Olexandr Rybka

Take a look what i found on UEFA.com about Sasha Rybka:

At just 18, Rybka is the youngest member of the Ukraine squad but the precocious goalkeeper is arguably the most naturally gifted sportsman in the 22-man party. He showed great promise as a basketball player, helping his Kiev-based team win a national junior title at the age of eleven, before opting for a career in football as a striker. It was in that position that he joined the FC Dynamo Kyiv youth ranks before a coach spotted his untapped potential as a goalkeeper. Now a member of the senior side at Dynamo, he made his debut for the club in autumn 2005.

That is some career the guys is having... To join Dynamo as a youngster is already an achievement, shows that you got talent and potential, and to join Dynamo as a striker shows that the scouts noticed his attacking skills when they decided to bring him to the club!!! Who knows one day, when we will need an attacker and wont have any on the bench, Rybka might step in, or when we'll need to equalise, he might join in the attack as well...

...And what about he's short lived but already successful career as a basketball player? Thats impressive at t tender age of 18, isnt it?

P.S. last night semi-final game vs serbia was also his debut i believe!

Very much possible... He looked good enoguh for the first team when Sasho was out with an injury... and being just 18 years of age has all the time in the world to develop into a class act...
