Thomas "Tom" Kouzmanis (born 22 April 1973 in East York, Ontario) is a retired Canadian soccer player of Greek-Macedonian descent.


Club career

He played club football for the Nova Scotia Clippers, the University of Toronto, the Montreal Impact and the Vaughan Sun Devils. A three year injury lay-off between 1997 and 2000 put an end to his international career.

In 2003 he was in violation of a rule which states that an athlete is allowed to participate in Canadian Interuniversity Sport competition up to a maximum of five years. In 2001, Kouzmanis was a member of the Toronto Olympians professional soccer team that competed in the summer months. He returned to the University of Toronto that fall and resumed his playing career with the Varsity Blues. As it was in the same calendar year, he was charged one year of eligibility for participating with the professional team and one year of eligibility with the Varsity Blues, putting him at the maximum of five years. Thus, when he took to the field that season he was in effect in his sixth year of competition.[1]

International career

Kouzmanis played in all three of Canada's games at the 1989 FIFA U-16 World Championship in Scotland.[2]

He made his senior debut for Canada in an August 1995 Caribana Cup match against Jamaica in which he immediately scored 2 goals.[3] He earned a total of only 5 caps, scoring 4 goals. He was part of the 1996 CONCACAF Gold Cup squad but did not play. His final international was an August 1997 friendly match against Iran.
