Andranik Voskanyan (Armenian: Անդրանիկ Ոսկանյան, born 11 April 1990), is an Armenian football player who currently plays as a defender for the Armenian national team and the Armenian Premier League club Alashkert FC.

Club career[edit]

Andranik Voskanyan loved football from early childhood. When he was in the first grade, a football coach visited looking for children interested in playing football. Voskanyan did not miss the opportunity and started to go to training. He began his career in the football school of Malatia Yerevan (now school property of Banants Yerevan) under the direction of Hakob Andreasyan.

He started playing for Mika-2 in the Armenian First League in 2008. Two years later, Voskanyan made his debut for the first team Mika Yerevan in the Armenian Premier League. He played three games that year. In 2011, he got a starter position in the defense and was a major player that season. In the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League, Mika had a match against Norwegian club Vålerenga Fotball. Voskanyan did not play on the field and remained at the touch-lines.[1][2]

International career[edit]

In 2011, the chief coach of the Armenian national team saw Voskanyan's skills and recruited him in the Armenia U-21 youth team. On June 7 the same year, he made his debut for the youth national team in the qualifying matches for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship. His debut came in the opening match against the Montenegro U-21 youth team, which the Armenian youth team dealt a crushing defeat to 4-1.[3] He played 5 games as a youth, all in 2011.

On February 28, 2012, he made his debut in the Armenia national football team in a friendly match against Serbia. Voskanyan played on the field in the 77th minute of the match, replacing Varazdat Haroyan. The match ended in defeat for Armenia 0-2.[4]
