Late goals from Gavin Whyte and Josh Magennis give Northern Ireland hope of staying away from bottom of Nations League Group C2.
However, despite the win over Kosovo, the visitors could expect a positive result in Greece as one in three teams are eliminated from the relegation games.
Kosovo are a point ahead of Northern Ireland and their opponents Cyprus, with Greece’s place at the top of the group the only guarantee of a place in the finals.
The team finishing last in the group will join Gibraltar, Belarus and Lithuania in the play-outs in March 2024 to determine the two teams relegated to the bottom division of the Nations League.
Here’s everything you need to know before playing.
When and where is it?
The match between Greece and Northern Ireland kicks off at 19:45 BST on Tuesday 27 September at the Georgios Kamaras Stadium in Athens, Greece.
How can I view it?
Viewers in the UK can watch the game live on FreeSports, with coverage starting at 19:15 BST. Subscribers can stream the game through Premier Player.
Georgios Giakoumakis and Petros Mantalos are back in contention for Gus Poyets Greece after serving a one-game ban in Saturday’s loss to Cyprus. Youthful centre-back Konstantinos Koulieraki was an unused substitute in that game but could make his debut when he shows up in Athens, while England-based full-backs Kostas Tsimikas and George Baldock could return to the crosses of a defensive four.
Conor McMenamin was initially withdrawn from the Northern Ireland squad due to a “historic social media video” but has now traveled to Greece although it is unclear if he will be considered for selection. It follows the removal of Kyle Lafferty after Kilmarnock launched an investigation into an alleged sectarian remark made by their forward.
Jonny Evans is expected to earn his 100th cap and is a likely starter. Stuart Dallas remains Northern Ireland’s main absentee as the Leeds provider continues his recovery from a serious leg injury sustained at the end of last league season.
Greece XI: Vlachodimos; Baldock, Mavropanos, Hatzidiakos, Tsimikas; Mantalos, Siopis, Kourbelis; Bakasetas, Giakoumakis, Masoura
Northern Ireland XI: Peacock Farrell; McNair, Evans; Flanagan, Lewis; Whyte, Davis, Evans, Saville, Ferguson; magenta
Northern Ireland 16/5
