Greece narrowly beat Kosovo 2-1 in Sunday’s UEFA Nations League match.
It is recalled last month, head coach of the Greek National Football Team (Εθνική Ομάδα ποδοσφαίρου), John van ‘t Schip, selected his squad.
The presence of Kostas Fortounis in midfield and of Efthymis Koulouris in attack improved Greece’s creativity, while Dimitris Limnios gave it some more speed at the flanks.
With barely two minutes on the clock Fortounis sliced the ball across the box to Limnios and the PAOK striker scored with his second effort, after his first was palmed away by the Kosovo keeper.
Then five minutes after the interval the ball fell from the sky (from a Dimitris Giannoulis high ball) to the Kosovo box and the path of substitute Dimitris Siovas and he controlled the ball before unleashing a left-foot volley for 2-0.
In the 82nd minute, Bernard Berisha scored Kosovo’s consolation goal with a sideways bicycle kick.
With this victory, Greece is at the top of League C Group 3 (with 4 points) together with Slovenia.
The next game is at home against Moldova in October.
