Forgotten Everton striker posts pics of 'amazing night' on international duty

Euro 2004 Final Greece Portugal

Apostolos Vellios was part of a Greek under-21 side who came back from a goal down to beat Turkey 2-1 yesterday - with NINE men!

The England game last night was fairly undramatic - although there was still plenty of drama doing the rounds in international football last night, just ask any Australia or Ecuador fan.

But perhaps the hardest fought game in the international calendar yesterday - and perhaps the most impressive result - has to be the Greece vs Turkey under-21 match up.

The two nations are not exactly what you would call the best of friends anyway - so this politically charged match was always going to be one to keep an eye on.

But what happened was quite frankly incredible.

Greece did their best to throw the game away early on.

After just 25 minutes they found themselves 1-0 down and they were also reduced to not ten, but NINE men.

Panathinaikos full-back Konstantinos Triantafyllopoulos was sent off in the tenth minute - and 15 minutes later the marching orders were given to PAOK Salonika midfielder Stelios Kitsiou.

With Antalyaspor maestro Emrah Bassan scoring in between - this game looked dead and buried.

But the Greek’s pulled out an against all odds win if legendary proportions - that will live long in the memory of the players involved.

One such player was Everton striker Apostolos Vellios.

A forgotten man at Goodison Park - he has not played for The Toffees since a seven minute cameo against Swansea City in January 2013.

But he came on as a late sub for Sunderland flop Chari Mavrias - and has been posting some special pictures from the occasion.
