Russia is very well known for their development of great goalkeepers, such as European Footballer of the Year 1963 Lev Yashin, Rinat Dasayev, Stanislav Cherchesov, Dmitri Kharine, Sergei Ovchinnikov or Igor Akinfeev lately. Anton Mitryushkin is the next one tipped to become a world class keeper in the near future. He shone at FIFA U-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates, where as a captain, he guided “Sborna” team to the title. He proved his worth in the tournament by conceding one goal in 400 minutes of game play and also saved three penalties in the final shoot-out against Italy. He received “Golden Player Award” for the most valuable player of the tournament, a prestigous award formerly handed to Cesc Fabregas in 2004, Toni Kroos in 2006 or Wayne Rooney in 2002.
“I believe that Mitryushkin should be given a chance in Spartak first team. Examples of Dmitry Kharin and Igor Akinfeev show that goalkeeper even at such a young age is able to cope with pressure.”
(Dmitry Khomukha – coach of the Russia national under-17 team)
