Didn't even realise Greece were in the world cup.

A team hasn't been picked, probably because Fernando Santos himself doesn't know who he's going to pick. I'm half expecting Charisteas, Basinas, Dellas and Fyssas to be called up.

I was wondering out of curiosity, is it common for Cypriots to root for Greece during major tournaments?

I could probably get in the Cyprus team, tbh.

But yes, everyone I know will be rooting for Greece.

Yes, it's very common.

Don't want to get into politics of the island, but 3 of the 5 top teams on the island regularly display Greek flags at their home games so it shouldn't be much of a surprise.

Avraam Papadopoulos, Vyntra, Tziolis, Katsouranis, Karagounis, Dimitris Papadopoulos and Gekas shouldn't be allowed within 50 miles of the squad...

Can possibly add Holebas to that list too. But wait and see, I predict at least 4 of these players will start the first game.
