Achilleas Grammatikopoulos is a former Greek football player, one of the most prolific goalkeepers in the Greek league during the late 1920s and the early 1930s. Grammatikopoulos was born in Piraeus in 1910. He started his football career at Aris Nikaia before transferring to Olympiakos whose nets he guarded from his debut on November 4, 1928 until 1944. He was considered one of the top keepers of the pre-WW II era and was capped 5 times by the Greek National team. His nickname during that time was "Zamora" after Ricardo Zamora, the top Spaniard goalkeeper of the same era. Grammatikopoulos saw action in World War II. After his playing career was over, he stayed on in football as a referee. Grammatikopoulos is still alive at age 97 and still attends veteran functions of Olympiakos.
