Giorgios Karagounis
FACTFILE
Greece's Giorgios Karagounis
Born: 06/03/77
Club: Inter Milan
Position: Midfielder
Debut: 18/8/99 v El Salvador
Midfielder Karagounis has struggled to break into the Inter Milan team since moving from Panathinaikos in 2003.

Behind Uruguayan star Alvaro Recoba in the pecking order, he has endured a frustrating time on the sidelines.

Karagounis attracted interest from several Serie A clubs after shining for Panathinaikos in the Champions League.

He remains one of Greek football brightest talents, but his Euro 2004 build-up was blighted after a sending off against Portugal in late 2003.

Karagounis came to prominence as captain of the Greek squad which nearly won the 1998 Uefa Under-21 Championship.

And his competitive style of play often brings favourable comparisons with Greece legend Mimis Domazos.


Did you know? Karagounis scored from a direct free-kick for Panathinaikos against Manchester United in a Champions League match in 2000.
