Having scored 11 goals and 3 assists in 24 matches for Willem II in the Dutch league, Vangelis Pavlidis is tipped to start for the team, alongside Turkish Super League player Tasos Bakasetas.

Greece will face Slovenia on September 3, 2020.

How does the competition work?

UEFA’s newest national-team competition, the UEFA Nations League was was inaugurated in the 2018/19 season to replace friendlies with competitive matches, allowing nations to play against equally-ranked teams.

A new league structure was introduced after the first edition, comprising 16 teams in Leagues A, B and C and seven teams in League D. The four group winners of the top-ranked League A qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals.

The group winners in Leagues B, C and D will gain promotion. Those who finish bottom of the groups in Leagues A and B will be relegated. Two League C teams will be relegated to League D for the third edition of the competition in 2022/23. Those two teams are determined by play-offs (home and away) between the four fourth-ranked teams from each League C group.

The four group winners of League A qualify for the UEFA Nations League finals. The knockout tournament will be hosted by one of the quartet.
