Domestic honours: Russian Women's Premier Division (3), Russian Women's Cup (5), Albena Cup (1)

Which player most inspired you and why? Gianluigi Buffon because I am always delighted with his performance. In the women's game it would have to be Silke Rottenberg.

Which coach most inspired you? Sergei Umen.

What was the best advice they gave you? You can succeed if you put all your passion into the game. 

Best player you've played with? Sofia Jakobsson.

Toughest opponent? Birgit Prinz.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? Boots which were two sizes too big for me. A kit that didn't fit, homemade gloves and plenty of exciting stories when we were abroad participating in different tournaments.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? The same advice which I received – you can succeed if you put all your passion into the game.
