Artem Milevskiy

FC Dynamo Kyiv

A striker full of talent and ingenuity, Artem Milevskiy has spent his whole career with FC Dynamo Kyiv and was the Ukrainian Premier League's 17-goal top scorer in 2009/10. Fast-tracked into senior international football at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, he should be at peak maturity for UEFA EURO 2012.

• Born in Belarus, Milevskiy represented the country of his birth at junior level before switching allegiance to Ukraine following a move to Dynamo in 2002.

• Made his Premier League debut for Dynamo during the club's double-winning 2002/03 campaign and developed as a highly skilful striker over the next few seasons.

• Starred in the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Portugal as he helped Ukraine finish runners-up to the Netherlands; called up by Oleh Blokhin for the FIFA World Cup in Germany a few weeks later and made his senior debut at that tournament, replacing Andriy Shevchenko in 4-0 win against Saudi Arabia.

• Scored his first UEFA Champions League goal against Real Madrid CF at the Santiago Bernabéu (albeit in a 5-1 defeat) and found the target seven times in Dynamo's long European run of 2008/09 that ended in the UEFA Cup semi-finals, four of his goals coming in a UEFA Champions League qualifying tie against FC Spartak Moskva.

• Enjoyed a prolific domestic season in 2009/10, topping the Premier League scoring charts with 17 goals but unable to add any trophies to his four championship titles and as many Ukrainian Cup wins; scored 15 top-flight goals over the next two seasons as Dynamo managed successive second place finishes.
