Greece Beat Croatia 2-0 to Top Group F

Greece took pole position for Euro 2012 qualification in Group F by beating Croatia 2-0 on Friday thanks to two second half goals that moved them clear at the top.
Giorgos Samaras and Fanis Gekas secured the victory, which put Greece on 21 points ahead of Croatia with 19 and the Greeks will qualify if they avoid defeat in Georgia on Tuesday.
Greece dominated the second half and the opening goal came after 70 minutes when the ball fell to the unmarked Samaras at the edge of the penalty area from a corner and he volleyed home.
The game was temporarily suspended less than three minutes after kickoff on Friday when over 100 masked individuals entered a stand and attacked the Croatia supporters.
The group, some wearing motorcycle helmets, threw flares and at least one petrol bomb in their direction. Some Croatia fans responded by ripping off seats and throwing them at their attackers.
The game resumed after a six-minute interruption, but the Croat supporters, said to number about 700, continued ripping seats and throwing them at riot police, who responded with pepper spray.
Croatia fans were involved in pre-game incidents, causing damages in the port of Piraeus, near the stadium where the game is being played.
