Igor Denisov

This one-club man has seen plenty of changes at Zenit down the years, as they have become one of the standard bearers of Russian football in a new, lucrative era for the nation’s top-flight championship.

A UEFA Cup winner in 2008, Denisov turned down a late call from Russia coach Guus Hiddink to take his place in the country’s Euro 2008, but he was never likely to turn his back on tournament action again after playing in seven Euro 2012 qualifiers and doing so much to get his side through a competitive preliminary phase.

His Champions League experience at Zenit, which included a game in the knock-out phase of this season’s competition, should give him an idea of the kind of quality he will be up against this summer, so Russia coach Dick Advocaat can be confident that he can rely on Denisov in the heat of tournament battle.
