Greece taken on Russia in their final match of Group A's round-robin stages with qualification for a place in the quarter-finals still available for both teams. Greece need to win and hope other results go their way, whilst Russia could mathematically still qualify if they lose but can secure a last eight place with a win or a draw. Kick-off time is at 7.45pm and the match at the National Stadium in Warsaw kicks-off at 7.45pm. Greece have several injury concerns going in today's game. 'Keeper Kostas Chalkias will miss the game with the hamstring injury he picked up against the Czechs, so Michalis Sifakis starts in his place. Centre-back Avraam Papadopoulos has been ruled out for the rest of the tournament, though Sokratis Papastathopoulos returns after serving his one-man suspension. Emergency defender Kostas Katsouranis is expected to move back into the midfield. For Russia head coach Dick Advocaat, he has no such problems and appears to have a fully-fit staring eleven for tonight's game. Though he will have to mull over replacing Aleksander Kerzhakov with former Tottenham Hotspur striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.
