The top two places have already been decided in Group B of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers with the rest of the teams now only playing for pride. Greece will be looking to end their campaign on a positive note when they take on Kosovo in their final Group fixture.
Qualifying from a group that includes Spain and Sweden was always going to be a long shot but Greece have put up a commendable fight. They are now out of contention for even the playoffs following a 1-0 defeat to Spain on Thursday.
Greece have lost just two matches in the qualifiers and up until that defeat to Spain, were in the mix to make at least the playoffs. They claimed a number of impressive results in the group, including a 2-1 victory over Sweden, who where top of the standings at the time.
Manager John van’t Schip will be targeting a similar performance in their final fixture on Sunday as the Greeks look to end their campaign on a high.
Kosovo have been the whipping boys of the group having claimed just one win from their seven matches so far. They have suffered five defeats in that run and are set to finish bottom of the group.
Primoz Gliha’s men were beaten 2-1 by Georgia in their previous qualifying fixture with Vedat Muriqi getting their only goal. They travel to Greece off the back of a 2-0 defeat to Jordan in a friendly on Thursday.
Goals have also been a problem for Kosovo, who have failed to score in two of their last three qualifying matches.
