Ukraine 0-1 Greece (World Cup Play-Offs) – Goals & Highlights

Greece 1-0

Dimitris Salpigidis scored the only goal as Greece clinched a place at the 2010 World Cup courtesy of a narrow victory over Ukraine at the Donbass Arena in Donetsk.

Salpigidis timed his run to perfection just after the half-hour mark to clip a composed finish beyond Ukraine goalkeeper Andrei Piatov, following Celtic striker Giorgos Samaras’ superb through-ball.

It is the first time Greece, the 2004 European Champions, have qualified for a World Cup since 1994 in the United States.
