Vangelis Pavlidis | This 22-year-old striker looks set to be a benchmark for his national team. He is a strong first touch finisher, signed last summer by AZ Alkmaar after two very good seasons with Willem II and has scored goals in these qualifiers.

Kosovo: Surprise

The Kosovo team is a country with little history in soccer and this year had the opportunity to reach its first World Cup finals, however, the Kosovars will once again be left wanting, with only four points from one win, one draw and five defeats, they are in last place in their group and practically eliminated. However, Kosovo will want to close these playoffs in a good way and upset the Greeks' plans. Kosovo has just lost a friendly match against Jordan by a score of 0-2.

Greece: For the playoffs

The Greek national team coached by John Van't Ship, does not want to suffer another defeat in this FIFA date and last Thursday they faced the current leader of the group, Spain, where they could not achieve at least a draw and the match ended with a 0-1 victory for the Spanish team. In the 4 previous rounds, their results were mixed: they have two wins, one loss and one draw. Currently, the Greeks are in third place in the playoffs, which will be played in March of next year. They have accumulated nine points from two wins, three draws and two defeats.
