Nightmare for Postiga

Posted on 13 June 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Helder Postiga's Portugal suffered a nightmare start to the European Championships on Saturday.

The striker was an unused substitute as the hosts lost 2-1 to unfancied Greece in the tournament's opening game in Group A.

Greece stunned the Portuguese fans after six minutes when Georgios Karagounis pounced on a Paulo Ferreira mistake and unleashed a 25-yard strike.

Angelos Basinas converted a penalty just after half-time to make it 2-0 following Cristiano Ronaldo's clumsy foul on Giourkas Seitaridis. Ronaldo got a goal back in injury time but it was too little, too late.

In the other Group A game, Spain beat Russia 1-0.
