Challenges The Oleg Veretennikov Challenge


Recommended Posts

The Oleg Veretennikov Challenge

Did you know the top goalscorer in the history of Russian Premier League was primarily an attacking midfielder? 

Of course you did and you all knew his name was Oleg Veretennikov!


Most of Veretennikov's successes have come with SC Rotor Volgograd, for whom he played in 1992–1999. During that time he scored 143 goals, which makes him the best goalscorer in the Russian Premier League history (the next best goalscorer, Dmitry Loskov, has 109 goals as of 1 January 2007). He has also become the season's top goalscorer three times (in 1995, 1997, and 1998), which is also an unbeaten record. Veretennikov also holds a record for the most goals scored in one season (25 in 1995). He is also one of only two players (along with Victor Panchenko) to score five goals in a league match (on 4 April 1998 against Shinnik).

Can you better these goal scoring feats without playing as a striker?
