Like his identical twin brother, Vasili, Aleksei Berezutski is a strong, brave and versatile central defender who has won a host of domestic trophies with PFC CSKA Moskva, including six Russian Cups. He was an unused squad member at UEFA EURO 2008 and has yet to play in a major international tournament.
• Started out with FC Torpedo-ZIL Moskva; left brother Vasili behind and went to play for FC Chernomorets Novorossiysk in 2001 but soon rejoined his twin at CSKA, where he made the better initial impression.
• First capped by Russia in February 2003, the year in which he was the only ever-present in CSKA's first Russian title triumph.
• Crowned Premier-Liga champion twice more, in 2005 and 2006, missing just three games in the process.
• A UEFA Cup winner in 2004/05 at the end of a marathon European campaign in which he played 18 matches; headed the equalising goal in the final against Sporting Clube de Portugal in Lisbon.
• Played 120 minutes of CSKA's 2008 Russian Cup final triumph over FC Amkar Perm, but featured for barely a minute as the Army Men retained it the following year against FC Rubin Kazan.
• Ever-present for CSKA in the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League group stage, in which his brother headed an 86th-minute winner on matchday six against FC Internazionale Milano to take his side into the last 16.
