Greece defender Giannis Maniatis will just have to miss his own wedding in the event that his side make it to the July 1 final of Euro 2012, teammate Dimitris Salpingidis said yesterday

Pressed on what would happen if Greece continue their march in the tournament, Salpingidis quipped: “He won’t be at the wedding!” Greece brace for Friday’s crunch quarter-final with Germany.

Salpingidis laughed off suggestions that the fact that Olympiakos’ Maniatis is planning to tie the knot the same day means they don’t rate their chances of getting that far. “He arranged the wedding a year-and-a-half ago, when he didn’t even know if we’d be at Euro 2012,” the PAOK striker told reporters.
