Theofanis Gekas

One or two of the senior members of the Greece squad decided to call time on their international careers when talismanic Otto Rehhagel left his post as national team coach following the 2010 World Cup finals, with Gekas one of those announcing he had played his final game in Greek blue.

Yet the bug of playing for his country had not quite left this prolific international marksman, who was in unstoppable form as he scored ten goals during the qualifying push for the World Cup of two years ago and after some persuasive words from new Greece boss Fernando Santos, he is back in the fold.

Listing Larissa, Kallithea, Panathinakos, Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt among his former clubs, Gekas has the nous to deal with anything that may be thrown at him this summer. His goal in the qualifying win against Croatia last October was crucial in getting his country into these finals.
