Greece welcome Honduras to the Toumba Stadium on Sunday for an international friendly game in the midst of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Galanolefki got their campaign off to an encouraging 1-1 draw against former world champions Spain on Thursday.

Anastasios Bakasetas scored a penalty to cancel out Alvaro Morata's opening goal as the visitors put up a stubborn performance in Granada.

Ahead of their next qualifying game against minnows Georgia, John van 't Schip's side play an inconsequential friendly. However, it can be a chance for his key players to get a rest.

Meanwhile, this match gives Honduras further preparation for the upcoming CONCACAF Nations League and the Gold Cup.

They're coming off the back of a 1-1 draw against Belarus, with Alex Lopez canceling out Pavel Savistski's opening goal for the hosts.

Having played only three games since the start of 2020, La Bicolor face an important calendar year ahead of them. Two major competitions will be followed by a series of World Cup qualifiers to be played in the coming months.
