Artyom Sergeyevich Dzyuba (Russian: Артём Серге́евич Дзюба; born 22 August 1988 in Moscow) is a Russian footballer who plays as a striker for FC Spartak Moscow in the Russian Premier League.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Dzyuba was born in Moscow in 1988. He attended Spartak Moscow's football school and started playing for the team's reserves in 2005.[1] In 2006 he first played for the first team in a Russian Cup match against FC Ural, replacing Roman Pavlyuchenko in the 85th minute. He had his first substitute appearance in the Russian Premier League in the 12th round against Saturn Moscow. He had 7 substitute appearances in that season, but did not score.[2]

In 2007, Dzyuba started appearing in the line-up. He scored a winning goal for the first team in the Cup match against Sibir FC and it was Artyom's first goal for the main squad. As for the Premier League, he first scored in the 5th round against Tom FC. He made 21 appearances in the season and scored 5 goals.

In 2008, Dzyuba played 16 games in the Premier League and only scored the equalizing goal in the 19th round match Against Dynamo Moscow. The game ended 1–1 draw. He also scored twice in a cup game against Dynamo Bryansk.

He has been involved in Spartak's European club competition performances. In the UEFA Cup, Dzyuba scored twice against Tottenham Hotspur in the last group stage match. But Spurs hit back after the break, and the game ended in a 2–2 draw which eliminated Spartak.

He has made several remarkable performances in Europe, most recently successfully tricking two defenders and then scoring a goal against FC Porto in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League 2010–11.

On 7 August 2009 FC Tom Tomsk signed the striker on loan from FC Spartak Moscow until December 2009.[3] Artyom returned to Spartak in December 2010. Soon after, he began training with the first team in Sokolniki training center where Valery Karpin took Dzyuba for Spartak's January training session in Turkey. Karpin preferred to use Dzyuba as a central forward, but he is also proficient as a winger. He scored a goal against Dacia in 54-minute of friendly match in Belek. Dzyuba continued to show excellent results, which earned him a starting place against FC Basel. It was his first official match for Spartak in 2011. Dzyuba scored in that game, chipping the goalkeeper with elegant style. Spartak won 3:2, with Dzyuba being named man of the match. Dzyuba scored a superb goal against FC Porto on 14 April 2011, where he beat two Porto defenders with his skill and finished with aplom.

2011–2012 Despite some success in Europe (victory over Ajax with a total score of 4–0[4]), Spartak started the season in Russia badly, but eventually managed to not only go from last place in the standings, but also to take 2nd place, so the team will be playing in the 2012–2013 Champions League. Artyom is becoming one of the team's leaders and has helped his team to get a Champions League ticket, with 41 appearances and 11 goals in the season. Artyom's skills have been improving through the season, and it's evident his confidence is growing as a player. Artyom has been chosen the team's best player of the month several times this year.[5]

2013–2014 During the summer 2013, Artyom was loaned to Rostov for the whole season. Artyom has immediately begun to fulfill expectations by scoring two goals in the first game for the new team. What is more, Artyom was named the player of the month in Russian Premier League. However, the first official game of Artyom for the national team against Northern Ireland in World Cup 2014 caused some controversies among famous analysts and it is still doubtful whether Artyom is ambitious enough and fully committed to work on himself in order to be in the 23 men list that will depart to Brazil in June 2014.

Dzyuba is well known for his cheerful and genial disposition, and he is always willing to talk to journalists. As he once told, "if laughter prolongs one's life, I am immortal".[6]

International career[edit]

Dzyuba was a part of the Russia U-21 side that was competing in the 2011 European Under-21 Championship qualification.[7]

He made his Russia national football team debut on 11 November 2011 in a friendly against Greece. He was called up to the provisional squad for UEFA Euro 2012.[8] He was not included on the finalized squad for the competition.[9]

Dzyuba scored his first goal for Russia against Liechtenstein on 8 September 2014, his side's final goal in a 4-0 rout of the minnows. On 12 October he put Russia ahead in a qualifier against Moldova with a penalty which he had earned himself, although the match ended 1–1.[10]
