His last name is also transcribed as Sytchev, and his first name as Dmitry or Dmitriy. He has been hailed by the international press as "The Russian Michael Owen" because of his pace and as "The most sensational young Russian forward since Vladimir Beschastnykh". He usually plays as a centre forward although he can play as a support strike and an attacking midfielder.

Club career

Spartak Moscow and Marseille
After having trials at clubs in FC Nantes and FC Metz, Sychev was picked up by FC Spartak Moscow in January 2002, where he scored eight goals in his first 12 matches, and it was during that time when he was transformed into a striker.

He scored 6 goals and finished second on the top scorer list, after coming in as a substitute in every match he played. He entered the symbolic top players list of the tournament.



In August 2002 Sychev announced he was quitting Spartak, by giving his employers three months' notice. Having already signed a five-year contract with the Russian club he was banned from football for four months by the Russian Professional Football League (RPFL).

He went on to claim the Russian Footballer of the Year award in his first season back in the Russian Premier League. With the team he won the Russian Premier League 2004, the 2005 Russian Super Cup, the 2005 Commonwealth of Independent States Cup and 2007 Russian Cup.

Sychev was selected to play for the Russian national team at the 2002 World Cup, where he became the youngest player to appear for the USSR or Russia at 18 years and 222 days. In the event, he scored a goal and set up other three in an otherwise disappointing Russian campaign. This goal made Dmitri Sychev the fourth youngest goalscorer in the FIFA World Cup.

Sychev was called up to Russia's squad for Euro 2008 in Austriamarker and Switzerlandmarker. Despite being a striker at his team Lokomotiv Moscow, during Guus Hiddink's term at the Russian national football team he was used as a midfielder.
