Greece head coach Matthew Ashill has announced a train-on squad for the October matches against Malta and Spain in European Championship C.
The winners will gain the final place in the 2016 European Qualifiers for the World Cup the following year, alongside Wales, Ireland, Serbia, Russia and Italy.
Further to the national side’s success in the Balkan Championship and European C, three new teams - taking the total to five - will play in the Greek Second Division Championship this season.
For the first time, all will face each other home and away as the Hellenic Federation looks to build greater opportunities, especially for the increasing number of new players attracted to the sport.
