Greece vs Spain 0-1 Highlights 2022 World Cup Qualifiers

After winning 1-0 in Greece, Spain has their World Cup qualification in their own hands going into the final round of games.

Luis Enrique’s team jumped ahead of previous Group B leaders Sweden, who lost 2-0 in Georgia earlier on Thursday.

In four previous meetings with Greece, Spain had never lost, and a penalty from Pablo Sarabia in the first half extended that record to four wins and one draw.

If they can avoid being defeated by Sweden on Sunday in Seville, they will qualify for Qatar 2022.

Against a well-organized Greece, the visitors dominated possession but created little early on.

On 21 minutes, the hosts thought they had taken the lead when Giorgos Masouras finished well after a Thanasis Androutsos throughball, but the Olympiakos forward was offside.

After Inigo Martinez was felled in the box by Dimitris Giannoulis following a corner, Spain was awarded a penalty, and Sarabia sent Odisseas Vlachodimos the wrong way to put ‘La Roja’ ahead.

The hosts, who needed a win to keep their qualification hopes alive, began to gamble a little more towards the end of the game, but Spain remained composed as they cruised to a crucial victory in Athens.
