Greece defender Vasilis Torosidis has emerged as a doubt for the Euro 2012 opener against Poland.

The versatile Olympiakos full-back, who can also play on the wing, suffered a knee injury in Saturday's friendly clash with Slovenia in Austria.

Subsequent scans have revealed no major ligament damage but Torosidis is still complaining of pain in the joint and has therefore been ruled out of Thursday's meeting with Armenia.

There is now a fear that he could be out of action for up to 10 days, putting his participation in the game against Poland on June 8 in serious jeopardy.

However, the 26-year-old will almost certainly be included in Greece's final squad when it is announced by coach Fernando Santos on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, it is believed that Panagiotis Kone will be one of the two players cut from the provisional squad, with the 24-year-old Bologna midfielder having been sent off in the draw with Slovenia after lashing out at Valter Birsa.
