Fyodor Mikhaylovich Smolov (Russian: Фёдор Миха́йлович Смо́лов, born 9 February 1990) is a Russian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Krasnodar and the Russian national team. He has previously played for Dynamo Moscow, Feyenoord, Anzhi Makhachkala and Ural.

Club career[edit]

Smolov is a graduate of the Master-Saturn Yegoryevsk football academy. In 2007, he joined Dynamo Moscow. On 14 July 2010, the club announced that Smolov would join Feyenoord on a one-year loan deal.[1] Returning from loan, Smolov started 2011-2012 season as a squad player, but after 9 matchdays his impact was limited to substitute appearances. So he was loaned again, this time to Anzhi Makhachkala - initially for whole 2012-2013 season,[2] and then for the second part of 2013-2014 season.[3] During this time, he played with such players as Samuel Eto'o, Willian and Lassana Diarra.

Loan to Ural[edit]

On 1 September 2014, Smolov joined Ural Yekaterinburg on a season-long loan deal.[4] Two weeks later, on his new club debut, he scored a goal in a 1-2 away loss to Amkar Perm.[5] He played a major role in the season, providing 8 goals and 2 assists in 22 league appearances for Ural.

Krasnodar[edit]

On 2 June 2015, Smolov signed a four-year contract with the Russian Premier League club Krasnodar as a free agent.[6] He made his competitive debut for his new club in a 1-0 away victory over Amkar Perm in his first league match on 20 July 2015,[7] and scored his first goal in a 3-3 draw against Slovan Bratislava in the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round on 6 August.[8]

On 10 April 2016, Smolov scored four goals in Krasnodar's 6-0 victory over his former club Ural Yekaterinburg.[9] With 20 goals in 29 games, he became the top scorer of the 2015–16 Russian Premier League season, and he is the first Krasnodar player who achieved this title.

International career[edit]

Smolov was a part of the Russia U-21 side that was competing in the 2011 European Under-21 Championship qualification.[10] He was an important factor in U-21 team qualifying for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship in the next cycle, scoring three goals in the qualification play-offs.

On 6 November 2012, Russia manager Fabio Capello included Smolov in the squad for a friendly game against the United States.[11] During the game, he made his debut and scored his first goal for the national team, netting the opener in a 2–2 home draw on 14 November.[12]

Smolov scored his first competitive goal for the national team in a 7-0 away victory against Liechtenstein in a Euro 2016 qualifier on 8 September 2015.[13] He was subsequently included in Russia's squad for the final tournament in France, where he started in all three matches as Russia finished 4th in the group B.[14][15]

Personal life[edit]

Smolov is fluent in English and has read the books by Mario Puzo in the original language.[16] Since 2012, he was in a relationship with Russian model and TV hostess Victoria Lopyreva. The couple got married in December 2013 but then divorced in May 2015.[17]
