Greece prime minister Antonis Samaras will reportedly try to meet the national football team's request of building a new training facility.

The squad sent a letter to parliament rejecting an offer of bonus pay after they were knocked out of the World Cup by Costa Rica at the weekend.

Instead of receiving extra money, the players urged the prime minister to invest in a new training ground in order to help develop the national team.

According to BBC Sport, the players have been told that Samaras will do 'everything possible' to meet their request.

The team's current training facility in Athens is due to be closed down.
