Cyprus FA (KOP) site (not as reliable as it should) lists a Nea Salamina’s player named Michalakis Orfanidis with 3 caps (all in WC qualifiers) and none Marios Orfanidis (of N. Salamina or other club). An Orfanidis also took part in Cyprus match nr.4 (vs FRG 0-5 away, QW-8), as seen in German FA site ((link: ) which I regard rather reliable. He is written as Orfanixdes, but surely he’s the same that played in the above match Cyprus-FRG 0-6 (see also (link: )
So, I think he is MICHALAKIS (maybe Marios is his other first name) and has 3 caps.
Given the chance, the Cyprus line-ups of both matches should be updated, as I spotted several differences between "eu-football" and DBF’s data. In some cases maybe, the same player appears under his nickname or short name.

This is very usual in Cyprus and creates great deal of confusion in football statistics. I have already posted a topic in FORUM, asking any help (especially from Cyprus). (link: )

Maybe, you can rely on "Takis-on-line". As a Cypriot, he possibly had access to reliable sources.
I tried to find data for the Cyprus matches vs FRG and Sweden, in order to check his reliability. Nothing found for Cyprus line-ups in CFA, Swedish sites or Hellenic newspapers, so I only compared Takis with DBF’s data for the Cyprus matches vs FRG, taking into account CFA’s list for total caps.
I spotted just 2 differences, both in match nr.4:
- ORFANIDIS instead of Andros ANTONIADIS
- ASSIOTIS instead of Michalis PAMBORIS.
CFA gives ORFANIDIS 3 (all QW) and ANTONIADIS 4 caps (3 QW + 1 friendly), so I think Tasos has a mistake here. Remember CFA names Orfanidis as Michalakis, not Marios.
CFA has only one ASSIOTIS (Dimitris id=877), who wasn’t born then and gives PAMBORIS 2 caps all in QE. If it’s a mistake and they mean QW, Tasos should be wright here and "Assiotis" is just Pamboris nickname (greek pronunciation: Παμπορής).
According to this little check, Tasos-on-Line seems to be rather reliable. The problem is that he, like all Cypriots, uses nicknames, short and first names in place of surnames. Please note that Antonis Karas (one "k") is "Tsoukkas" and Nikos Kantzileris is "Nikakis".
