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

The Greek National Team hit rock bottom on Sunday evening at a deserted Athens Olympic Stadium as it conceded an 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 2015.

Greece were 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 as Greece conceded a late equalizer, with Dennis Salanovic catching the Greek defence out on the break.

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

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

GROUP J STANDINGS

Italy, 18 points
Finland, 12 points
