Georgia outpaced Greece 4-2 in the penalty shootout (regulation time 0-0) on Tuesday evening to qualify for the Euro Championship for the first time in its history.

The knock-out qualifier played before a sold-out crowd at Tbilisi’s Boris Paichadze National Stadium was faced-paced and exciting, with everything included in 120 minutes of play except for a goal.

Had they advanced the Greek men’s team would have returned to an international tournament after the World Cup of 2014.

The feisty Georgia side will join Turkey, Portugal and the Czech Republic in Group F at the European Championship in Germany this coming June.

Georgia and Greece were participating in the playoff final after scoring victories over Luxembourg and Kazakhstan, respectively.
