Belarus

Clubs: FC Lida, FC BATE Borisov, FC Savit Mogilev (loan), FC Belshina Bobruisk (loan), FC Torpedo Zhodino (loan), FC Vedrich-97 Rechytsa

Under-21 debut: 2-2 v Moldova (09/06/2009)

• The little defender started his career in the youth academy at Lida but took a major step up with a move to Belarus's most successful club, BATE, ahead of the 2006 campaign.

• First-team football proved hard to come by in Borisov, though he was able to showcase his skills during loan spells at Savit (2008), Belshina (2009) and Torpedo Zhodino (2010).

• Elected to leave BATE for second-tier side Vedrich-97 in March 2011 making him the only member of the Belarus squad at the U21 finals in Denmark to play outside the top division.
