From 1992 to 2003, he played 71 internationals, and featured at two World Cups and Euro 96. With 26 goals, he is alongside Aleksandr Kerzhakov the joint all-time goal leader for the Russian national team. He is also the record goalscorer in the Commonwealth of Independent States Cup, with 20 goals for FC Spartak Moscow, for whom he now coaches the under-21 team.

Club career[edit]

His club career that started in 1991, with Beschastnykh playing for Zvezda Moscow, Spartak Moscow, Werder Bremen, Racing Santander, Fenerbahçe, and Kuban Krasnodar. In the 2004–05 season he played for FC Orel in Russia's First Liga (second-level division after Premier Liga).

On 15 December 2005, Beschastnykh signed up with another First Liga club – FC Khimki, a well-funded football team from a Moscow suburb, competing for a place in the upper echelon of the Russian championship.

In May 2007, FC Khimki released Beschastnykh. After playing for Kazakh Premier League side FC Astana in 2008, he retired from playing.

International career[edit]

For Russia, Beschastnykh has scored 26 goals in 71 caps, his first coming in 1992. He is the top goalscorer for the Russian national team excluding Soviet-era goals (Oleg Blokhin had 42 for the USSR national team). One of these goals came in the 2002 World Cup against Belgium; Beschastnykh also played in the 1994 tournament, as well as in Euro 96.
