Greece got a big 3-1 win at home over Romania in the first leg of this playoff. Greece has promised that they won’t sit back, happy to play defense and try to cling to the result. Greece will come out playing like this individual game is one they need to win to advance to the World Cup.
“Although we are ahead in the tie we still need to go to Romania with a focused mindset as everything will be decided then. Nothing is over yet,” Greece coach Fernando Santos said, via ESPN FC.
“We are at half-time in the tie so there is still plenty of work to do and we’ll have to show the same appetite and concentration in the second leg, so we don’t throw away what we have built on in Athens. Our focus will be to keep a clean sheet because if we concede an early goal it will create problems for us.”
