WC Brazil: After the epic victory of Greece over Côte d'Ivoire PHOTO


There were celebratory scenes Wednesday in the Greek capital of Athens after the national football team secured a place in the Round of 16 of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. 

Greece, Euro champions in 2004, beat Cote d'Ivoire 2-1 Tuesday in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza to secure a spot in the knock-out round for the first time in history, finishing second behind Colombia in Group C, reports Xinhua.

Yorgos Samaras, who scored the winning goal for Greece, dedicated the victory to his countrymen, who are suffering an acute four-year financial crisis.
"We hope we can make people happy back home," he said.
Hundreds of Greeks, mostly youth, gathered at Omonoia Square in the early hours of Wednesday in central Athens to celebrate.
