Greece (officially the Hellenic Republic) is a country in Southern Europe. Greece has long coastline, including a huge number of islands – approximately 1,400.
The Greek national football team (“Ethniki”) played their first international game in 1929. The team suprisingly won the UEFA EURO 2004, and by far this is their biggest achievement on the international football scene. The country also participated on two FIFA World Cup championships. Prior to EURO 2012, all-time top goalscorer is Nikos Anastopoulos with 29 goals.
