Bring us Merkel', Greeks say after Euro 2012 qualifier

Greek sports dailies on Sunday were itching for a showdown with European powerhouse Germany -- unpopular there over a huge EU-IMF economic bailout -- after Greece advanced to the quarter-finals.

"Bring us (German Chancellor Angela) Merkel," said Goal News after Greece shocked Russia 1-0 on Saturda.

"You will never get Greece out of the Euro," the paper said.

Germany -- and Merkel personally -- are identified in Greece with pressure for painful salary and pension cuts.

"This is how your debtors qualify, Angela get ready," said Sport Day.

"You IMF our Greece, we TNT your Euro," added Metro Sport, adding there was "endless bliss and pride across the country."
