Euro 2016: Georgios Samaras on penalty kicks, Greece, and the semifinal field

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - July 5, 2016 - 34:38

The semifinals of Euro 2016 are set, and special guest Georgios Samaras joins the Planet Futbol Podcast to break it all down. Greece's surprising 2004 European championship happened before Samaras was a fixture on the team, but the striker recalls his memories of watching the team play and offers some insight into how that win shaped the next generation of Greek players. Samaras also offers an inside look at Portugal coach Fernando Santos, who Samaras worked with extensively as a member of the Greek national team. The podcast wraps up with host Avi Creditor and SI.com's Alex Abnos breaking down both of the semifinal matchups and offering a (perhaps not-so-confident) pick of who the world will see compete in the Euro 2016 final later this week.
