Bad Quality, Great Result

The Georgian national football team won the second match of Nations League over Latvia.

We are far from the opinion that the quality of the game was good but the Latvians played defensive football and the Georgians found it hard to do anything to their defense.

Georgia had some chances to score a goal but could not use them. At the end of the match 19-year-old forward Giorgi Chakvetadze earned a penalty and Tornike Okriashvili scored it.

The team of Vladimir Weiss has 6 points and Crusaders are leading the group.

Georgia will hold the next match against Andorra on October 13.
