Euro 2020 Group J - Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Greece (26 March 2019, Bilino Polje Stadium, Zenica)

Recommended Posts

Boys Samaris looks like he’s starting to solidly his spot as a starter good for him.. For me and some of you might disagree but Zeca to me has so much heart and he hustles like crazy and you can see this guy plays his ass off for the NT...

Samaris is looking like the player we were hoping he'd be.  He's been a leader these two matches.

In 2 games we have created more chances and showed more attacking mindset than the in the past 3 years.

Masouras kai Kolovos can help; I like Siovas btw. The one that I don't like is bakakis; we should find a better option. Fourtounis was very good; Zeka's versatility is huge.

He's always had the skill. Just training with the class of Benfica should be good enough technically to earn you starting role. It was upstairs that was plaguing him. Hopefully he has matured into the player that we all anticipated.

Our attack looked very fluid there in the 2nd half something we havent seen that much off in along time.

Beautiful goal from Kolovos

can't wait for retsos and torosidis return from injury. Bakakis was pretty bad this game. (He's decent though overall the hate is a bit unwarranted. He's pretty engine and was key in the AEK double)

Koulouris needs to get the respect he deserves and be our striker when mitroglou isnt performing

Donis needs to play as a winger. His headers are so weak and he's not tall enough to be an aerial threat anyways, it's his pace that makes him great, which is utilized on the wingz.

Not me! I am the "president" of Zeka's fun club.

If you rate his performance's in NT games he has played he is on to tier along with manolas, soktakis & fourtounis.

Although we are plagued with injuries, primarily at the back, I would say that we fielded our strongest lineup in the second half, barring Manolas, who is still ahead of Siovas, despite the latter's strong play, and maybe Toro or Retso over Bakakis. 

Bakaseta shouldn't even be on the team, Mantalo is a sub at best, KPap, Staf and Tsimikas are backups, Mitroglou is irrelevant, nothing more than a super-sub going forward.

Kolovos had a half volley in the box saved too.

Fortounis had a great chance in the first half. Greece created lots of chanced today, last time in Zenica we had one chance to score with Mantalos missing a sitter.

When Bosnia come to Greece we will beat them if we play the same way as we did in the 2nd half and with a healthy Manolas.

I think Finland maybe our biggest threat for second place in the group. If we can pull of a win with Italy then we are in a tremendous position going forward as Italy will play Bosnia twice going forward and will most likely take 4 points from them if not all 6.

And Kolovos was great. I must admit I never rated him I thought that he was better than Bakasetas but that was all.

I'm craving some post match interviews with players/coaches and analysis but hard to come by from smaller nations playing each other.

We had the fighting spirit vs. Belgium and Bosnia last series too.

was only the euro 2016 qualifier that was really that bad. going out to world cup finalists without one of our best defenders manolas (getting short end of stick on uefa on that call)

Bosnia lack the mental toughness in these matches that's why Im not sold on them. They have two great players in Pjanic and Dzeko but we all saw Pjanic lose his mind and take a straight red for nothing. You cant do those things in these big matches and expect to win.

they're hot heads and our players caught on to this and were trying to be extra civil to calm them down.

      UEFA Nations League format confirmed
      UEFA has confirmed the final competition rules and regulations for the UEFA Nations League, less than a year before the first match is due to be played on 6 September 2018. The new logo for the tournament was also unveiled following Wednesday's UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Nyon.
      All you need to know about the UEFA Nations League
      2018/19 UEFA Nations League: how it works
      The UEFA Nations League is a new competition that aims to ensure the continued success of national team football by replacing most friendlies with competitive matches and by allowing all nations to play against equally ranked teams.
      All 55 UEFA associations enter.
      The teams are split into four leagues, A–B–C–D, according to their position in the UEFA National Team Coefficient Rankings following the end of the European Qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup (as per 11 October 2017; play-off results will not be included).
      League A will consist of the 12 top-ranked teams. The next 12 teams will be in League B, the next 15 in League C and the remaining 16 in League D.
      Leagues A and B will each comprise four groups of three teams.
      League C will contain one group of three teams and three groups of four sides; League D will be formed by four groups of four teams.
      All draw procedures to be confirmed. Matches to be played home and away between September and November 2018 (teams will play four or six games depending on the size of their group).
      The four group winners of League A will qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals, to be held in June 2019, with two semi-finals, a third-place match and the final. One host country will be appointed by the UEFA Executive Committee in December 2018 from among the finalist teams.
      The group winners in Leagues B, C and D will gain promotion and those who finish bottom of the groups in Leagues A, B and C will be relegated.
      National teams will thus either be competing to become UEFA Nations League winners, or be fighting for promotion and to avoid relegation.
      The League Phase Draw for the UEFA Nations League will take place at the SwissTech Convention Centre in Lausanne on 24 January 2018, when the new UEFA Nations League trophy will also be unveiled.
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020 remains largely the same (with 24 finalists in all), although the European Qualifiers will now begin in the March after a major tournament instead of immediately in September (i.e. March 2019 in this case). No team will gain auomatic qualification as hosts (there are 13 host nations in all).
      Qualifying group stage (20 teams qualify)
      The teams will be split into ten groups of five or six, and the top two from each group will qualify for the final tournament, determining the first 20 places.
      Play-offs (4 teams qualify) 
      The last four EURO places will be won through the European Qualifiers play-offs, which will be contested by the 16 UEFA Nations League group winners (i.e. the four group winners in each of the four divisions).
      Each league will have a path of its own and each path will feature two single-leg semi-finals and one single-leg final.  The winner of each path will win a ticket to UEFA EURO 2020.
      If a UEFA Nations League group winner has already qualified via the European Qualifiers, then their spot will go to the next best-ranked team in their league. If a league does not have four teams to compete, the remaining slots are allocated to teams from another league, according to the overall UEFA Nations League rankings.

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι του Ολυμπιακού στα προκριματικά
       

       
      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στον τρίτο προκριματικό είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: Χάποελ Μπερ Σεβά (Ισραήλ), Αστάνα (Καζακστάν), Παρτιζάν (Σερβία), Ριέκα (Κροατία), Ρόζενμποργκ (Νορβηγία), Σλάβια Πράγας (Τσεχία), Χαφναρφιόρντουρ (Ισλανδία), Βιτορούλ (Ρουμανία), Ζίλινα (Σλοβακία), Ζαλγκίρις (Λιθουανία) 

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στα play offs είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: ΑΠΟΕΛ (Κύπρος), Μάλμε (Σουηδία), Μπάτε Μπορίσοφ (Λευκορωσία), Μάριμπορ (Σλοβενία), Καραμπάχ (Αζερμπαϊτζάν). 

      Ο Ολυμπιακός φέτος (όπως και πέρυσι) θα έχει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία σε αυτούς τους δύο προκριματικούς, καθώς έχει συγκεντρώσει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία (64.580) την τελευταία πενταετία, ενώ δεύτερη (και αρκετά πίσω του) είναι η Σέλτικ με 42.785 βαθμούς.
