Georgios Giakoumakis It was the great novelty of the call of Greece for this last stop of selections. The Hellenic team was going to play for promotion in the Nations League with Slovenia and the coach Schip first turned to one of the fashionable men in the Eredivisie. He scored on his debut against Armenia but failed to do so in the decisive clash against Slovenia.
And is that Giakoumakis has 9 goals in the 9 games who has played in the Netherlands between the League and the Cup. After failing to exploit everything that was assumed in Greece (AEK Athens signed him but ended up giving him up twice to smaller teams), Venlo signed him this summer for 200,000 euros. And it is where he has managed to show all his qualities. We are before a powerful area striker, very difficult to move through the center-backs and a specialist in one-touch shots. He also has a good back game and doesn’t mind taking responsibility for penalties.
At 25, Giakoumakis, aspiring heirs to names such as Charisteas, Mitroglou or Samaras, is experiencing a true football maturity.
