Another late goal proved costly for Lubo Satka's Slovakia in their European Under-19 Championship qualifier against Greece

Slovakia under-19s once again conceded a late goal to end their hopes of qualifying for the European Championship finals.
Lubo Satka's side knew that three points against Greece on Sunday would see them through to the next stage despite falling victim to a stoppage time equaliser in their last match with Albania.
And after 72 minutes they led 3-1 through Matu Bero's second-half hat-trick.
But Anastasios Donis pulled a goal back before, in the last minute of normal time, Epaminondas Pantelakis levelled to send the Greeks through at Slovakia's expense.
