Saez's troops dominated the encounter but were left to rue two points dropped after Angelos Charisteas nicked a second half leveller to cancel out Fernando Morientes's first half goal.
It was a classic smash-and-grab from Otto Rehhagel's men, who are still top of the group thanks to the result.
"We made our only error in the second half and it cost us a draw," stated Saez.
"We attacked well but we just weren't able to finish off some promising moves.
"We had the game within our grasp."
Midfielder David Albelda insisted that the draw will not put extra pressure on Spain's final group game against hosts Portugal.
"We have one loss of concentration and against a tough team like Greece, you can't afford to make those sort of mistakes," said the Valencia star.
"Whatever happens now it's down to the Portugal game, but then again, that's what we came here for."
