Konstantin Viktorovich Yeryomenko, often transliterated as Eremenko (Russian: Константин Викторович Ерёменко; 5 August 1970 – 18 March 2010) was a Russianfutsal player who was named the greatest futsal player of the 20th century.
Konstantin Yeryomenko was a football player in his youth, but turned to futsal in 1990. He played for Dina Moscow for 10 years, during which time he also became the top scorer for the Russian national team. The Russian team went on to win the 1999 UEFA Futsal Championship and Yeryomenko scored the winning penalty in a shoot-out against the hosts Spain. He was the most famous futsal player in Russia and recognized throughout the futsal community as one of the game's true superstars.
Konstantin Yeryomenko died from a heart attack while playing in a kickabout match. Despite having a history of heart problems, which were instrumental in his decision to retire from futsal and also necessitated surgery at the height of his playing career, he chose to defy doctors' orders and continued to play. He is buried in Moscow's Troyekurovskoye Cemetery.
