EUROPE: World Cup – Qualifiers – Final (1st match)
Match start: 21:45 (GMT+1)
The culmination of the World Cup 2018 qualifiers for 8 best countries-participants that took the 2nd places in their groups had come. The forthcoming two matches will determine 4 teams that will go to Russia for the tournament. It is very important for Croatia to win at home arena with the most possible comfortable score as we all know that Greece is one of the greatest European football teams.
For the current generation of the Blazers the World Cup in Russia can become a swan song at the level of national teams. Such football players as Subašić, Modrić, Mandžukić, Rakitić, Perišić, Badelj are either over 30 years old or under 30 and their career is just decreasing. Croatia is facing the change of generation but now this national team under the supervision of Ante Čačić is one of the most interesting in European football. Croatia has spent imperfect qualification stage, having saved till the last moment the possibility of leaving the qualifiers.
But the national team from Greece had managed to grow-up and educate the new generation that hasn’t yet brought to the country any football achievements. During the qualifiers for the World Cup 2018 Greece had managed to stand up to Bosnia and lost only to Belgium. Michael Skibbe possesses quite interesting squad of football players who are able to demonstrate interesting football: Karnezis, Manolas, Sokratis, Retsos, Papadopoulos, Samaris, Fortounis and Mitroglou. Greece is very stubborn team with which it is difficult to fight to any national team.
During the first match both national teams will be afraid to make any fatal mistakes and to miss the World Cup 2018. And so we suppose that we can wait only for boring game in plan of scoring chances.
