Andriy Mykolaiovich Yarmolenko (Ukrainian: Андрій Миколайович Ярмоленко born 23 October 1989 in Leningrad) is a Ukrainian football winger or forward who currently plays for Dynamo Kyiv in the Ukrainian Premier League and the Ukraine national football team.

Yarmolenko has been a full international for Ukraine since 2009, scoring 19 goals in 48 matches and playing at UEFA Euro 2012.

Early life

Yarmolenko's parents, native Ukrainians, were from Kulykivka Raion, Chernihiv oblast, Ukraine. After getting married his mother was offered a job in Leningrad, Russia and moved there, later joined by her husband. Shortly after the birth of Andriy the family moved back to their native land, the city of Chernihiv.[2]

Club career

Early career

Yarmolenko is generally a pupil of the Chernihiv youth system. He joined Dynamo Kyiv Youth Academy at 13. However, he returned to Chernihiv after a year, unable to endure the physical demands of training.[2] At the start of his professional career he played at local clubs Polissia and Desna before joining Dynamo.

Dynamo Kyiv

In December 2006 Yarmolenko signed a five-year contract with Ukrainian giants, Dynamo Kyiv, where he was placed in its second team Dynamo-2 that plays in lower leagues for a couple of seasons. The talented youngster was praised as the "new Sheva" by journalists, who noted his qualities of good physique, shot, and especially his speed. Then-vice-president of Dynamo, Yozhef Sabo, also praised the youngster, saying that "Yarmolenko has all the makings to become a top-level player."[3][4]

On 11 May 2008 Yarmolenko debuted for Dynamo's main team in an away match against Vorskla Poltava and scored the winning goal in Kyiv's 1–2 victory.[5] He scored 7 goals in 21 games in his first season and 11 in 19 in his second. He is now regularly used as a left or centre forward.

International career

In 11 August 2007 Yaromolenko represented Ukraine under-19 in an away exhibition game against Japan, winning 1–0. He also participated in the 2008 UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualification.

After the qualification on 10 October 2008 Yarmolenko was invited to the youth under-21 squad which played against the youth squad of the Netherlands. He later participated in qualification and finals of the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.

On 5 September 2009, in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification game against Andorra national football team, Yarmolenko made his first senior appearance for Ukraine and scored in a 5–0 win.

On 2 September 2011 when Ukraine had an international friendly against Uruguay in Kharkiv, Yarmolenko set a national team record by scoring 14 seconds into the match, the fastest time in which a Ukraine national team player has scored a goal.

Yarmolenko scored a hat-trick on 15 November 2014, netting all of Ukraine's goals in a 3–0 victory away to Luxembourg in UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying.[6]
