Nov 18, 2009 - 8:08 PM DONETSK, Ukraine(AP) -- Greece reached the World Cup for just the second time, beating Ukraine 1-0 Wednesday night behind Dimitrios Salpigidis' goal in the 31st minute.

The teams had played a 0-0 tie last weekend in Athens, and Greece won the total-goals series on 1-0 aggregate.

Greece went 0-3 at the 1994 World Cup in the United States.

Salpigidis scored off a pass from Georgios Samaras for his second international goal in 29 appearances.
