The Greek national team experienced its first defeat in the Nations League in Cyprus with 1-0. The result does not change the data in the group, since the “blue and white” has mathematically secured the first place and promotion to the B’ division of the competition.

However, the team’s image in Larnaca caused concern for Gustavo Poget, as they appeared lukewarm and could not get the result they wanted, as in previous games.

In fact, the national team lost 19 games unbeaten on Cypriot soil, as reported by After the defeat on 27/11/1963 in a friendly by Cyprus, he had 10 wins and 3 draws with Cyprus, two wins with Finland, one win with Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Belgium. In other words, he had 16 wins and 3 draws in 59 years.

Besides, this was the first time that Cyprus defeated Greece in an official competition, since Greece had 5 victories. Also, counting the official friendlies, Cyprus defeated Greece after 21 years (2001) and after 59 years on Cypriot soil (1963).

Beyond the statistics, the National Team lost the opportunity to maintain the undefeated record and continue its upward trend in the FIFA Ranking, while competitively it showed blocking when it found itself behind in the score. The absence of Giakoumakis and Pavlidis in the attack was evident, with Poget needing to work a lot in taking advantage of the opportunities in view of the continuation.

On Tuesday, Greece welcomes Northern Ireland in Rizoupoli, where the victory is now more imperative, to get the national reaction.
