Greece coach Fernando Santos wasn't happy with the 1-1 draw with Poland as he said he had demanded victory but nevertheless the Portuguese handler didn't blame the players more the referee.
"I don't think it was justified that Sokratis (Papastathopoulos) was sent off with two yellow cards, but still we succeeded in keeping the pressure on the game," he said.
"I totally accept the decision of the referee but that was a very difficult situation for us."
"We were confident on the pitch. We always thought we could get in the game again. The players were very good in the second half.
"We scored a goal and obviously had a chance at the end of the game to win it but we didn't, so that's football."
