Greece Hits Embarrassing New Low as it Fails to Win Over Lowly Liechtenstein



The Greek National Team hit rock bottom on Sunday evening in a deserted Athens Olympic Stadium as it conceded a 1-1 draw against lowly Liechtenstein for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Liechtenstein, whose population of 38,000 would comfortably fit inside the stadium, had lost their previous 19 European and World Cup qualifiers, a run stretching back to a 1-1 draw with Moldova in June of 2015.

Greece was leading 1-0 thanks to a 33rd minute goal from Giorgos Masouras, but the hosts failed to get a second goal to kill off the game.

And they were punished five minutes from time, with Greece conceding a late equalizer, with Dennis Salanovic catching the Greek defense out on the break.

It was Liechtenstein’s very first goal in the qualifying stages for the European Championships in 2020, and it earned them their first point in the group stage.

Greece, which missed both the Euro 2016 and the last World Cup, are fifth in the six-team Group J, with five points, while Liechtenstein remained at the very bottom with one, and a goal difference of minus 18.
