2014 was a year full of ambivalent emotions for the Greek national team. From its remarkable 2014 World Cup journey to sitting at the bottom of Group F for the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
It’s been more than a decade that the Greek team has performed so poorly and as a result not only a spot in the next big soccer tournament is at risk but most importantly, the fans’ admiration has fallen at a record low.
Taking advantage of the festive season and the people’s sympathetic nature during these days, the Greek internationals decided to upload a video in an attempt to reconcile. After all, the tragic recent events have left fans wondering if the golden era of Greek football has ended and a new one of misery and depression has began, similar to the status of the country as a whole.
