The 2004 European champions can return home with their heads held high after acquitting themselves well in the tournament, only the second World Cup they have qualified for in their history.
Despite a disappointing 2-0 loss to Korea Republic in their opening game, Greece came from behind to beat Nigeria 2-1, and finished their tournament by holding off an extremely impressive Argentina for 77 minutes before conceding twice and although it wasn't enough to progress, Samaras insists the experience was a great one.
"The players are disappointed by the game against South Korea but the last two games against Nigeria and Argentina we did all we can, gave 100% and in the end we were really happy with our performance as a team," said Samaras.
"We enjoy the football because that is what it is all about. It has been a great experience. It is a world football party."
The Celtic striker started twice and came off the bench for the other match in Group B.
