Artem Dovbyk (Ukrainian: Артем Олександрович Довбик; born 21 June 1997) is a professional Ukrainian football striker who plays for FC Midtjylland in the Danish Superliga.


Born in Cherkasy, Ukraine, Dovbyk is a product of the FC Cherkaskyi Dnipro academy after graduating from the Olympic Reserve Specialized Sports School Slavutych in Cherkasy.He won the 2014–15 Ukrainian Second League, scoring 7 goals. He was then sent on a three-month loan to Moldovan club FC Zaria Bălți, where he won the Moldovan Cup.

He returned to Ukraine in Summer 2016 from Moldova and signed a contract with FC Dnipro in August 2016.[1] He would go on to score a joint team high 6 goals as he won the 2016–17 Ukrainian Premier League Best Young Player award. This prompted Ukraine national football team coach Andriy Shevchenko to call him for 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

When Dnipro were relegated due to incurring debt, Dovbyk stayed with the club. He would go on to score 12 goals in 13 games in the Ukrainian Second League, gaining interest from foreign clubs, and in 2018 he joined Danish club FC Midtjylland on a free transfer.[2]

International career[edit]

He was called up in the training camp of the Ukraine national under-19 football team, but has not played any game for this representation. At the age of 19, Dovbyk received his first call up to the full national team when he was named in the 31-player senior squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Iceland on 5 September 2016.[3]

He took part in 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification as a 19 year old. Ukraine is currently undergoing 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification.
