Greece-Cyprus

Recommended Posts

Alas, my 2 homelands oppose each other in Patra. As the new mod of the Cypriot National Team forum I should root for Cyprus. Maybe I pray for a draw......PAME KYPRO.......or PAME ELLADA......OH THIS IS SO DIFFICULT. Any other halfies out there?!

Talk about having split loyalties here! To be honest though, because it's a friendly, I'll probably be rooting for the underdogs... Greece! :P Nah seriously, I'll be rooting for the underdogs: Cyprus. The way i see it, is like a city of Greece is playing the rest of the country. If you're from Thessaloniki and a city-team played Greece, you'd probably support Thessaloniki right? That's the logic I'm approaching this with. So I want the underdogs! :P

One thing's for sure though, I want no injuries!!!!!!!!!!!

This should be a very good "friendly" for Greece as Cyprus tend to go all out to beat the brethren.

No experimenting/getting into shape/preparing here! This is a dress rehearsal for Euro 2008!

...Yes, there was the trip by Greece to Cyprus where they failed to play the Cypriot NT at King Otto's request...

I think the timing is much better now for our two NTs to meet.

Hot GSP??? :huh: Unless they start playing the games in Lemesso again we'll never see a "hot" atmosphere for Cypriot NT games.

@ Omonia9: There aren't any friendlies to go so each one is vital for preparation. Greece will def play a full team.

I can't believe I'll be supporting a team playing Greece, I feel sick at the thought! :P But the banter on here after the game finishes Greece 1-2 Cyprus will be priceless! :D

I got a feeling both teams won't play real hard, both teams will make this an entertaining match.

1 - 1

A draw would be fine, but rooting for a draw is stupid.

HAHA That's fighting talk! :P

Don't underestimate Cyprus. The team's forward quartet of Konstantinou, Okkas, Alonefti and Makridi are quite dangerous. :D

6-0, 3-0... these predictions will only make the Cypriots more determined! :P

Personally I think it will be a high scoring game. Whenever the 2 meet it's always like 4-2 or something. It will be really good to see :tup:

I still think the game should have been played in Cyprus though <_< Greece needs to play as many away games as possible in preperation for Euro 2008, and it would also have given the Cypriots a chance to give them a great send off.

what is to estimate about Cyprus.....there awful :LOL:

its a friendly anyways...Greece will likley just be testing out things offensively, a result isnt important, finding what works for Greece's offense will likely be the only focus of the game.

You'll be in for a surprise in this game then. Cyprus batter her small counter-parts. Ireland, Wales, Malta, etc are all inferior. While Cyprus has drawn with Germany at home (and had a late goal ruled off for offside), you think many teams would do that? Cyprus also given France and Portugal a scare in the past too, the Czechs also. Cyprus are very good going forward, up until a couple of years ago when they were all at their best Okkas, Konstantinou, Alonefti, Georgallidis and possibly Makridi would all have been in the Greece squad and in some cases the first team. There isn't depth in the squad though, so having 5 good players isn't good enough to qualify for a major tournament, but you'll be pleasantly surprised when you see them in this game.

a few near misses with Germany and Czech Rep in games they didnt care about isnt proving anything man....well see on the game..but historically, Cyprus are awful.

Im sure they have some decent players but i dont think the result will shock anybody...Greece needs to get in the habbit of scoring goals and being confident about it.....Im hoping thats what this game accomplishes...

Games they didnt care about? They both wanted to win the group and Cyprus was a must win game. And so what if it was a game that they didn't really care about? when Germany beat england in a friendly recently they didnt really care either.ou' do you think greece would beat germany in a game the germans wouldnt really care about?

with regards to cyprus, you are doing what many foreigners do with regards to Greece. You rate the team based on reputation. Have you actually seen Cyprus play or are you saying they're awful because of reputation? Cyprus aren't the most effective team because they don't have enough depth, but they play attractive, attacking football.

Cyprus is up and coming, and if you don't realize that, you need to watch a damn match.
