Vladimir Beschastnykh
Club:Spartak Moscow
Position:Forward

A pacy striker, Vladmir Beschastnykh was on fire during qualifying when he pitched in with seven goals to send his country on their way to the Far East.

At club level, he suffered a dip in form when he left Spartak Moscow for Spain, where he joined Racing Santander.

However, since returning to Spartak last summer he has been back to his best.

Russia manager Oleg Romantsev, who is also in charge at Spartak, has always been a keen admirer of the player and knows he is a hard worker who is comfortable with his back to goal.
