How Greece shocked the world at Euro 2004

It is very rare that a major international tournament provides a real shock in the final. Usually, the best teams do progress to the final and the shocks are reserved for the early rounds. World Soccer ranks the United States beating England 1-0 at the 1950 World Cup as the first truly big shock, but the final between Uruguay and Brazil was expected. South Korea beating Italy 2-1 in the 2002 World Cup Round of 16 was a massive shock, but nobody was surprised to see Germany and Brazil in the final. No, shocks are very rarely maintained throughout the tournament, but in 2004, Greece did just that.
