Greek team AO Giannina play tiki taka football in vein of FC Barcelona finished with overhead kick.
The Greek national football team clearly has a great future, judging from the prowess and technical ability of the youth side of AO Giannina.
It is certainly a far cry from the disciplined set piece routines of the Greece team at Euro 2004, when their turgid football saw them described ahead of the final by Guardian journalist Barry Glendenning as “the only underdogs in history that everyone wants to see get beaten.”
This move comes straight from kickoff, and Giannina retain the ball throughout for 25 passes before one player pounces to score a stunning overhead kick.
Opposition side Star Ioannina barely know what hit them, but must have been severely demoralised after chasing shadows then picking the ball out of their net.
