Artem Anatoliyovich Kravets (Ukrainian: Артем Анатолійович Кравець; born 3 June 1989 in Dniprodzerzhynsk, Soviet Union) is a Ukrainian football striker that plays for Ukrainian side Dynamo Kyiv.

Club career[edit]

Kravets appeared for regularly for the Dynamo Reserves and Dynamo-2 Kyiv until he was noticed by Dynamo's new coach Yuriy Semin, who took him to the main team in the 2007–2008 season, who recognized the player's great potential. Most notable appearance was in UEFA CUP game vs Valencia which ended in 2:2 draw, helping Kyiv to advance by aggregate goals. Kravets scored both goals for Dynamo on 34-th and 73-d minutes. Match was played on 27 February 2009.

Kravets is, arguably, Dynamo Kyiv's most natural finisher and many saw him as the natural successor to Andrei Shevchenko but since the 2010-2011 season (whilst on the verge of breaking into the full national team), Artem has had a series of serious injuries and missed most of the last 3 league campaigns.

After a long struggle though, he has finally regained full fitness and started to display some of his original potential whilst forcing himself back into the Dynamo Kyiv first team for the 2014/15 season. He is currently Dynamo Kyiv's top goalscorer with 5 goals in 6 league games.

International career[edit]

He was called up to Ukraine national football team for friendly match against Serbia on 26 March 2008,[2] but received an injury just before the match.[3] Kravets was later called in a FIFA World Cup 2010 qualifying match against England on 1 April 2009. However, his debut was again delayed when he suffered an injury to a muscle in his thigh, six days before the match, and was subsequently replaced by Yevhen Seleznyov.[4]
