Limnios and Vrousai included in U21 squad
Ahead of two upcoming friendly matches against Slovakia and Montenegro, head coach of the under 21 Greek national team Antonis Nikopolidis has named his squad, including the likes of attackers Dimitris Limnios and Marios Vrousai in the side.
On March 22, the under 21 Greek national team will take on its Slovakian counterpart in Zilina, before hosting Montenegro at the Georgios Kamaras Stadium in Athens on March 26. Both matches are friendlies.
Earlier this week, Greece U21 manager Nikopolidis revealed his roster for the two friendly games, notably picking Limnios (PAOK) and Vrousai (Willem II). Vangelis Pavlidis, who has been in excellent form alongside Vrousai at Willem II in the Eredivisie, is also in the team.
Another interesting inclusion is talented FK Vojvodina attacking midfielder Nemanja Milojevic. Born in Athens, Milojevic has spent his entire career so far in Serbia, and he has previously played five matches for the under 19 Greek national side. Milojevic holds both Greek and Serbian citizenship.
