  1. Scenes of jubilation and relief in equal measure among the Czech players and supporters. They keep their Euro 2012 hopes alive while Greece will need to beat Russia in their final game if they are to avoid an early plane home.

  2. Full time: Greece 1 Czech Republic 2

  3. 90+3

    Kostas Katsouranis puts in a desperate high ball in the box but the ref blows for a foul by Papadopoulos.

  4. 90

    Three minutes to be added on.

  5. 90

    Sub for Czech Republic: Frantisek Rajtoral replaces Daniel Kolar.

  6. 89

    Giannis Maniatis chips the ball forward looking for Gekas, but Cech is alert and rushes out to smother the ball.

  7. 83

    Karagounis curls in another dangerous free-kick from the left but the Czechs scramble it clear.

  8. 80

    Ten minutes left at a very nervy Wroclaw, are we to see a dramatic Greek equaliser? Or will the Czechs hold on for a precious victory?

  9. 79

    Great credit has to go to Greece for the way they have fought their way back into this game - again. I'm just not sure though whether they have the quality to break down the Czech defence. If they are to score it may have to come with a slice of luck.

  10. 75

    Maniatis curls in a searching cross towards the far post from the right, but Mitroglou is penalised for climbing on the back of a Czech defender.

  11. 72

    Greece come steaming forward in numbers again, Karagounis' shot deflecting towards Gekas, who is flagged offside.

  12. 71

    Change for Greece: Kostas Fortounis is replaced by Kostas Mitroglou.

  13. 68

    As much of the stadium is filled by Czech Republic fans, things are getting understandably tense. They know their side aren't playing as well as they did in the first half and sitting back is only making things worse.

  14. 67

    Pilar does well to scamper down the left and get to the byline, but his chipped cross is over the head of his team-mates in the penalty area.

  15. 66

    Daniel Kolar is booked for a push in the back on Kostas Fortounis.

  16. 64

    Another sub for Czech Republic: Tomas Pekhart is on for the ineffective Milan Baros.

  17. 63

    Decent lumbering run from Samaras, but as soon as he gets to the byline he tumbles over and the ball goes out for a goal-kick.

  18. 61

    Karagounis curls in a dangerous free-kick from the right but Cech - to his credit - comes out and punches away confidently.

  19. 60

    Greece are doing their best Jekyll and Hyde impression once again, they are looking much better this half - justas they did against Poland. The Czech Republic in contrast are looking nervy.

  20. 58

    Dimitris Salpigidis is the next to go into the book (I'm losing count here!) for a late tackle on David Limbersky. Looks a bit harsh that though as he appeared to get some of the ball.
