Argentina trip crucial for Greece says Charitonidis

June 8, 2005 – Despite coming off two straight defeats at the hands of Pool C leaders Poland last weekend, some injury problems and a long away journey to Argentina, Greece coach Kostas Charitonidis has his sight firmly set on two victories for this weekend’s round three of the Intercontinental Round of the 2005 World League.

Two wins will help Greece, who have an overall record of two wins-two defeats, keep in touch with the undefeated rivals in the group Poland and help keep their heads in front of both Argentina and final round hosts Serbia and Montenegro, who have one win a piece.

"Despite the problems that we have, we will go to Argentina to play well and take victories in both matches,” Charitonidis said. “There are no excuses and we will fight with all our forces for the good of the national team."

Charitonidis has made two changes to last week’s matches for the trip to Argentina with his tallest player at 2.05m, 25-year-old Andreas Andreadis replacing Theodoros Chatziantoniou while Georgios Stefanou comes in for Tontor-Zlatko Baev.

Greece’s first match against Argentina in Buenos Aires is on Friday followed by the second match on Sunday.
