There have been so many incidents of violence during the international matches in Greece and Stelios Giannako poulos is really worried about it.
According to Giannakopoulos, if it goes on like this, his nation might be denied the opportunity of hosting too many international games in future.
The Football in Greece is actually in a pretty good shape talent wise. In World Cup which had taken place just a few months back, they had been brilliant against the top teams and if not for some lack of concentration in the penalty shootouts versus Costa Rica, they would have found themselves in the quarter finals there.
But, for a Football team to develop and to go from strength to strength, it’s important that the situation back home remains good and the players are provided peace to focus on their game, but, that is not happening currently and that’s why, after the World Cup, it has been a little bit of a dip for Greece in terms of their performances.
The players are the same and they all are good enough, but, with so much of violence in the country and it affecting the games, it has taken its toll.
Giannakopoulos wants the federation to do something about it soon and he also says he is ready to offer any kind of help that is needed. Read more »

Claudio Ranieri spent 4 months in charge of the Greece national football team before being sacked due to the string of defeats that the national side experienced after losing against Romania, Northern Ireland and Faroe Islands. All of these defeats have placed Greece on the bottom spot of Group F in the 2016 Euro’s group stages.
The former coach of the Peruvian national team Sergio Markarián was elected as the new coach of the Greek side. After it was officially confirmed and announced that Markarian was going to be the successor of Ranieri, the Uruguayan coach expressed his joy concerning his new managerial job as Markarian said:
“Being given the responsibility of coaching the Greece national team is a great honor for me. I would like to thank the federation for choosing me. We have a tough task ahead, but I believe in my ability and in the potential of Greek football. We will all do our best to achieve our aims, starting with our upcoming encounter in Hungary.’’ Read more »
