Finally, coach Alketas Panagoulias helped Greece take their first place at a major finals tournament in 1980, as they finished ahead of Hungary, Finland and the Soviet Union in their European Championship qualifying group.
However, they were to lose two of their three games in Italy, and had only one point from a goalless draw against eventual winners West Germany to show for their efforts.
