Fyodor Mikhailovich Smolov (Russian: Фёдор Михайлович Смолов, born 9 February 1990 in Saratov) is a Russian footballer who plays for RFPL club FC Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast on loan from Dynamo Moscow as a winger or a sweeper.

Club career[edit]

Smolov is a product of the Master-Saturn Yegoryevsk football academy. In 2007, he joined Dynamo Moscow. On 14 July 2010, the club announced that Smolov would join Feyenoord on a one-year loan deal.[1] Returning from loan, Smolov started 2011-2012 season as a squad player, but after 9 matchdays his impact was limited to substitute appearances. So he was loaned again, this time to FC Anzhi Makhachkala - initially for whole 2012-2013 season,[2] and then for the second part of 2013-2014 season. [3]

International career[edit]

Smolov was a part of the Russia U-21 side that was competing in the 2011 European Under-21 Championship qualification.[4] He was an important factor in U-21 team qualifying for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship in the next cycle, scoring 3 goals in the qualification play-offs.

He was called up to the Russian national football team for the first time for a friendly game against the United States on 14 November 2012. He made his debut and scored his first goal for the national team during that game.[5]
