Aleksandr Golovin Facts

  1. When he was just 5 years old, he told his father that he was going to become a professional soccer player no matter what happens.
  2. He grew up in a tiny town of Kaltan, Russia.
  3. As his hometown of Kaltan only had 1 regular-sized pitch, which was poorly maintained, he played a lot of soccer while growing up on futsal pitches, which has helped him develop his dribbling and quick passing skills.
  4. In 2012, he was called into the Siberia XI for a tournament held in Crimea. He had also established himself as an important player at Leninsk-Kuznetsky.
  5. Aleksandr was spotted by the CSKA scouts at the tournament in Crimea and he was immediately signed up by the Russian club’s youth setup.
  6. He was a member of the Russia national under-17 football team that went on to win the 2013 UEFA European Under-17 Championship. Later, he finished as a runner-up at the 2015 UEFA European Under-19 Championship with the under-19 team.
  7. Fabio Capello left many experts and analysts puzzled when he decided to call up Golovin to the national squad in June 2015 as he had made just a single appearance for CSKA Moscow.
  8. As Alan Dzagoev and Igor Denisov were injured, he got an opportunity to play for the national team at the Euro 2016. It also counted in his favor that the national coach was Leonid Slutsky, who had previously mentored Golovin at CSKA.
  9. When Slutsky became Hull City‘s coach in June 2017, Golovin was heavily linked with a move to the English side. But, they didn’t have the necessary funds to tempt CSKA to sell their prodigy.
  10. In June 2018, he played a key role in his side’s 5-0 victory over Saudi Arabia in the first group stage match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. He recorded 2 assists and scored a stunning free kick for his side’s final goal.
  11. He doesn’t have any official social media account.
