fast little loans
Athens – Greek sports dailies on Sunday were itching for a showdown with European powerhouse Germany – unpopular here over a huge EU-IMF economic bailout – after Greece advanced to the Euro 2012 quarter-finals.
“Bring us (German Chancellor Angela) Merkel,” said Goal News after Greece shocked Russia 1-0 on Saturday to advance to the next round of the tournament.
“You will never get Greece out of the Euro, Europe once again delirious about bankrupted Greece,” the paper said.
Germany – and Merkel personally – are identified in Greece with pressure for painful salary and pension cuts imposed in the past two years in return for rescue loans.
“This is how your debtors qualify, Angela get ready,” said Sport Day.
“You IMF our Greece, we TNT your Euro,” added Metro Sport, adding there was “endless bliss and pride across the country”.
Germany need a point against Denmark on Sunday to finish top of their group and qualify for next Friday's quarter-final. – Sapa-AFP
