Wow, as soon as I finished posting the Dutch squad, Greece came out with their final roster. Tomorrow’s workload is getting lighter by the minute, as now only nine more nations still need to submit their teams.
Greece is the defending champion, and will compete in Group D with Sweden, Spain, and Russia. They’re coached by a German, Otto Rehhagel, who has been in charge since 2001.
Get ready for a lot of “O”‘s and “S”‘s, everyone…
