Greek Footballers Win Hearts of Turkish Neighbors

A Greek football side from the island of Lesvos were winners both on and off the pitch in a recent game against a neighboring Turkish squad.

Pallesviakos football club’s veteran team travelled to Ayvalik on Sunday for a friendly game  against Ayvalikgucu Belediyespor, running out eventual 3-2 winners.

But it was the Greek team’s delivery of aid packages for the Turkish district’s poor which really saw them crowned as champions.

Local charity workers thanked the Greek visitors for their generosity, leading to hopes of more friendly and respectful visits among these Aegean neighbors.
