Looked crushed as he was subbed after 20 minutes but he was twice inches away from denying Czech's goals. Close is not good enough, though.
Olympiacos defender had a nightmare, as Gebre Selassie and Jiracek again and again exposed his poor positioning in the first half.
Apart from needless foul on Pilar for which he was given yellow card, he was the only threat with his precise crossing - from one of them Salpingidis should have scored.
Nervous performance from Greek youngster, as he failed to keep Pilar's away from scoring and getting himself a booking for dangerous challenge.
Very average performance as Greek midfielder was easily run past by Jiracek couple of times. Surprisingly, kept on the pitch for more than an hour.
Looked lost in the middle and failed to calm his troops down when they struggled the most in the first half.
Felt rather uncomfortable in the middle of the pitch and played mostly safe passes, at least playing better defensively in the second half.
Woeful evening for him as well. Despite his experience, he looked lost at the center back where he had to step in because of suspensions and injuries in his Greek team.
Caught offside three times even before half time, he should be given a goal when he headed ball into the net at the end of the first half.
Introduction of Gekas allowed him to play deeper and he provided an assists for Gekas goal. However, the Celtic front man failed to provide any danger himself.
Awful mistake for Gekas' goal where he fumbled disastrously to give the Greeks a goal.
T. Gebre Selassie
Not afraid to go forward, the Czech right back provided an assist to the second goal and suppressed any danger on his own half.
Cech had a lot of complains over his positioning for the first goal but Besiktas' defender won most of his headers and was calm throughout the evening.
Coped well against Salipingidis, stopping him with fine tackling but never provided any threat on the other end.
He played much better than against Russia and won many important tackles in own box, without making mistake.
Even though his performance was less spectacular, he made a lot of smart runs and linked well with his teammates.
He went into the game with great confidence, drifting inside from left wing - exactly like for the second goal. Faded away in the second half.
Great performance from Czech's defensive midfielder, as he provided a great through pass for the first goal and stopped Greece attacks several times.
Wolfsburg's midfielder noted brilliant game, dribbling past Greeks easily even on his own half, while the fine finish for the first goal only adds to his performance.
His vision and movement were particularly brilliant as Czech Gooner took advantage of every gap he saw in Greek back line. He was subbed at halftime, possibly because of the needless yellow he was shown.
Put in a lot of effort against Greek defenders, holding the ball up well but failing to create chances or find himself in one.
