Great game from him yesterday.

(1:27) Great movement and Dribble from a wide area, as well as the pass which send the ball centrally inside the box, which resulted in the first goal.
(2:12) Very good Long-Pass from him which almost resulted into a goal.
(2:46) He hit the post.
(3:18) Really good goal, and finishing from such a difficult angle.
(4:10) Another good shot from him, which was saved by the Doxa Keeper.

Height: 174 (+2) cm
Weight: 66 (+2) kg

According to Official APOEL website: http://apoelfc.com.cy/nqcontent.cfm?a_n ... ayerid=104


Side: B

In his first season, he played only in the right side of midfield. However, this season Fink prefers him on the left so that he can cut inside and Vs Olympiacos in the Cup he played full 90 minutes as LMF.


Header Accuracy: 69 (+2)
Dribble Accuracy: 77 (+2)
Place Kicking: 72 (+2)
Swerve: 75 (+3)
Explosive Power: 77 (+2)

I would personally upgrade some of his technical stats, as well as his Heading(for a relatively short guy he was scoring a good amount of headers in the Second team), and his Agility(he is definitely agile enough to deserve mid-greens, he even shows it in the short video above).
He showed that he has good close control of the ball, while he is really good at crossing-FKs and corners.


Body Balance: 70 (+5)
Kicking Power: 76 (+3)

I still don't believe that he is strong enough to play deep in midfield, but in comparison to newly updated APOEL players' sets, he isn't weaker than, for example, Alex Konstantinou. He is near Alex's standards, maybe a bit stronger than him.
About Shot Power, you can see in the video, he has decent Shot Power.

Papafotis is playing a lot in recent weeks.
When Thorsten FInk first came he watched him at training and he was impressed, and said that he counts a lot on him.
Surely he deserves update, according to what I wrote above.

Joined _cyp Doxa Katokopias on-loan for the Season.
Don't know what to make of him until today... He seems like he has decent quality and technique from a young age, but he had been around for ages at APOEL Nicosia, without being given a proper chance to be established in the first-team. Just 3 or 4 appearances per Season, mainly as a substitute in the League and as a starter in some Cup matches. It would be interesting to see if he can be a starter at a First-Division team like Doxa Katokopias.

He had been great this Season in his loan spell at Doxa Katokopias, a club that is doing well this Season, scoring 3 goals and assisting at least another 4.
Not exactly an automatic starter for them this Season, but he does play in almost all of their matches, either as a starter or as a substitute from the bench.
He plays mainly as an AMF this Season, and sometimes out-wide, mainly as a LMF. Currently, he is less of a box-to-box Central-Midfielder than he had been sometimes in the past during his teenage years at APOEL.
His current contract with APOEL is expiring in the Summer, and according to reports other big Cypriot clubs are having a look at him to bring them on their squad for Free. In my opinion, although he had done great at play-making for a mid-table club like Doxa Katokopias, his relative lack of pace and physicality for his position, would make it difficult for him to find a long-term position in APOEL's team. He would probably be better-off to move to some other big clubs of lesser quality where he would have more opportunities to play. Time will tell, as well as if he would improve in his physicality. He does look slightly stronger than a couple of years ago, but still far from great.

Attack: 70 (+4)
Defence: 45 (-9)
Balance: 70 (+1)
