Diary

Wednesday, 16 May 2001 - Greece coach Vasilis Daniil has announced a 24-player squad for the two World Cup 2002 home preliminary matches against Albania on 2 June and England on 6 June.  Newcastle United defender Nikos Dabizas returns to the squad after a long-term injury.  Ajax striker Nikos Machlas and Paniliakos defender Marinos Ouzounidis also have returned.  Perugia forward Zisis Vrizas has been recalled after a highly successful season in Serie A.  The squad is without Olympiakos defender Grigoris Georgatos, who withdrew himself from selection  because he felt he was not psychologically fit to play as a result of his anguish over his club side's loss in the Greek cup final, and the country's finest striker, Demis Nikolaidis of Athlitiki Enosis Konstantinoupoleos Athens, who has boycotted the national side for the past 18 months in protest against alleged corruption in Greek football.

Saturday, 26 May 2001 - Greece's top goalkeeper Dimitris Eleftheropoulos will miss the World Cup preliminary matches because of a knee injury which has caused him severe pain, according to a statement issued by his club side, Olympiakos. Vasilis Daniil will use his second-choice goalkeeper, Antonis Nikopolidis of Panathinaikos.

Monday, 28 May 2001 -  Vasilis Daniil announce
s a revised squad following the injury withdrawals of Olympiakos goalkeeper Dimitris Eleftheropoulos and Hertha Berlin midfielder Costas Konstantinidis.  Daniil has given a late call to Athlitiki Enosis Konstantinoupoleos Athens midfielder Andreas Zikos.

Saturday, 2 June 2001 - Greece beat Albania
1-0, with a goal from Nikos Machlas, but midfielders Christos Patsatzoglou and Giorgos Georgiadis earned their second yellow cards of the preliminary competition and will be suspended for the match against England.

Wednesday, 6 June 2001 - Press reports reveal that midfielder Andreas Zikos, who did not play against Albania, walked out of the Greece squad earlier this week after he was told he would not make the bench as a possible substitute in the England match.  Defender Stelios Venetidis aggravated a previous injury in the squad's last training session last night and will not be available for tonight's match.
