The unstoppable Dimitris Giannoulis
The people have spoken. Dimitris Giannoulis and his stunning run against Benfica at the Toumba is the winner of the PAOK TV Play of the Month award for September according to your votes.
There are those mazy runs that become etched in the mind forever. Ronaldinho’s famous dribble past Sergio Ramos Bernabéu, Lionel Messi’s amazing goal against Athletic Bilbao, Dennis Bergkamp’s dribble past Nikos Dabizas, and Diego Maradona’s waltz through England’s defence, and so on and so forth.
In the minds of PAOK supporters, what Dimitris Giannoulis did in the match against Benfica in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers could easily enter this category.
Mr. No Brakes gave the Portuguese team’s defenders nightmares every time he got the ball on the night. But the highlight was when he picked up the ball well inside his own half and then pressed the accelerator, surging past the visitors’ players before teeing up Andrija Zivkovic with a measured pass so that PAOK could score a second goal and essentially lock up qualification for the playoffs.
And in the poll for the PAOK TV Play of the Month for September, Giannoulis received 53,78% of the vote to clinch the individual award.
In second place was Stefan Schwab’s exceptional pass in the match against Besiktas for the Double-headed Eagle’s first goal, while in third place was Zivko Zivkovic for his stunning second-half save in the match against Krasnodar in Russia from Vanderson.
