Legendary Ukrainian ex-forward Andriy Shevchenko was born in Kvirkivschyna, 1976. He is one of the younger managers on the international scene having taken charge of his home nation in 2016.

It will comes as no surprise to anyone who has followed football over the past two decades to know that Shevchenko had a long and illustrious career at the very pinnacle of world football. Over an 18 years period, Shevchenko played 446 times, scoring 219 goals giving him a goals per games ration of almost one every other game. As well has achievements in the club game, the striker earned 111 caps for Ukraine and scored 48 international goals, setting himself out in front as hi nations highest ever scorer.

Shevchenko's footballing story started when he was just ten years old when he was scouted by the most prestigious club in Ukraine, Dynamo Kyiv. For seven years, Shevchenko would wow staff at the Kyiv academy before they decided that, at the age of 18, he was ready to make the step up to first team responsibilities. It was clear from the very start that Shevchenko had a dazzling future ahead of him; his energy combined with his natural instinct for sniffing out goalscoring opportunities meant that he was certain to have a magnificent career.

As early as 1992, when Shevchenko was 15, the forward was playing for Kyiv's 'B' team and after a number of successful campaigns with the second string he made his professional debut in 1994. In his first full season, Shevchenko struggled to find goalscoring form despite putting in some impressive performances, but in his second campaign the world got their first glimpses of what was to come from the young poacher as he netted 16 times in 31 league appearances. By the end of his five seasons with the club, Shevchenko would have played 249 games in total and scored a remarkable 123 goals in all competitions. Throughout this era, thanks to Shevchenko's goalscoring feats, Dynamo had won the Ukrainian Primer league five times in succession as well as the Ukrainian Cup three times.

Clearly, the Ukrainian was due a big move and in 1999 it arrived. AC Milan, approaching the height of their powers at the turn of the new millennium, acquired Shevchenko for a then eye-watering $25-million sum. He proved an instant revelation, scoring 29 times in his first season, form he maintained throughout his seven year spell with the Italian titans. In 322 Milan appearances, Shevchenko scored 175 goals. Along the way he won five trophies including one Serie A, one Coppa Italia and - the crowning achievement - one Champions League.

In 2006, Shevchenko decide he was due a new challenge. Towards this end, he accepted an offer from newly-minted Chelsea to play in the Premier League. It would prove an ill-fated move. Shevchenko scored just nine goals in his time at Stanford Bridge and he would come to look back on his stint in London as the beginning of the end of his otherwise magnificent career.

He had an unsuccessful loan spell with old club AC Milan before deciding the time was right to return to his homeland in Ukraine. He saw out the rest of his days playing Ukraine during which he scored 30 goals in three seasons.

After hanging up his boots, Shevchenko accepted an offer to become assistant manager of his nation in 2016. After Mykhaylo Fomenko's dismissal, he was appointed on a permanent basis.
