Three things have to happen ; 1    Mantalos as a central player or not in the team; 2    To pick a RB and Not a CB playing there (unless it was (Retsos-injured); 3     To pick a Cm with

Skank WTF are you talking about? Where did I say I hate defensive football. And even if I did, what does it have to do with following the Greek NT? I don't follow the NT for the style they play, I fol

Last time we won any big game was at the 2014 WC, before that the qualifiers with Romania in 2013

Exactly my point.. We haven't beaten a good team in over 4 years... let that just sink in for a second for all of us... if we don't make the euro via the nations league we will be missing our 3rd consecutive tournament...

I can accept Serbia being up there at 29, but Tunisia at 26 lol we all saw how pathetic they were at the World Cup. Greece need to start winning matches and get back into the top 20 were we are accustomed too.

Hopefully Greece win there next 2 euro qualifiers and keep climbing the rankings. Tunisia at 28 is absolutely ridiculous and Romania at 25 they should be below us.

I feel like we will back where we belong and that’s the top 20. If our players can work hard play with passion then we can win games. Masouras and Kolovos seem like they are up for it against strong teams. Fortounis seems to be back to his best and Donis speed will be crucial for us. Add Mitroglou scoring goals, Zeca beast like hustle and our usual strong defence we can go far.

I like Masouras but I'm not sold on Kolovos. I think he just got lucky on that goal. No one marked him because he's not usually much of a threat. There's a reason why Masouaras is now a starter at Oly right away where as Kolovos could never crack the line up over several years as a starter. I'd rather Donis on the wing with Masouras and Mitroglou striker or Koulouris.

Yeah but this team has a problem of scoring and Kolovos made sure with his header. He deserves another call up as Mantalos and Pelkas have had so many chances and wouldn’t have scored like that.

If you remember Kolovos had another great chance but the Bosnian keeper stuck his foot out and made a good save. I'm not saying he deserves to start but he does deserve some more looks.

For sure. Clearly an upgrade from Bakasetas.

Can’t fault a guy for making and taking chances, he was very good on the ball and did more in one game then Bakasetas did in 20 so he earned his spot. Baka is the one that we shouldn’t be wasting a spot on

      There was no topic for The National Football team of Cyprus. Now there is.

      SKIBBE SET FOR BIG DECISIONS AHEAD OF BOSNIA MATCH
       
      The Greek National Team’s crucial match against Bosnia and Herzegovina in European Qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup is fast approaching. The away qualifier, to be played at the Bilino Polje Stadium in Zenica on June 9th, is a vital match that could go a long way in determining Greece’s chances for a place at Russia 2018.
      In the coming weeks, Ethniki boss Michael Skibbe will announce the squad for that crucial qualifier. And Skibbe will have some big decisions to make as five players will miss the match against the Bosnians. Andreas Samaris, Giorgos Tzavellas, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, and Panagiotis Tachtsidis are all ruled out due to suspension, with Samaris having accumulated yellows while Tzavellas and Tachtsidis were both sent off in the team’s last qualifier against Belgium. Kyriakos Papadopoulos will be serving his final match suspension for his actions against Bosnia in Greece.
      Also absent from the team will be long-term injury victim Nikos Karelis. 
      Skibbe is widely reported to be interested in calling up left-back Babis Lykogiannis for the first time. The Sturm Graz player has impressed with his performances as of late putting himself in the frame for a call-up to the senior team after having represented Greece at youth level. 
      Another player to have represented Greece’s younger national teams is also in line for a first call-up. Panathinaikos’ Dimitris Kourbelis could be selected as a back-up defensive midfielder. 
      It’s a big question whether Skibbe will call up Kourbelis and also keep faith in the young talent that were drafted into the squad recently. The smart money is that the German manager will hold onto the likes of Thanasis Androutsos and bring in Kourbelis and Giorgos Manthatis. It wouldn’t exactly be called a youth revolution, however it would a clear sign that Skibbe values what young Greek talent can bring to the table.
      Goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis is set for a return to the team meaning that more than likely Dimitris Kyriakidis will be dropped from the squad. 
      There could be some more surprises depending on injuries, however for now the squad is expected comprise of the players that were selected for the Belgium match.
      Below is the predicted squad for the match against Bosnia:
      Goalkeepers: Orestis Karnezis, Stefanos Kapino, Panagiotis Glykos
      Defenders: Kostas Manolas, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Vasilis Torosidis, Marios Oikonomou, Kostas Stafylidis, Babis Lykogiannis
      Midfielders: Zeca, Manolis Siopis, Kostas Fortounis, Giannis Maniatis, Petros Mantalos, Alexandros Tziolis, Thanasis Androutsos, Dimitris Kourbelis
      Forwards: Kostas Mitroglou, Giorgos Manthatis, Dimitris Diamantakos, Apostolos Vellios, Giannis Gianniotas, Tasos Bakasetas

      Brazil became the first country to qualify for this event after their 3-0 win over Paraguay. Uruguay and Argentina could go in front of them if they win everything and Brazil loses everything, but as they will face eachother one of them will fail to qualify directly (#5 will play a play-off).

      I believe this match will make or break Michael Skibbe's managerial career.
      it has a feel of 7 June 2003, Spain v Greece. Michael Skibbe has two or three uncapped youngsters from the Olympiacos system plus Mystakidis fom PAOK whom could mix in well with the tough & experienced campaigners of Karnezis, Sokratis, Manolas, Torosidis, Tzavellas, Samaris, Fortounis, Mitroglou & maybe a few others whom have been around the squad for quite a while to create the right formula to cause a upset away to Belgium.
      My prediction is Belgium 1 Greece 1.

      This will probably be the biggest match of the campaign. We can put ourselves in a great position to go to Russia with a win here.

      Friendly for the ethniki at home to Belarus in Piraeus at Karaiskaki. Good warmup for the bigger game 4 days later.

      My heart won't be pulled in two directions here. Cyprus looking for their first win at the Bosnians. Of course, last time Kypro went to Bosnian soil, worked out pretty damn well!
    • By Omonoia9
      Hooray, no conflicting emotions here. The ethniki are off to Tallinn to visit Estonia. Need to keep the pace with another win.

      Greece's Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign begins with a away match against FIFA's newest member Gibraltar on 6 September 2016 at the Estádio Algarve in Portugal.

      Greece not qualifying for the UEFA Euro 2016 finals tournament in France could work in their favor in qualification for the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup. The players get a proper off-season break. Complacency will not creep into the squad after being brought back down to earth in Euro 2016 qualifying.
