Ayaz Guliev belongs to the generation of very talented Russian players born in 1996, which won the UEFA European Under-17 Championship 2013 and then, 2 years later, won 2nd place at the U-19 Championship. At the latter of the two tournaments, he was one of the best players of the young “Sborna”. It is worth noting that Ayaz amassed over 40 games across all age levels of youth international football, and this number is bound to rise. His home club is Spartak Moscow, where he currently plays for the reserve team. That should change soon, however, and we should see him play in the first team.
