It's an unbelievable feeling. Greece did everything to get to the quarter-finals. We played an amazing game. It's just a shame that [Giorgios] Karagounis received a second yellow card and won't play in the quarter-final.

We've definitely not been lucky at all, especially in the game against the Czech Republic. Generally speaking, during the first two matches here in Poland, good fortune has abandoned us. That's why we are thinking positively about the third game. We are due some luck.
