Alexander Kokorin

Experience is the key commodity Russia have relied on in recent years and it has meant that some of the nation’s brightest talent have struggled to find a way into the national team set-up, but this 21-year-old has made the cut for Euro 2012.

Kokorin only made his senior international debut last year and has impressed coach Dick Advocaat enough to earn a place in his final 23-man panel for this summer, with his ability to make an impact from the bench likely to be tested in Russia’s campaign.

Opponents should be made aware that this is one man who is not worth messing with, as he started out of sporting career looking to deliver a few knock-out blows in the boxing ring. Soccer proved to be a slightly less painful sport for Kokorin to pursue and now he gets his chance to shine in a major tournament for the first time.
