Player Profile

Sifakis was an unused squad member at the 2005 Confederations Cup but had to wait five years to make his international debut, which came against Luxembourg last October. Greece won that match 2-1, with Sifakis beaten by an Avraam Papadopoulos own goal.

He began his career with OFI Crete, making over 100 appearances for the club before joining Olympiakos in 2007.

Sifakis was unable to dislodge Euro 2004 veteran Antonios Nikopolidis as their first choice, and moved on to Aris Salonika in 2008. He helped the club reach the final of the Greek Cup this season.
