Greece National Team has always had a small name in football especially with FIFA due to football accomplishments. Greece did not qualify for any major tournament after UEFA Euro 1980  until the 1994 FIFA World Cup and after an undefeated qualifying campaign, they produced a poor performance in the final tournament, losing all three group matches without scoring.

Greece National football team reached a milestone in UEFA Euro 2004 when they were crowned European champions in only their second participation in the tournament. Dismissed as rank outsiders before the tournament, the team defeated some of the favorites in the competition including defending European champions France and hosts Portugal.  

In the decade after the 2004 victory, Greece qualified for the final tournaments of all but one major competition entered, reaching the quarter-finals at the UEFA Euro 2012 and the round of 16 at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
