Alexei Eremenko lived 14 of his 23 years in Finland. 2 years ago he got a Finnish passport and like he says himself he was sure that he will not have a chance to play for Russian NT cos in Russia as he said "a lot of talented players" and in Finland much less, so the choice was accepted by him with no hesitations.
At first he has a pre-contract with Spartak but then he received a call from Italy and he changed his mind.

Articles like that won't help him getting into the Finland starting XI.

Has he been good enough to be in discussions for a place in the Russian team?

I read a rescent article on SkySports and Eremenko said that he regrets ever putting on the Finland jersey, and that the Finnish fans show no respect towards him, and that he wished he could play for Russia btu that it is to late now.
