I can't remember if there was a thread like this, but I think this might be a good idea for some international discussion.

Most people think that fewer and fewer Russian players leave the country because of the high wages paid by Gazprom, Lukoil and co.

BUT they are out there.:) Most of them play there for a long time and seem to have been forgotten. Let's start with two interesting players.

First of all Ivan Saenko: This former Voronezh player (23 years old) has scored 5 goals for Nürnberg this season. Let's see if he gets more call ups for the NT. Yesterday he scored.

Yevgeni Levchenko: A 29 year old midfielder who plays for Groningen in Holland. Has scored against Ajax today.

Let's continue with Alexandr Kerzhakov, 24 year old striker with FC Sevilla and

Andrei Karyaka, 28 year old midfielder and bench player of Benfica.

Any more? :)

Edit: Kerzhakov scored today! Well done, Kerzh! :)

He played for Fakel Voronezh and came to Germany (Karlsruhe) as a young player. Nürnberg signed him from there in 2005.

Karyaka is returning to Russia this month.

Saenko,smertin and Kerzhakov are the ones to watch.

I'd like for CSKA to take a look at Saenko, I want us to sign some Russian talent. I'm praying that Kerzhakov does ok in Spain and gains some much needed experience which he can bring back to the NT.

Thanks! I've checked one site which said he was Russian but he's Ukrainian indeed.
