Konstantinos Mitroglou is out of the starting lineup once again as Greece face off against Costa Rica in the round of 16. Greece got through to the round of 16 through a late penalty in added time against the Ivory Coast. They play a defensive style that relies on the counter attack and will be looking for a 1-0 win.

Greece found lighting in a bottle in the waning seconds of a 1-1 match they had to win when they scored from the spot and are now moving on to the Round of 16 in a 2-1 thriller.

It was veteran Georgios Samaras who stepped up to convert the pen and hand Greece perhaps the biggest moment in their country's history, though the foul that gave them the chance could be argued as undeserved. Still, it is a monumental achievement for their program and though Costa Rica has shown themselves well thus far, they have to feel pretty good about getting them as their Round of 16 opponent. Kostas Mitroglou remained on the bench throughout the match and his chances of starting against Costa Rica look pretty slim.

Greece Starting XI: Karnezis, Maniatis, Manolas, Samaras, Kone, Karagounis (c), Salpingidis, Torosidis, Lazaros, Sokratis, Cholevas.

Konstantinos Mitroglou is once again not in Greece's starting lineup after looking poor in their first match. Mitroglou has had a lot of injury problems as of late and it's unknown if his poor play has been due to injuries or lack of form. Greece is in a must win situation but they also need Japan to lose or tie if they are to have a realistic chance of making it through.

Things looked dire for Greece when Kostas Mitroglou was forced off due to injury as well as loosing their captain to a red card but they managed a 0-0 draw against an ineffective Japan.

Greece earn their first ever clean sheet in a World Cup tournament and by doing so keep a shred of hope alive to advance. After an injury-riddled debut half-season with Fulham, Mitroglou furthered his reputation as a man made of glass, leaving the match in the 35th minute. After going down to 10 men, the common strategy would have been to park the bus, but Japan were so ineffective Greece may have enjoyed their best attacking form thus far in the tourney sans a player. Both sides need a win and miraculous help in order to advance now.

Greece XI: Karnezis, Maniatis, Manolas, Samaras, Kone, Mitroglou, Torosidis, Fetfazidis, Sokratis, Cholevas, Katsouranis

Kostas Mitroglou gets handed a start here as Greece will need to get at least a draw to have any real chance of advancing. He certainly provides some bulk up top but the bottom line is he needs to find the net for a Greece side who notoriously struggle for goals.

Greece went down a goal early but had chances to equalize for a long stretch of the match, however their inability to score in the World Cup continues on as Colombia dispose of them 3-0.

Premier League reps Kostas Mitroglou and Giorgs Karagounis were both brought on as substitutes in the final half hour but it made no difference as Colombia had the game in hand by then. Greece has now been outscored 18-2 in the history of the competition as their reputation for lack of scoring continues.

Greece XI: Karnezis; Maniatis, Manolas, Samaras, Kone; Salpingidis, Torosidis, Gekas, Sokratis; Cholevas, Katsouranis

Kostas Mitroglou was pegged to start for Greece, offering a strong presence in their attack but it appears he doesn't fit in the inital plans. Fulham teammate Giorgos Karagouis and veteran of the Greek national team is also on the bench as the starting XI fails to feature a Premier League player.
Jun 14 - 11:09 AM

Kostas Mitroglou made the final cut and has been included in Greece's 23-man squad for World Cup 2014.

Despite a disappointing, injury-riddled 2014 since joining Fulham, Mitroglou provides youth and a physical presence among the forward options for Greece and has shown manager Fernando Santos some quality during the qualifying stages. Giorgios Samaras will likely be the featured striker for the Piratiko in the tournament.

Felix Magath stated via Fulham's official twitter feed that Kostas Mitroglou will not be available this weekend but hopes to have the striker back for their following match.

If Fulham are relegated, the seemingly endless issues at the striker position will be just as culpable as their shoddy defending has been. Dimitar Berbatov was a big name who needed big wages, and his half season was not a memorable one. Darren Bent can't seem to find any form or continued faith from his manager, and the Mitroglou signing to replace Berbatov has been a disaster. It would be difficult to see Magath not rewarding last weeks hero off the bench Hugo Rodallega with a start up top, but Bent or youngster Cauley Woodrow could still be in the thinking.

In a situation that continues to get worse, Fulham FC are potentially losing Kostas Mitoglou for the remainder of the season due to an ongoing knee issue.

The purchase of the Greek striker during the January window may go down as one of the poorest investments in Premier League history. As the report points out, because of injuries and lack of match fitness, "Mitroglou has cost Fulham £103,529 for every minute he has played." It was a boom or bust move for the Cottagers to spend big money on one player when so may other needs required meeting, and it looks safe to say now that it has officially been a bust. Felix Magath is optimistic that Mitroglu could still return in a couple weeks, but by that point it will likely be too late to help their chances of staying up.
Apr 2 - 8:51 AM

Fulham's official Twitter offered bad news for Felix Magath's side, as the Cottagers have formally ruled out Kostas Mitrolgu, Ashkan Dejagah and Dan Burn for their match.

Tough blow for the Cottagers, trying to build off of their win against Newcastle. it was Dejagah that scored Fulham's game-winner last week, and of course another missed game for their high-priced Greek striker will not help their attack either. Of course, in fantasy terms, this news shouldn't matter much, as Fulham have just the one match and it is away to the Etihad.
Mar 20 - 6:10 PM

Kostas Mitroglou's honeymoon with Fulham continues to go horribly wrong, as he suffered another injury setback while on international duty for Greece in midweek, making him extremely unlikely to start against Cardiff City this weekend.

Mitroglou had been reduced to one appearance as a substitute up until now, with questions of his match fitness delaying any sort of theatrical debut. The international work was an opportunity to show he was ready to go, and instead came up with a limp hamstring after an hour of play. Expect Darren Bent to lead the line for the Cottagers this weekend barring a quick turnaround for Mitroglou.
Mar 7 - 10:44 AM

Kostas Mitroglou has been ruled out by manager Felix McGath as he still has not been deemed match fit since his arrival to Craven Cottage.

Things continue to fall apart for Fulham FC as they made perhaps the biggest signing in the January transfer window not named Juan Mata, spending 12 million on the Greek international, and he has only played a half an hour in his first month as a Cottager. Time is running out on their chances to avoid relegation and they cannot afford to have a player of that caliber continue to miss matches. Damien Duff and Fernando Amorebieta have also been ruled out for this weekend's daunting match with top side Chelsea.

Fulham have shown their instability yet again this season as they have named their third manager of the campaign...and it wasn't the one everyone expected.

That Rene Meulensteen was sacked has yet again shown what a mess Fulham have become this season but it wasn't a huge surprise. What does come as a surprise is the name of his successor, Felix Magath. The manager, who has always ever managed in Germany brings a reputation for being a strict disciplinarian who ensures that his players are as fit as they can possibly be. It certainly can't hurt given the results that have seen two managers sacked already this season.
Feb 14 - 5:51 PM

Fulham's key acquisition in the January transfer window, Kostas Mitroglou is still not match fit and will require further training before making his debut for his new club, ruling him out of the Cottagers match with Liverpool tomorrow.

With an extended break until Fulham's next match following Liverpool, it should provide enough time to get Mitroglou ready for West Brom on February 22nd. Rene Meulensteen rolled out a false 9 last time out against Manchester United, with Darren Bent coming on in the second half as their only true striker, and it worked out for them, but it is hard to imagine that strategy, or any other for that maatter, helping their chances against Liverpool.
