Greece took home a breezy 2-0 win over Moldova during Sunday’s Nations League match at the Olympic Stadium.
The Greek national team remains at the top of its group’s standings (League C), climbing to seven points from three games and sharing the top spot with Slovenia.
The game took a while to warm up before the first goal was scored three minutes into the first half overtime.
Shortly after Moldovan defender Veaceslav Posmac was sent off the pitch for a pull back on Vangelis Pavlidis in the area, Greek forward Tasos Bakasetas scored from the penalty spot.
John van ‘t Schip’s front did not let up, snapping up a second goal quick into the second half.
Midfielder Petros Mantalos brought the score to 2-0, after trapping a pass over the top from Bakasetas and drove the ball into the corner.
Goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos also denied Moldova’s chance at bringing its score up at all, blocking a penalty by Nicolae Milinceanu.
Greece will play Kosovo tomorrow morning at 5:45am for those hoping to catch the game in Australia, but fans will have to wait until 16 November until the next game against Moldova.
