:"Karagounis" redirects here. For the midfielder of Udinese, see Thanasis Karagounis.Giorgos Karagounis ( ) (born 6 March 1977 in Pyrgos, Greece) is a Greek footballer who currently plays for Panathinaikos . He is best remembered for scoring the first goal of UEFA Euro 2004, a very long range effort that helped his team to win the opening game of the tournament, in which the Greeks surprisingly emerged as champions.

His style of play combined with his rather small stature have earned him comparisons with the former Greek midfield star Mimis Domazos.

Giorgos Karagounis is also the cousin of professional football player Thanasis Karagounis who currently plays for Udinese.
