Republic of Ireland's Seamus Coleman insists that his side should have defeated Greece in tonight's friendly.

Republic of Ireland's Seamus Coleman has expressed his disappointment following his team's 1-0 friendly defeat to Greece.

The Everton star insisted that his side should have won the game, and revealed his frustration at having a strong penalty claim turned down when Konstantinos Stafylidis appeared to handle in the area.

"I thought we played very well, I thought we deserved to win the game. We passed the ball very well at times and we're just disappointed to get nothing from it," he told Sky Sports News.

"I thought we definitely had a penalty claim in the first minute of the game. I thought it was a stonewall penalty but I thought we played all right. Just disappointed to get nothing from it."

A first-half strike from Jose Holebas condemned Giovanni Trapattoni's side to defeat in what was their final fixture of 2012.
