Looking for Ties to Greece in the World Cup?

It’s upsetting that Greece is not in the World Cup this year; heart-breaking actually. And the two runner-up teams I root for, USA and Italy, aren’t in the cup either! So this made me dig for some Greek connections that I could possibly root for. Here they are…


  • Dimitris Petratos, Greek origins


  • Am Warda, player on PAOK


  • Karim Amsarifard, player on Olympiacos
  • Ehsan Hajsafi, player on Olympiacos
  • Masoud Shojaei, player on AEK


  • Aleksandar Prijovic, player on PAOK


  • Head Coach Fernando Santos, former head coach of Greek clubs and the Greek National Soccer Team
