Friday's match between Germany and Greece is a fight for a spot in the semifinals of Euro Cup 2012, the European championship tournament that's played every four years, but the game is also being seen as the athletic version of the fight over the future of the Eurozone, a game between the most cash-strapped nation, Greece, and its paymaster, Germany. Some have called it the "debt derby."
