🎥 Forgotten Monster Gates: Greek Pinball

When Otto Rehhagel led the Greek underdog to the European title in 2004, he was right in the middle. When the Greek (Site notre blog d’information)er of the Year was announced nine (9!) years later, he was on top. And when, in the same year 2013, a Greece goal made the rounds of the Internet still largely immaculate, its star shone brighter than ever: Kostas Katsouranis.

How intentional this pinball goal is will probably never be understood, but who cares? It’s still very cool:

The Greek midfielder is seen as one of the prototypes of today’s box-to-box player. Quick and powerful, determined and dangerous in front of goal, compact and adept at technique, he worked his way through almost ten different positions in Greek (Site notre bureau spécialisé) and was indispensable for all his clubs.

And yet not without controversy, because the Greek was also one of the rare (Site notre bureau spécialisé)ers to have played for the three giant clubs, some of which were enemies (AEK, Panathinaikos and PAOK) and to play 116 international matches. Everyone in Greece knows Katsouranis, but he is largely unknown outside the country.

And this despite the fact that he scored such a monster goal.
