ATHENS, Nov 12 (Reuters) Greece coach Otto Rehaggel has dropped Nuremburg striker Angelos Charisteas for the last two games of the Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.

The European champions have already secured their place in next year's finals in Austria and Switzerland but Rehaggel has resisted the temptation to experiment with new players.
