Michael Skibe: We paid dearly for the poor match in Zagreb14-11-2017
Poor match in Zagreb is the only reason for Greece to drop out of qualifying for a World Cup, said national coach Michael Skibe. The German is categorical that he will continue to hold office because the Greeks have shown tremendous growth in the past 14 months. `It`s a sad day for us It`s hard for us to swallow the drop because it was at the cost of participating in a world championship but I will continue to work because I am pleased with the team`s progress over the past 14 months. 12 good matches but unfortunately we did not show this level in Zagreb and we paid dearly, `Skibe said. The German specialist stressed that the team did not help with the absences of Captain Vasilis Torosidis, Petros Mantalos and Christos Donis, as well as the punishment of Costas Manollas. These are four of the main players of the Greek national team. `This has influenced the chemistry of the team and we should not forget it, but we did play well this Sunday (Sunday) and we played the Croatians, as we have already said, we paid the price for the mistakes in Zagreb, and we should not allow such things at such a high level`added Greece`s breeder.
