Andrei Kanchelskis : biography

23 January 1969 –

International career

Kanchelskis was capped 23 times for the USSR, scoring three goals. He scored, on November 1991 in Cyprus, the last goal in USSR national team history. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union Kanchelskis chose to represent Russia, considered the USSR’s official successor team by FIFA, despite being Ukrainian by birth. After leading a player boycott against Russia’s head coach Pavel Sadyrin and therefore missing the 1994 FIFA World Cup, the only senior major international tournaments Kanchelskis played in were Euro 92 (for CIS) and Euro 96. Overall, Kanchelskis earned 59 international caps, scoring seven times.
