International career[edit]

He received his first international call-up for the Russian national team in 2004. As of 21 June 2008 he has made thirteen appearances for the national team .

Euro 2008[edit]

Kolodin got the chance to appear in his first major international tournament at Euro 2008. He played in all three of Russia's group D matches, against Spain, Sweden and Greece. In the quarter-finals against the Netherlands he received a yellow card mid-way through the second-half and was then shown a second yellow in the last minute, meaning a red card. However, the referee reversed his decision after consulting with his assistant on the basis that the ball had gone out of play before Kolodin committed the tackle. This was a controversial and much-debated decision at the time. Russia went on to win the match 3-1 in extra time.
