Greece is one step closer to winning its first-ever UEFA Nations League after defeating Northern Ireland 1-0 at Windsor Park this morning.

Greece’s decisive goal arrived in the 39th minute when the Northern Ireland midfield failed to track the forward run of Greek midfielder, Tasos Bakasetas.

When Dimitris Limnios played the ball inside from the right, Bakasetas had far too much time and space on the edge of the box as he controlled the ball well and planted a fine low strike wide of Bailey Peacock-Farrell and into the far corner.

Greece are now set to play Kosovo on June 5 in their second League C Group 2 match. Northern Ireland will face Cyprus, who were defeated 0-2 in their opener against Kosovo.
