Greece defeats Kosovo to win the Nations League Group

[Intime]

Greece defeated Kosovo 2-0 in Boros on Sunday, scoring a perfect 12 points in four UEFA Nations League games and taking the lead in the Division C pool.

The goals of Kostas Giakoumakis and Petros Mantaros settled the match against major Greek rivals in the group. Greece, on the other hand, was dominant throughout the match and needed to score more points.

Greece enjoyed most encounters, and even if Kosovo had the ball, the Greek pressure was unbearable for the visitor.

Gus Poyet’s players didn’t create many scoring opportunities, but goals were always coming and were achieved on the 71st. Petros Mantalos sent a winding cross from the left into the box, and the towering figure of Musk Makis pointed the ball at the net and scored a goal.

Kosovo tried to react, but the Greeks weren’t denied a fourth clean sheet in many Nations League games.

Eventually, they added a second on the last kick of the game, and Mantalos scored on a counterattack after Kosovo’s last groove effort.

Greece is now mathematically at the top of the group, making the remaining two games between Cyprus and Northern Ireland academic.
