Clubs: FC Dynamo Kyiv
UEFA European Under-19 Championship: winner 2009
Under-21 debut: 1-2 v Czech Republic (17/11/2010)
• Born and raised in Tbilisi, Georgia, central defender Partsvaniya moved to Kyiv in 2008, subsequently taking Ukrainian citizenship.
• A towering presence in the Ukraine side that won the 2009 UEFA European Under-19 Championship on home soil, Partsvaniya came in for particular praise for his performance in the 2-0 final win against England.
• Did not feature in qualifying for the U21 finals in Denmark but did enough during the pre-tournament training camp to convince coach Pavlo Yakovenko that he was worthy of a place in the squad.
