Greece defender Vassilis Torosidis is playing down the prospect of his countryâ€™s revival at the World Cup following the 2-0 loss to South Korea.
Torosidis says the defense-minded Greeks will redouble their efforts against Nigeria on Thursday but are unlikely to undergo a â€œtransformation.â€
Greece defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos said Tuesday he is ready to play after being kept on the bench in the opening match. â€œI do not see us doing anything great against Nigeriaâ€.Â The Greeks play Argentina in their last Group B game.
They are at the foot of the table and may exit the tournament if they lose against the Nigerians, who are also desirous of a victory, to stand a chance of qualifying for the second round.
