International round-up: 90 minutes for Giannoulis in Greece draw

3 June 2021

Dimitris Giannoulis played 90 minutes of Greece's 1-1 with Belgium on Thursday evening.

Greece, who missed out on EURO 2020 qualification, deployed Giannoulis in an advanced role against Roberto Martinez's side, with Liverpool's Kostas Tsimikas playing in Giannoulis' usual left-back role.

Belgium took the lead through Thorgan Hazard in the first-half before Georgios Tzavellas equalised after the interval to earn Greece a share of the spoils.

Greece face one more friendly on Sunday when they play Norway in Malaga, Spain (5pm UK).

Earlier in the day, Adam Idah came off the bench to help Republic of Ireland come from behind and beat Andorra 4-1, also in a friendly.

Idah was introduced in the 66th minute with the score at 2-1 and his contribution helped Ireland run out confortable winners in the end.

Next up for Ireland is a visit to Hungary on Tuesday evening (7pm UK) when Idah's City teammates Andrew Omobamidele will hope to make his senior international debut after being left out of the matchday squad on Thursday.

In the early hours of Friday morning, Emi Buendia could make his Argentina debut as host Chile in a World Cup qualifier (1am UK).
