Greece U-21’S Continue Perfect Run
UEFA U21 EURO 2019 QUALIFYING - GROUP 4 (MATCHDAY 4)
|San Marino U21||0 - 5||Greece U21|
Greece’s Under-21 side maintained their 100 per cent record with a fourth successive win in European Championship qualifying Group 1 on Sunday, putting on a five-star performance to thump San Marino 5-0 in Serravalle.
On the same night the full senior side qualified for the World Cup playoffs with a 4-0 win over Gibraltar, Antonis Nikopolidis’ young side also celebrated a big win of their own to do their country proud.
Goals from Zisis Karachalios (35), Efthymis Koulouris (43), Nikolas Vergos (73), Thanasis Androutsos (79) and Alexandros Katranis (81) completed a rousing victory for the rampant Greeks, who have 12 points and 14 goals from four matches, while conceding only once.
Croatia are three points behind in second place with nine points – but they have played a game less so also still have a 100 per cent record intact
Greece’s net challenge is the visit of Croatia in a mouth-watering top of the table clash on November 13 at the Toumba stadium in Thessaloniki.
