Oleh Anatoliyovych Husyev (Ukrainian: Олег Анатолійович Гусєв; born 25 April 1983) is a Ukrainian football midfielder for Dynamo Kyiv and the Ukrainian national football team. He is a winger who can also play right full-back.

He has made over 250 Ukrainian Premier League appearances for Dynamo, winning the league three times in addition to four Ukrainian Cups and five Ukrainian Super Cups.

A full international since 2003, Husyev has earned over 95 caps, making him the nation's third-most capped player and fourth-highest international goalscorer of all time. He represented Ukraine at the 2006 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2012.

Club career[edit]

Husyev transferred to Dynamo in the summer of 2003. Following his strong display in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, he was linked with a move to French side Olympique Lyonnais.[2] However, Dynamo Kyiv President Ihor Surkis stated that Husyev, along with fellow players Artem Milevskiy and Ruslan Rotan, are "the future of Dynamo Kyiv".[3]

On 30 March 2014 Husyev suffered a knee to the head from goalkeeper Denys Boyko (on loan from Dynamo Kyiv to Dnipro) grabbing a ball in midair, this collision knocked him to the ground, where he laid motionless for a few seconds before one of the Dnipro midfielders, Jaba Kankava, ran over to open Husyev's mouth and moved his tongue to allow Husyev to breathe. Kankava is credited with possibly saving Husyev's life.[4][5]

On 20 September 2015, Husyev scored a penalty in a 0-2 away win against Volyn Lutsk in the Ukrainian Premier League, which was marked as his 100th competitive senior goal.

International career[edit]

Husyev playing for Ukraine at UEFA Euro 2012.

Husyev made his senior international debut for Ukraine on 20 August 2003, replacing fellow debutant Serhiy Tkachenko at half time in a 0–2 friendly defeat to Romania at the Shakhtar Stadium in Donetsk.[6] He scored his first goal for the team on 17 November 2004, opening a 3–0 away win over Turkey in the ninth minute, for 2006 World Cup qualification.[7] Husyev played all five of Ukraine's games as they reached the quarter-finals at their first World Cup in Germany, scoring the winner in their last-16 penalty shootout against Switzerland.[8] He also played all of their matches as they co-hosted UEFA Euro 2012 with Poland, in a group stage exit.
