Bosnia 0-4 Greece: 10-man Bosnia crumble

ZENICA, Bosnia, Oct 11 (Reuters) - European champions Greece sank 10-man Bosnia with a first-half penalty and three late goals on Wednesday to make it three wins out of three in their Euro 2008 Group C qualifying campaign.

Greece went ahead in the ninth minute when forward Angelos

Haristeas converted what looked like a harshly-awarded penalty

after left-back Dalibor Silic used a hand to protect his face

from a fierce Stylianos Giannakopoulos shot.

Substitute defender Christos Patsatzoglou, forward Georgios

Samaras and midfielder Konstantions Katsouranis scored in the

last 10 minutes to polish the win after Bosnia had defender Sasa

Papac sent off five minutes into the second half.

It was a case of mistaken identity by Russian referee Yuri

Baskakov, as Emir Spahic committed the foul on Giannakopoulos on

the edge of the box while Papac was several metres away.

The win lifts the Greeks alongside Turkey on nine points

after their rivals' 5-0 thrashing of Moldova. Norway have six

points while Bosnia remain fourth on four points. Hungary and

Malta have three and Moldova one.

'We played against a good team but we played as we agreed

and achieved what we came for,' Greece's German coach Otto

Rehhagel told reporters.

Bosnia, missing suspended skipper Sergej Barberez, started

strongly and forward Mladen Bartolovic had a 10-metre header

saved by Greece goalkeeper Antonios Nikopolidis in the fifth

minute.

But once the Greeks grabbed the lead they never looked like

losing.

Patsatzoglou scored with a fierce 80th minute shot from the

edge of the area on a return pass from Samaras, who scored with

a lob three minutes later.

Katsouranis added the fourth with another lob deep in injury

time.

'There is nothing I can tell my players. They showed they

wanted to fight for a good result but our morale suffered a blow

after the penalty and the red card and the result does not

reflect the situation on the pitch,' Bosnia coach Blaz Sliskovic

said.

Sliskovic, who had resigned after last month's 3-1 home loss

by Hungary but then reversed his decision, said the Bosnian

Football Asocciation's executive board would decide his fate.

'It is too early to talk about it now,' he said.
