Raúl González's constant harrying of the Greek defence during Spain's Group A match against Greece earned him the Carlsberg Man of the Match award.

Constant danger
Once again, Raúl played just behind Fernando Morientes in the Spanish attack. His every move was followed by Greek midfield player Konstantinos Katsouranis, but the Real Madrid FC forward frequently evaded his marker to create constant danger for the besieged Greek back-line

Clever back-heel
Before the half-hour, Raúl pounced on a loose ball on the edge of the penalty box after Mihalis Kapsis lost control. He cleverly back-heeled to Morientes, who jinked before calmly putting Spain ahead. After Greece equalised in the second-half, Raúl continued to press, but despite two headers, he could not score the goal his fine individual performance merited.
