Greece a step closer to Euro 2024 qualification

·

Greece triumphed 2-0 over Ireland in Dublin on Friday and will host the Netherlands on Monday in the hopes of qualifying for the Euro 2024.

Held at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Greece’s team had a tight defence and prolific offence against Ireland on Friday.

After absorbing the hosts’ pressure, the Greeks enjoyed more possession, started playing their own game and got to score a spectacular goal by Giorgos Giakoumakis.

In the first-half injury time another great team effort involving Petros Mantalos and Tasos Bakasetas had Giorgos Masouras find himself with the ball inside the box for his sixth goal in the last seven games.

The second half went by with less action.

Greece now has 12 points from six games and will now host the Dutch at Nea Filadelfia on Monday to try and clinch the second spot in the group with a victory.
