Syarhey Mikalayevich Vyeramko (Belarusian: Сяргей Мікалаевіч Верамко; Russian: Серге́й Николаевич Веремко; born 16 October 1982 in Minsk) is a Belarusian footballer (goalkeeper), who is currently playing for FC Ufa and the Belarus national football team, the latter of which he has captained.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Vyeramko was born in the capital of Belarus and made his first steps in professional football with local outfit FC Dinamo-Juni Minsk in the early 2000s.[1]

BATE Borisov[edit]

On 13 August 2008, Vyeramko was one of the key players for BATE Borisov in the Belarusians' away game against Bulgarian side Levski Sofia (third qualifying round of the Champions League), parrying a Georgi Ivanov shot from the penalty spot (the penalty kick had been awarded after a Veremko foul on Georgi Hristov) and making a number of other notable saves to deny the Levski Sofia forwards.[2] The match ended 0:1 and a 1:1 home draw in Barysaw was sufficient to see the Belarusians progress to the group stages of the Champions League for the first time in their history. (Vyeramko did not play in the home leg due to a suspension attributable to accumulated yellow cards).[3] However, Vyeramko was the starting goalkeeper in all of his team's games in the UEFA Champions League group stage, earning himself 1 yellow card during the Belarusians' 1:1 away draw against FC Zenit Saint Petersburg on 21 October 2008 (after a mild altercation with Portuguese forward Danny).[4] On 9 April 2009, Vyeramko was shown a red card in the 17th minute of BATE Borisov's 0:1 away loss to FC Naftan Novopolotsk in a Belarusian Cup game for handling the ball outside his penalty area.[5]

During the 2010 season, Vyeramko managed to keep a clean sheet in his first 6 games, but was subsequently injured. On 19 May 2010, he returned to first team action in the 1:0 home win against FC Dinamo Brest. Remarkably, he conceded his first goals for the season in the 1:2 home loss against FC Minsk on 13 June 2010. In the process, Vyeramko set a Belarusian Premier League record by keeping a clean sheet for 1016 consecutive minutes.[6] In September 2010, Vyeramko managed to save three successive penalties that he faced – on 16 September 2010, he denied Artem Milevskiy from the spot in the 2:2 away draw against Dynamo Kyiv in a UEFA Europa League game,[7] on 22 September 2010, he parried a penalty that was taken by Stanislaw Drahun in the 1:3 home loss against Dinamo Minsk in a Belarusian Premier League match,[8] and on 30 September 2010, he was up to the task against AZ Alkmaar's Jonathas in the 4:1 home win in a UEFA Europa League match.[9]

PFC Sevastopol[edit]

In early January 2011, it was revealed that Vyeramko will sign a 2.5 year contract with Ukrainian Premier League side PFC Sevastopol, with the player claiming that he had reached the limit for his professional development in the Belarusian Premier League.[10] The transfer was finalized on 14 January 2011.[11] On 25 January 2011, Vyeramko made his unofficial debut for his new team, playing the first half of the 1:1 draw with Kazakh side FC Shakhter Karagandy.[12] His official debut came on 3 March 2011, in the 0:1 home loss against table leaders FC Shakhtar Donetsk, with Veremko playing the full 90 minutes.[13] Veremko quickly established himself as a starter for the side, but the team was relegated to the Ukrainian First League at the end of the season.

Krylya Sovetov Samara[edit]

In late July 2011, he signed a three-year contract with Russian club FC Krylya Sovetov, being envisioned as a replacement for Raïs M'Bolhi.[14] On 1 August 2011, Vyeramko made his debut as a starter in the 1:1 home draw with Amkar Perm.[15] In December 2011, he was selected as Krylya Sovetov's 2011 player of the year, with fellow Belarusian Sergei Kornilenko coming in second place.[16] Veremko was also given the captain's armband on a full-time basis by manager Andrey Kobelev.[17] On 24 July 2012, Veremko extended his contract with the Samara team until 2016.[18] During the second half of the 2013–14 Russian Premier League season, Veremko faced competition for the goalkeeping spot from Ján Mucha and Denis Vavilin. He left the team in early July 2014, after it had been relegated from the Russian Premier League.[19]


On 10 July 2014, Veremko signed a one-year contract with newly promoted Russian Premier League club Ufa.[20]

International career[edit]

Vieramko playing for Belarus in 2012.

Since 2008 Vyeramko has been a regular member of the Belarus national football team. On 2 February 2008, Vyeramko made his debut for the national side in the 2:0 win against Iceland, which was the opening match of the unofficial Malta International Football Tournament 2008.[21] His first stint between the sticks in a competitive game was in the 3:1 away win against Andorra on 10 September 2008 in a 2010 World Cup qualifier, with Vyeramko only conceding after a penalty kick.[22] On 3 March 2010, Vyeramko earned his third cap in the 3:1 win against Armenia in a friendly match.[23] On 26 March 2011, Vyeramko started in net in the Euro 2012 away qualifier against Albania due to an injury to first choice goalkeeper Yuri Zhevnov and made a number of good saves, though the only goal of the game was scored after a misunderstanding between him and defender Alyaksandr Martynovich.[24] During Bernd Stange's tenure as head coach Veremko was mostly the second choice goalkeeper, but he became a starter after Georgi Kondratiev was appointed as manager. On 15 August 2012, he captained his country for the first time in the 2:1 win over Armenia in a friendly match.[25] Veremko retained the captain's armband for the first two 2014 World Cup qualifiers – against Georgia and France.[26] Veremko played in 7 of Belarus' 8 matches during the 2014 World Cup qualification campaign (remaining on the substitute's bench only for the last match of the qualifiers - a 1:2 away loss against Spain).[27] Timofei Kalachev took over the captain's armband for the Euro 2016 qualifiers.[28]




Personal life[edit]

Vyeramko is married and has a daughter[32] and a son.[19]
