The Greek U21 National Team was handed a heavy 4-0 defeat to Israel for Euro 2017 Qualifying. The loss mathematically eliminates Greece from the Euro 2017 Finals.

Greece needed all three points away to Israel in their 9th Euro 2017 qualifier in Group 4 to keep their minute chances of second place in the group alive. Unfortunately, Israel dominated the game and came away with an easy 4-0 victory. Altman opened the score in the 27th minute and Gozlan added a second before the break. In the opening 15 minutes of the second half, Israel scored twice to go up 4-0 and put the game to bed.

Antonis Nikopolidis' side once again put on a poor showing in qualifying. Greece has 10 points from 9 matches and sit second to last in Group 4 only ahead of Liechtenstein. Greece's final qualifier will be on Monday at home to Hungary, who is also eliminated, with Greece playing for prideful result.
