    Boys this game isn't going to be easy. That stadium is going to be electric and the Georgian team is looking to make history in front of there fans. They sold out the entire stadium in 5 hours 54K. Greece needs to try and get an early goal to take the crowd out of it early. its going to be a tough game.


    Αμόκ στη Γεωργία για το ματς της ιστορίας της: Σε πέντε ώρες εξαντλήθηκαν τα 54.000 εισιτήρια για τον τελικό πρόκρισης στο Euro 2024 με την Ελλάδα (sport24.gr)

    If Greece come out and perform as they did vs Kazakhstan I can see us being up 2 goals by halftime. We have the better eleven overall. Go ??

    Why they didn't reseed based on FIFA rank is baffling.  Greece should be playing both at home!  

    I agree with you but they did a draw after qualifying ended. Wales also gets two home matches and will play Poland at home. Greece have won the last 4 matches in Georgia. Most recently in 2022 wcup qualifier 2 nil. Georgia is a better team but we have improved a lot since JVS left and Poyet has the team beating countries that Greece should be beating. Let’s Go ??

    Considering we haven't made a major tournament in years this team is in no position to take any team lightly. This wont be an easy match and they better not start looking to the final match before this game is over. Kazakhstan will not be an easy out. In saying that we have a golden opportunity to finally make a major tournament and if Greece cant come out on top against Kazakhstan, Georgia or Luxemburg than we really haven't progressed at all under Poyet. We need to now take that next step.

    You’re right Greece can’t look ahead. Have to focus on Kazakhstan. They have improved and got a win vs Denmark. Overall we have much more talent and depth on our roster but the team has to come out ready to play from kick off.

    Giannoulis out injured, only one left-back in the squad. Good to see Tzolis back in, deserved call-up. 

    I don't really understand what is going on with Tzavellas. He apparently played his last game for the Ethniki in November, yet he continues to be a part of the call-ups. It was my understanding he would be a member of the coaching staff/a mentor of sorts. They clearly want to take him to the Euros if we qualify, but again if that is the case then why retire?  Or if he is done as a player and is just a part of the coaching staff, then why does he need to be included in the playing squad? 

    Not a big deal but it doesn't make any sense to me. 

    I thought Tzavellas retired in November? I can understand having him around the guys as he has experience and can help them approach these matches. Glad to see Tzolis called up hopefully Poyet puts him on the field with Konstantellias and our attack looks formidable.

    You can expect England to qualify directly to the world cup which would leave the 2nd place team in our division the team to go to the playoffs if I'm not mistaken. 

    I was thinking the same thing. England will most likely get a cream puff WCUP qualifying draw and get first so then if Greece finish second in Nations League it might give us a playoff spot if we need it. 
    As for the group I am confident Greece will get 2nd place and push England for top spot. We will get a result vs England as we got a 2-2 draw against a much better France.

  6. Greece got the tougher group. I thought we would land in Wales group. England will be tough but you never know they got smoked by Hungary in last NL. Looking forward to playing those English fools. Finland away is always difficult but I see us beating Ireland twice who will be at the bottom of this group.

    After about 2 months as the starting left back (due to Andy Robertson's injury), Tsimikas has broken his collarbone in an unlucky incident where he was shoved into his own coach and landed awkwardly on his collarbone. 

    He will be out for a while, early reports are at least 3 months which would put him in big doubt for the playoff against Kazakhstan and any potential subsequent playoff final. 


    What a disaster! Saka shoved him. We need our starters to be fit and ready for March. Very concerning.
