Sergei Nikolaievich Ignashevich (Russian: Серге́й Николаевич Игнашевич; born 14 July 1979) is a Russian footballer who plays as a central defender for CSKA Moscow and the Russian national team.

He has also played for Lokomotiv Moscow in his career, and has won Russian Premier League titles for both clubs, as well as the 2005 UEFA Cup Final with CSKA. Ignashevich is often considered one of the highest skilled defenders in the Russian Premier League while playing alongside fellow Russian international defenders and twin brothers Aleksei and Vasili Berezutskiy.

He made his international debut for Russia in 2002, and was selected in their squads for two European Championships and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, helping them to the semi-finals of Euro 2008 and earning his 100th cap at the World Cup.

Club career[edit]

After short spells with Spartak Orekhovo and Krylia Sovetov, Ignashevich joined Lokomotiv Moscow in 2001. In his first season with the capital club, the defender was part of the team which won the Russian Cup. A year later, Lokamotiv won the Russian league title.[1]

In 2004, Ignashevich left Lokamotiv for city rivals CSKA. In his twelve years with the club, Ignashevich has won the 2005, 2006 and 2013 league titles, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2013 Russian Cups, and the 2004–05 UEFA Cup.[1]

Both Ignashevich and Aleksei Berezutskiy were provisionally suspended after both players' A samples revealed the presence of a prohibited substance following a random doping test after CSKA's UEFA Champions League match at Manchester United on 3 November 2009.[2] It was later revealed that they had taken a cold medicine which had not been reported, and both players were suspended for one game, which was applied retroactively.

International career[edit]

Ignashevich made his debut for the Russia national football team against Sweden on 21 August 2002.[3] He started all ten of the team's UEFA Euro 2004 qualifying matches, scoring three times, but missed the tournament finals in Portugal due to injury.[1] He later appeared for Russia at both the 2008 and 2012 UEFA European Championships, helping the team to the semi-finals in the former.[3]

On 2 June 2014, Ignashevich was included in Russia's 2014 FIFA World Cup squad.[4] On 16 June, he made his FIFA World Cup debut in the team's first group match against South Korea.[5] He was then named in the starting line-up for the second match against Belgium at the Maracanã on 22 June.[6] He became only the second Russian, after Viktor Onopko, to earn his 100th cap, in the final group game against Algeria on 26 June in Curitiba. Russia drew 1–1 and their opponents advanced at their expense.[7]
