If Greece can provide attacking forward Konstantinos Mitroglou with the right service, he will surely provide them with the fire-power to do well this summer in Brazil. Having helped the side to the 2014 World Cup with three goals against Romania in the qualifying play-offs, Mitroglou will be a major tip to place in individual match markets to score first, last or anytime for Greece in a wide open Group C.
Mitroglou began his career at Maura Poulia and scored 24 goals in just 16 matches while at the tender age of 11. The Greek player continued to show his talents at MSV Duisburg between 2001-2005 and then Borussia Mönchengladbach the following year, scoring a record five goals in a single match and proving a dominant player in the Under 19 Fußball-Bundesliga.
Greek champions Olympiacos signed Mitroglou after he also impressed in the 2007 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship. He stayed loyal to the club until 2014 and was part of the club that claimed the Superleague title four times during that spell.
Mitroglou also enjoyed Champions League football during his time at Olympiacos before moving to Panionios FC on a six-month loan in 2011. He scored the two winning goals on his debut against Aris, ending with eight goals in 11 showings.
He was loaned to Atromitos for the full 2011/12 season that followed and scored many crucial game-winning goals along the way, ending the season with 19 goals in 39 appearances before returning to Olympiacos.
Mitroglou soon signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with Premier League club Fulham for a fee of around £12 million in January 2013, the highest in the English club's history. Injuries however limited him to just three appearances in 2014.
In 2009 Mitroglou was chosen for the senior Greece international side for the first time, and has since racked up 32 caps and a total of eight goals for his country.
Mitroglou competed in 12 World Cup 2014 qualifying matches for Greece and scored a total of five goals during that period, three of those coming against Romania in the pair of crucial play-off matches.
Konstantinos Mitroglou World Cup betting tips
Mitroglou will team up with strike partner Dimitris Salpingidis to try and help Greece out of a Group C they can certainly top against Ivory Coast, Japan and Colombia. Mitroglou could prove to be Greece's most dangerous player in front of goal and therefore a strong tip to score in individual matches, while the betting odds place him as favourite to be the side's top goalscorer.
