Yevhen Selin is a powerful, enterprising left-back who has graduated from Ukraine's Under-21 team and will represent the senior side on home turf at UEFA EURO 2012. Formerly with FC Metalist Kharkiv, he has blossomed over the past two seasons with FC Vorskla Poltava.
• Joined the youth ranks of FC Stal Alchevsk in his early teens but made no first-team appearances for the club and was transferred to Metalist in 2007.
• Made slow progress at Metalist, featuring in just eight league games in three seasons under coach Myron Markevych.
• Sent on loan to Vorskla for the whole of the 2010/11 season, he played a starring role as they finished in sixth place to qualify for Europe, making 29 starts and scoring two goals, the first of them shortly after his arrival in a 3-2 victory at Metalist; helped Zeleno-Bili into the group stage of the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League, where he started all six matches.
• Selected by Pavlo Yakovenko for the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Denmark, he started two games – against England (0-0) and Spain (0-3).
• Enjoyed an unforgettable senior debut for Ukraine on 7 October 2011, opening the scoring in a 3-0 defeat of Bulgaria that ended a run of four defeats for Oleh Blokhin's side; retained his place for each of the next four UEFA EURO 2012 warm-up fixtures against Estonia, Germany, Austria and Israel.
