Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Kokorin (Russian: Александр Александрович Кокорин; born 19 March 1991) is a Russian footballer currently playing for Dynamo Moscow. Kokorin along with Alan Dzagoev is said to be the future of Russian football and he has become a great talent during his time with Dynamo Moscow with the 2012–2013 being his breakthrough season and Dynamo Moscow inserting a €19 million release clause.
He made his debut for the senior FC Dynamo Moscow team on 4 October 2008 – Dynamo was decimated by injuries and was losing to FC Saturn Moscow Oblast 0:1 at the halftime when Kokorin came on as a substitute. With 18 minutes to go Kokorin scored an equalizer (Dynamo went on to win 2:1). He became the youngest player to score a goal for Dynamo in the Russian Premier League (17 years 199 days). He scored a winning goal in a 1:0 victory over FC Lokomotiv Moscow in his second game as a starter on 3 November 2008.
At the end of the 2012/13 season he entered the Top 33 players list as the No. 1 Left Striker.
Return to Dynamo
On 6 August 2013, following restructuring of Anzhi at business level, the whole squad was put up for sale, including new signing Kokorin. On 7 August 2013, Yuri Zhirkov, Igor Denisov and Kokorin were all transferred to Dynamo for an undisclosed fee.
Kokorin was a part of the Russia U-21 side that was competing in the 2011 European Under-21 Championship qualification. Kokorin was called up to the Russia national football team for a friendly against Greece in November 2011 and made his national team debut in that game. He played two games at UEFA Euro 2012 as Russia failed to pass the group stages.
