VIENNA, AUSTIRA – Few hours after her qualification to the Grand Final, Maria Elena Kyriakou seems to have made a statement that actually shocked the Greek Eurofans: “The Greek Government doesn’t want us to win!”
“I started to cry like a baby when qualified, I couldn’t stop and control it. It’s not that I didn’t expect it but the truth is that you are 50% sure only, everything can happen and when the called the names and didn’t hear our name I got stressed and I said ‘what’s going on here’ and when I heard the name finally, I cried”
When it comes to the political statement Maria Elena said: “I wish we can win, I know our government doesn’t want us to win because they will have hard time to host it, but I strongly believe that Greece has great volunteer spirit and at any time can support the contest”.
