Matchday: Portugal Seeks Group Lead in Nations League

A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Thursday:

NATIONS LEAGUE

Portugal can take sole possession of the Group 2 lead in the top tier of the Nations League with a home win against the Czech Republic. The two countries are tied with four points each after two matches. Portugal opened with a draw at Spain then routed Switzerland 4-0 with two goals by Cristiano Ronaldo. The Czechs defeated Switzerland 2-1 before drawing 2-2 with Spain. Last-place Switzerland will look to rebound from its opening losses when it hosts third-place Spain. In the second-tier League B, Norway will try to stay at the top in its group when it hosts Slovenia, while Serbia is at Sweden. In League C, Greece hosts Cyprus, Northern Ireland visits Kosovo and Georgia is at North Macedonia.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
