Lykogiannis Gets First Call-up to National Team
According to Sturm Graz, Babis Lykogiannis has been called up to the Men’s Greek National Team for the first time in his career.
Babis Lykogiannis will be the newest addition to the Greek National Team. The 23-year old left back has played with all of Greece’s Youth National Teams and has been called up to the Men’s National Team for the first time in his career.
Although Michael Skibbe has not officially announced the roster for the upcoming qualifier against Bosnia, Sturm Graz posted on social media the Hellenic Football Federation's official document inviting Lykogiannis to the National Team.
The player stated on Sturm Graz’s website “I have always wanted to play for the National Team and we have a very important game in June against Bosnia and I will give it my all.”
Lykogiannis has had a stellar season in Austria with Sturm Graz having made 35 appearances for the club while scoring three goals and giving three assists. He was also named to the Austrian Bundesliga’s Starting XI for the first half of the season.
He will now be given the opportunity to show his talents with the National Team in a time of need as Greece will be without the likes of Georgios Tzavellas against Bosnia due to a suspension.
Lykogiannis will be the second new addition to the National Team after it was reported that Christos Donis will also be called up to the Men’s team for the first time in his career.
