Giannakis 'Ioannis' Okkas (Greek: Γιάννης Οκκάς; born 11 February 1977 in Larnaca) is a retired Cypriot football striker, who last played for Anorthosis Famagusta FC. He was also the captain of the Cyprus national football team for many years and he is the 2nd leading scorer of all time just behind Michalis Konstantinou, scoring in total 27 goals for Cyprus. With 106 national caps since 1997, Okkas has made more appearances for Cyprus than any other player in history.
He scored three goals in his side's failed attempts to qualify for the 2002 World Cup, and was also on target in Euro 2004's qualifying stage, notably against France, in which Cyprus lost 1–2, but with fine displays from Okkas, including a delicate chip that left French keeper Grégory Coupet completely stranded.
On 8 October 2010, Okkas reached 100 appearances with the Cyprus national football team against Norway in Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium in Larnaca. In the same match, he managed to score his 26th goal but Cyprus lost 1–2.
After fifteen full playing years as the captain for Cyprus, Okkas announced his retirement from international football on 2 March 2012. On 11 October 2011, he played for the last time with the national side, in UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying Group H match against Norway in Ullevaal Stadion, Oslo, where he scored his last goal for the Cypriot national team.
