Oleg Anatolyevich Salenko (Russian: Олег Анатольевич Саленко; Ukrainian: Олег Анатолійович Саленко; Oleh Anatoliyovich Salenko born 25 October 1969 in Leningrad, Russia) is a retired Russianfootballer, who played as a striker. He scored a record of five goals in a group stage match in the 1994 World Cup, helping him earn the Golden Shoe as joint-top tournament goalscorer.
Eventually, he faded from the international soccer scene and finally had to end his career prematurely for health reasons stemming from injuries. Salenko returned to playing professional football in the 2000–01 season and signed for Pogoń Szczecin. He retired after playing a single game however due to his physical conditioning.
Salenko played a total of only nine international matches, one of them for Ukraine (the very first one), and he never scored in an international game before or after the 1994 World Cup. In fact, after the match against Cameroon, he never appeared in another international. He remains the sole player ever to win the Golden Boot award on a team eliminated from World Cup contention at the group stage.
In 2003, Salenko worked as manager of the Ukraine national beach football team. His team played three games with only win over the team of USA 6–5 and lost the other two to Brazil and Spain. The tournament took place at the end of July in Portugal under the name Mundialito. After the tournament, he was dismissed. He is now currently a part of FFU assisting staff.
