Interview with Sotiris Tabakos

The national team has two very crucial games ahead of it against Holland and Gibraltar. Alexander, do you think your chances of qualifying for Euro 2024 will increase if you get a positive result in Thursday’s match in Eindhoven?

It is a difficult period for the footballers after preparation and the first games. It’s time for us all to get together. In the training sessions we laid the foundations to be ready for the match against the Netherlands. As in the previous game against France, the demands are very high and our goal does not change. We go to Holland to get the three points. We know it will be difficult, we worked well in training and we all have to give 100%».

With France the team was very competitive, showing that they can get a result against any opponent. Do you think that the match against the Dutch will also be decided in the details?

At this level, the differences are very small. The preparation of the team plays an important role both competitively and psychologically. Our coach works on these areas. Every footballer must be absolutely ready for the match against the Netherlands».

The national team shows that it has entered the right path. There is a great atmosphere in the team, they are getting results and are claiming qualification to a final stage after ten years. Do you think it’s time for our representative band to return to a major event?

What I see is that the atmosphere in the team is very good. It hasn’t changed. There are great characters. What has changed in the National team is the discipline. I think this is a coach thing. We are very serious and disciplined in what we have to do on the field. I believe we can do it and be in the finals of Euro 2024 in Germany».
