Yeshchencko with Lokomotiv in 2012

Yeshchenko became famous appearing in a short spell for Dynamo Kyiv in 2006. Although considered a first team player throughout his entire stay in Kiev, Yeshchenko complained of difficulties adhering to the strict physical regime at Dynamo. In turn, Dynamo management loaned the back to its fellow Muscovite club.

In October 2012 he was voted FC Lokomotiv Moscow Player of the month.[2]

On 1 July 2014, Yeshchenko signed for Kuban Krasnodar on a season-long loan deal with the option to buy.[3]

International career[edit]

He made his national team debut on 11 September 2012 in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Israel.

On 2 June 2014, he was included in Russia's 2014 FIFA World Cup squad.[4]
