Greece-Romania friendly match in football for the blind in Thessaloniki

With a "white" 0-0 draw, the friendly football match for the blind between the Greek men's national team and Romania ended, at the stadium of EAK Mikra, in Thessaloniki.
The friendly match took place as part of the preparation of the National Blind Men's Football Team, in view of its participation in the "Intercontinental Cup" (India 23/9-3/10).
It took place behind closed doors and was dedicated to the memory of the victims of the natural disaster and the 36-year-old Antonis, who drowned in the port of Piraeus. Before kick-off, a minute's silence was held in their memory and for the same reason, the players of both teams wore black armbands throughout the match.
The national team entered the first half somewhat frozen, trying to find a rhythm against a good team like Romania. They created some phases but could not score a goal. In the second part, the pace increased and with the changes made, all the players were used, the internationals managed to create phases and score a goal, in the last phase of the match, in the last seconds, but it was considered overdue as the match had ended.
The friendly match is considered the last test of the national football team for the blind, before departing for India, where they will face their current opponent.
