What’s your bet? Will Greece be in Russia for the finals?
#Greece … they’re playing Croatia on Nov 9th, 2017 and Nov 12th, to go through to the #WorldCup 2018 in #Russia, then watch out for live coverage on Greek TV on those dates. #Croatia are favourites, but the Greeks are hugely competitive. Give them support especially if you are living in #Crete. You can bet your local kafeneio’s will be buzzing with excitement. First date in Zagreb, the return leg in Piraeus (Athens).
What are your odds for Greece’s chances in the last of the qualifier clashes? Do they match mine?

Ist leg clash in Zagreb (Nov 9), #Greece only had 38% possession of the ball against Croatia. Dismal play, admitted by the team manager afterwards. They went down to a 4-1 defeat.
2nd Leg (Nov 12) in Piraeus the Greeks held the Croats to a creditable 0 – 0, tied match. This tie was a better fight. Not overwhelming though in front of their home crowd. Croatia now goes through to the last 48 of the #WorldCup2018.
So sadly, Greece is out of the World Cup and won’t be going to Russia. :'(
