FORTALEZA, Brazil, June 24 (Reuters) - Substitute Andreas
Samaris gave Greece a 1-0 halftime lead against Ivory Coast on
Tuesday in a Group C match they must win to stand a chance of
advancing to the last 16.
Samaris, who came on when Panagiotis Kone limped off after
12 minutes, calmly lifted the ball over advancing Ivory Coast
goalkeeper Boubacar Barry after 42 minutes.
Jose Holebas had also rattled the crossbar with a shot from
just outside the penalty area in the 31st minute as the
Europeans looked dangerous on the break.
