According to Lizzy Davies of The Guardian, the Euro 2012 game between Germany and Greece is more than just a sports match between two countries.
It looks set to be the ultimate grudge match. Germany may be threatening Greece with exit from the euro, but the debt-stricken country now has an unexpected opportunity for revenge against its biggest and most critical creditor -- by knocking its football team out of Euro 2012.
After Greece's surprise win against Russia on Saturday night and Germany's 2-1 victory over Denmark in the European championships, the two countries will now face each other in a quarter-final on Friday. Given the tensions, the prospect has filled Greeks with hope that, on the football pitch at least, they will be able to come out on top.
