Greece fought back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw in Bosnia after the hosts had Miralem Pjanic sent off in a pulsating Euro 2020 Group J qualifier on Tuesday.
Goals from Edin Višća and Miralem Pjanic in a powerful first-half display looked to have set the impressive Bosnians on their way to a second three-point haul in succession in a match where Greece struggled for long spells.
But Angelos Anastasiadis’ new-look team fought back through Kostas Fortounis’ penalty and then substitute Dimitris Kolovos, who headed it home with five minutes left to grab a point in a breathless finish.
The result left both sides with four points from two games, two behind the leader Italy, which thrashed Lichtenstein 6-0 at home, and one ahead of Finland, after their 2-0 win in Armenia.
The Armenians and Lichtenstein have earned zero points.
Greece’s next qualifier is a home clash with the Italians on June 8, while Bosnia will face Finland away on the same day.
