Greece U-19 goes to Czech Republic

Greece is the team that passes Group 5 of the qualifying rounds and goes to the finals in Czech Republic.The finals will be played from 14th to 26th of July.

We lost from Moldavia(2-1) in the first day and then won Holland(2-1) and Russia(3-1) to top the groups table.
Ninis was the best for us (scouter from big European team were watching after him).Also Paulis was very good and scored the most for us.

Possible opponents in the finals:Spain,Hungary,Bulgary,Germany that have already passed the groups and Czech Republic as they enter the tournament as hosts.
Two more teams will pass from the qualifying groups.

Revenge time for us against Spain?:smileani:

Congrats folks.

On paper, we actually had a pretty good team but Ninis


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

If it were for the men NT's that group would be insane.
England goes through from a group with Poland,Belarus and Serbia with 2 wins and a draw.
Italy goes through from a group with Sweden,France and Switzerland with 3 wins.Fernando Forestieri and Stefano Okaka are their most recognizable players.
Czech's are the hosts so they are gonna have their crowd in every match.

Bouzanis picks Greece over Australia

Talented Greek-Australian goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis, who is currently at Liverpool, has committed his future to playing national team football with Greece, according to reports.

The 17-year-old had been the subject of a tug-of-war between Greece and Australia, having represented both countries at youth level.

It had been suggested that Bouzanis would be called up to the Olyroos, the Australian squad for the Beijing Olympics, as a way of convincing him to remain loyal to the country he was born in.

But the Sydney-born youngster has apparently written to the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) and informed them that he wants to play for Greece.

He will go straight into the squad for the U19 European Championships, which take place in the Czech Republic between July 16 and 26.

Bouzanis has played for the Joeys (Australian under-17s) but also played for Greece's U19s against Slovakia In February.

Speaking in March, his agent Terry Palapanis said that Bouzanis is not yet ready to make his mind up.

"He'll play for Greece and Australia until he's more mature to make a decision,'' said Palapanis.

"At the moment, Dean's main focus is on becoming third choice in the first team - he wants to prevent Rafa Benitez from going out and purchasing another keeper.''

Bouzanis joined Liverpool from Sydney FC last summer and his former coach Jim Frazer urged Australian footballing authorities to ensure that Greece do not steal Bouzanis from under their noses.

"We must tie him down,'' Frazer told The Daily Telegraph in Australia.

"I've been around for over 30 years and he's the best young keeper I've ever seen. If we lose Dean that would be a disaster.

"He's special and we should get him in as soon as we can. He's got the X-factor that comes along every now and then.''

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has apparently said that Bouzanis is the best U20 keeper in the world.

Under FIFA rules, Bouzanis is free to represent both countries until he plays at a senior level.

Greece played a scoreless draw with host nation Czech Republic.
Nikos Bampaniotis made some spectacular saves. Ninis receive his marching orders(RED CARD) in the 60th minutes.
2 games,,2 draws. Things are looking healthy for a semi final berth.
We see how the other match,which will be played in about an hours time- The Poms vs The Spagetti munchers.
We have the Poms in our final pool match.

Just to let you all know,,,top 3 nations in this tournament qualify for the World Youth Championships in 2009. WHich will be held in Egypt.
