Our football match prediction:
Greece failed to qualify for the Euro 2016 finals and it is more than obvious that they will fight tooth and nail in order to book their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The Greeks have been impressive in their qualifying group so far, with the team beating the likes of Gibraltar, Cyprus and Estonia in the process. Michael Skibbe’s men are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in Group H and they are after their third straight clean sheet. However, Sunday’s football game against Bosnia will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts and they certainly be happy with one point from the match. The Balkan Dragons recorded a routine 2-0 win over Cyprus in their third group game and, taking everything into account, the two teams should share the spoils at Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki in Piraeus on Sunday evening.
Highligted Player (Mensur Mujdza):
Mensur Mujdza is a product of Zagreb’s youth school. Mujzda continued playing for the capital club at senior level and he made 136 league appearances for the Whites. In June, 2009 he signed a contract with Freiburg and he has been playing for the Bundesliga outfit ever since. Mujdza became the vice-captain of the team for the 2015/2016 season. He was born on 28 March, 1984 in the capital of Croatia and, as a result, he played for Croatia U20 and U21 teams in the past. Nonetheless, seeing that his family is from Doboj, Bosnia he decided to play for Bosnian national team at senior level. Mujdza made his Bosnia debut against Qatar on 10 August, 2010. He started the match, but he did not score on his debut for the national team. The Bosnia international is a right back, but he is capable of playing as a right winger as well. Mujdza’s contract with Freiburg expires on 30 June, 2017.
Highlighted Team (Greece):
Former European champions Greece played their first official match on April 7, 1929, with the team suffering a heavy 4-1 loss to Italy in Athens. The Greeks booked their place at the FIFA World Cup finals in 1994 for the first time ever, but they failed to impress at the showpiece tournament in United States of America. The Galanolefki were eliminated in the group stages of the 2010 FIFA World Cup as well, but they made it to the knockout stages of the tournament in Brazil four years later. However, the Greeks were more than unfortunate not to book their place in the quarter-finals as they were beaten by Costa Rica on penalties. However, Greece did remarkably well to win the 2004 European Championship and that is considered the national team’s biggest success. Otto Rehhagel outplayed the likes of France and Czech Republic in the knockout stages to set up a meeting with hosts Portugal in the title game. Thanks to Angelos Charisteas’ goal 12 minutes into the second half Greece won the European Championship.
