Golovin won the UEFA under 17 European Championship with Russia back in 2013 and he’s been a star in the making ever since. Although he only has 17 caps and is not a guaranteed starter in a Russian midfield blessed with some good, but more experienced, players, this World Cup could be the moment that Golovin announces himself to a wider audience. He has the skill set and in front of a partisan home crowd, if he replicates his CSKA form, he will surely become one of Europe’s hottest midfield properties.
