may yet end up disappointed but they will certainly settle for their first ever World Cup win. While they looked as uninspired and unadventurous as usual in the first half hour, Rehhagel showed admirable initiative when quickly bringing on Georgios Samaras after a red card shown to Sani Kaita. Both goals were fortunate, but Greece worked hard for the win.

Stat attack:
Greece finally scored their first ever World Cup goal in their fifth finals match. Their only previous appearance in a World Cup was in 1994 when they lost all three group games, including matches against Nigeria and Argentina.
