Alberto Zaccheroni's men played with a numerical advantage for most of the game following Konstantinos Katsouranis' dismissal but could failed to break the deadlock
What a missed opportunity for Japan, they still have a chance to progress albeit small...
Very, very dull match
Really was, you couldn't even tell that Greece was a man down it was such a slow match. This maybe beats the Iran Nigeria match as the most boring of the WC.
It does in my opinion! Iran knew they weren't going to win and their drive to get atleast a draw was admirable and entertaining. This match however, with one less player on the pitch too, just lacked any creativity and drive
Its a shame too because I was expecting Japan to make some noise this WC. They have a lot of talented players but they just have been playing so conservatively....
