Defensive midfielder Theo Zagorakis set the record in 2007.

Karagounis is one of three remaining players in the Greece squad from the winning team at Euro 2004.

The 35-year-old midfielder and his teammates have to beat leader Russia in their final Group A game to advance in the tournament, after losing 2-1 to the Czech Republic and drawing 1-1 with co-host Poland.

Coach Fernando Santos is missing first-choice goalkeeper Costas Chalkias and central defender Avraam Papadopoulos.
