Greece will rely on Kostas Mitroglou to fire them into the knockout stage of the World Cup finals and after a slow start to his international career, and now at Fulham, the striker wants to show his true worth in Brazil.
Known as 'Mitrogoal' and 'Pistolero' (gunslinger) by Greek fans for his gun-toting goal celebrations as well as his strike rate, the forward left Olympiakos Piraeus for Fulham in January for 12 million pounds.
As well as an impressive strike rate, Mitroglou also showed maturity in leading the Greek champions' attack and it will be fascinating to see how he eventually adapts to life in the Premier League if he gets the chance.
Somewhat media-shy, Mitroglou hit the headlines by becoming the first Greek to score a Champions League hat-trick with a treble for Olympiakos at Anderlecht in October.
The forward was not a favourite of former Greece coach Otto Rehhagel and even the first few years under current boss Fernando Santos were difficult.
But any doubts about his ability to lead the Greek attack disappeared in the first half of the season, especially after Mitroglou scored three goals in a two-leg playoff victory over Romania that sealed Greece's ticket to Brazil.
