The Greek National Team returned to winning ways in Kosovo, defeating the home side 2-1 on Sunday in round two of the 2020/2021 UEFA Nations League.

With barely two minutes on the clock Kostas Fortounis sliced the ball across the box to Limnios and the PAOK striker scored with his second effort, after his first was palmed away by the Kosovo keeper.

Then, five minutes after the interval Dimitris Siovas unleashing a left-foot volley doubling Greece’s advantage.

Bernard Berisha scored Kosovo’s consolation goal eight minutes from time with a sideways bicycle kick.

With two rounds in the books, Greece and Slovenia lead the way with four points each, while Kosovo and Moldova are yet to get on the board.

The next two Nations League games for Greece will take place against Moldova (October 11) and Kosovo (October 14) at home respectively.
