Ananidze’s beautiful goal in Georgia-Austria qualifying match
06 September, 2016
On September 5, Georgian National Football Team held their first qualifying match for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, against Austria and lost 1-2.


The guests began actively and during the first minutes had several good opportunities to open the score. They did finally, on 16 minutes, when Alaba took the free kick and Martin Hinterreger, unmarked, scored with a header.

Georgia could equalize in 10 minutes, in similar situation. After free kick, Aleko Amisulashvili was left alone with the ball,
5-6 meters in front of the goal, but his kick went over the bar. After that, Jaba Jigauri and Jano Ananidze had good chances to score, but Jigauri’s shot was dealt with by the Austrian keeper and Jano Ananidze kicked wide.

3 minutes before the break Austrians scored their second goal, when Marco Arnautovic crossed from the left and Mark Janko scored with another header.

In the beginning of the second half, Janko could score another one, but his shot went wide.

On 65 minutes, Vako Kazaishvili hit the post and after 4 minutes Jano Ananidze failed to take advantage of another good opportunity.

Jano score his and Georgia’s only goal on 78 minutes, when he hit from about 30 meters and the Austrian keeper was unable to deal with the perfectly curved ball. Ananidze's goal was met with emotional commentary by one of the hispanic commentators, who, after seeing the beautiful goal, could not hide his amazement.

During the remaining 15 minutes Georgia had more chances, but the score remained the same.

Georgia began the new qualifying round with the defeat and the next game will be held in Ireland, on October 6.
