Igor Akinfeev

Clubs: PFC CSKA Moskva

• Fast-tracked into first-team football at CSKA aged 17; won the Russian championship in his debut season, 2003.

• Won both domestic trophies with CSKA in 2005 as well as the UEFA Cup; started all 19 of their European matches in 2004/05 (UEFA Champions League and UEFA Cup combined), conceding 12 goals and keeping clean sheets in all four UEFA Cup home ties.

• Won his third Russian title in 2006 before sustaining knee ligament damage in May 2007 that sidelined him for six months.

• Did not play at UEFA EURO 2004 in Portugal, where he was third-choice custodian, but started all five games at UEFA EURO 2008 as Russia reached the semi-finals.

• Started all 30 Premier-Liga fixtures for CSKA in both 2008 and 2009, and missed just two matches in 2010 as the Army Men finished second.

• Returned from the knee injury he sustained against city rivals FC Spartak Moskva in August 2011 to keep goal in CSKA's final five league matches of the season and earn a place in Russia's UEFA EURO 2012 squad, but was second choice behind Vyacheslav Malafeev and did not make an appearance in Poland and Ukraine. 

• First choice at CSKA throughout the 2012/13 season, helping the club to a first title since 2006 and the Russian Cup.
