League summary (as for 30 May 2016):
No senior team appearances yet.
Aleksandr Lomovitskiy is a product of Spartak Moscow youth academy – team he describes as his ‘dream club’. He showed himself to a wider crowd at the 2015 European Under-17 Championship, where he was one of the best players of young “Sborna” side that made it to the semi-final, but got knocked out by a very strong Germany team. A few months later, he played at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup, but Russia lost unexpectedly to Ecuador in the last 16 at that tournament. He didn’t make his professional debut yet, but Spartak coaches aren’t afraid to give youth a chance – Aleksandr Zuev, Georgi Melkadze, Denis Davydov and Igor Leontjev – are the best examples of that, so it is possible that highly-rated Aleksandr will break into the senior side very soon.
