Greece – Serbia
both NT are going trough hard days..
Greece in bad form, already lost all chances to qualify for Euro 2016, after the lose in last match from the Faroe Island (0-1) on home ground coach was sacked, atmosfhere in club is bad and they are searching for new selector, this friendly match is not importat for them.
best players are currently not in squad.. Sokratis(df 54/1 Dortmund), Holebas(df 27/1 Roma), K. Papadopoulos(df 16/4 Bayer), Tachtidis(mf 9/0 Verona), Katsouranis(mf 114/10 Pune), Fetfazidis(mf 21/3 Genoa), Salpingidis(att 82/13 Paok), Samaras(att 81/9 WBA), Mitroglou(att 38/8 Oly) are all out
Serbia’s coach Advocat left the club because of poor results, now Serbia will be lead by Curicic(u21 coach). They will miss Kolarov, Nastasic, Bisevac, Kuzmanovic and Tadic, but still Serbia have plenty of talented players who could replace them. Only question is motivation and confidence at this moment..
