Dmitri Alenichev
FACTFILE
Russia's Dmitri Alenichev
Born: 20/10/72
Club: Porto
Position: Midfielder
Debut: 9/2/96 v Iceland
Exciting midfielder Alenichev has enjoyed a trophy-laden stint with Champions League winners Porto.

He scored in his side's 3-0 win over Monaco to add to his strike in the 2003 Uefa Cup final against Celtic.

He arrived at the Portuguese champions from Serie A where he enjoyed spells at Roma and Perugia.

Despite his impressive club pedigree and his Russian Player of the Year award in 1997, he has struggled to be a regular starter for the national side.

However, he is the most experienced player in the Russian squad after Alexander Mostovoi was expelled for disciplinary reasons.

Alenichev usually plays on the left for Russia, but is equally adept dictating play from the middle of the park.


Did you know? Alenichev was left out of Russia's squad for the 2002 World Cup finals.
