George Karlaftis seals Super Bowl debut with a victory

·

Greek-born professional American football player George Karlaftis and his team, the Kansas City Chiefs, have been crowned champions of Super Bowl 2023.

The game marked Karlaftis’ first time ever playing in the Super Bowl.

Defender Karlaftis helped his team to victory against the Philadelphia Eagles at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, the United States, on Sunday.

The Chiefs orchestrated a brilliant comeback win to beat the Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl for their second National Football League (NFL) title in four years.

Trailing 24-14 at half-time, the Chiefs — led by league MVP, quarterback Patrick Mahomes — scored three second-half touchdowns and a 27-yard field goal by Harrison Butker in the final seconds to win a thriller.
