Antonis Antoniadis (Greek: Αντώνης Αντωνιάδης, born 25 May 1946) is a Greek footballer. He scored 187 goals in a career which spanned 22 years. He started his career at 1964 playing for Aspida Xanthi before moving to Panathinaikos on 31 July 1968.[1] Antoniadis scored his first official goal for Panathinaikos on 27 October 1968 in a 1–0 victory over Apollon Athens. When he was playing in Xanthi, he was a goalkeeper because of his height. His nickname is The Tall.[2]
