I agree that we play a very boring football. The penalty was non existing too. But it was a very average Group. Colombia was clearly the better team and Ivory Coast is probably a better team than Greece in general. But in this particular match they didn't show their higher quality. Both teams were average and a 1-1 score would be a fair result. We were lucky with the penalty i agree, but i don't think neither Ivory Cost nor Japan were that much higher quality teams. In general the greek soccer team play a very defensive-safe-boring football that sometimes pays off (2004 Euro), so i understand your feelings.
