In another close match in which every little detail could decide the winner of the match-up, Greece and Turkey played yet another draw, 1-1. However, due to scoring more goals while being away, Greece progressed to the next stage of qualifiers for the 2022 Futsal EURO to be held in Netherlands.

Greece took the lead near the end of the first-half thanks to a goal by Ntatis. Ntatis took control of a nice through pass and managed to get behind the goalkeeper Erkan Çınar to bag in a very important goal for Greece.

Although pushing for the entire second half and in the end having more shots toward the goal, Turkey did not manage to score a goal up until the last minute when Cem Keskin equalized after a 10m free-kick. Turks had few more shots towards the goal by the end, but Greeks withstood the pressure.

Greece will play in Group 3 of the next qualifiers stage, together with Azerbaijan, Slovakia and Moldova.
