Mikhail Sivakov


Clubs: FC BATE Borisov, Cagliari Calcio, Piacenza Calcio (loan), Wisła Kraków (loan)

Under-21 debut: 2-0 v Turkey (14/10/2008)

Senior international debut: 0-1 v Sweden (02/06/2010)

• Capped at U17 and U19 level before he joined the U21 ranks, central midfielder Sivakov captained Belarus in qualifying for the 2011 finals, scoring twice in eight appearance.

• At BATE, the one-time FC Smena Minsk trainee won the 2006 Belarusian Cup and back-to-back domestic titles in 2007 and 2008, prompting a move to Italy to join Cagliari in January 2009.

• First-team football proved hard to come by at the Sant'Elia Stadium, so he spent part of the 2009/10 campaign in Serie B with Piacenza and then helped Wisła claim the 2010/11 Polish title.
