Soccer-Greece lead Ivory Coast 1-0 at halftime


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.
