Greece stuns France, ending unbeaten run in Euro 2024 qualifiers with a 2-2 draw

Posted : 22 November 2023
France's unblemished journey in the Euro 2024 qualifiers was disrupted as Greece held them to a gripping 2-2 draw, shattering their hope of ending with a flawless record. Following their landslide victory over Gibraltar, Les Bleus encountered a formidable challenge in Athens where Randal Kolo Muani seized an opportune moment just before halftime, only to witness Greece swiftly turn the tide with a rapid double strike. Yet, Youssouf Fofana emerged as France's savior, rescuing them from a precarious position.
At the Agia Sophia Stadium in Athens, France's midfielder #19 Youssouf Fofana (C) jubilantly celebrated alongside teammates after securing his team's second goal during the UEFA Euro 2024 Group B qualifier against Greece, culminating in a hard-fought 2-2 draw that concluded France's otherwise flawless campaign in Group B.
The French aspirations of an immaculate Euro 2024 qualification journey were dashed by Greece in the final showdown of Group B. Despite Antoine Griezmann's near-miss opportunity 33 minutes into the game and Olivier Giroud's setup for Randal Kolo Muani just before halftime, Greece seized momentum, drawing level with Anastasios Bakasetas and surging ahead through Fotis Ioannidis shortly after the break.
France's hope persisted as Youssouf Fofana delivered a masterclass 15 minutes from the final whistle, unleashing a breathtaking long-range strike that left Odisseas Vlachodimos stunned, restoring parity for Les Bleus. Despite relentless efforts, France narrowly missed a winner twice, with Kingsley Coman's deflected cross striking the post and Kylian Mbappe's explosive effort denied by Vlachodimos's fingertips, ultimately conceding their first points in the Euro 2024 qualifiers to a resilient Greece.
