HE HAS SPENT HIS WHOLE CAREER IN RUSSIA
At 24-years-old, Kokorin has never played domestic football outside of his native country.
In fact, he has never played competitively for another club besides Dynamo Moscow, who he has represented 201 times since making his debut in 2008.
He did make a transfer to Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013 after the club triggered his €19 million release clause. However, before he could make a competitive appearance, the whole playing squad was put up for sale and he returned to Moscow.
HE IS NOT PROLIFIC
Since making his league debut for Dynamo in 2008, Kokorin has scored 41 goals in 171 appearances.
His most prolific campaigns came between 2012 and 2014 when he scored 10 goals in back-to-back seasons as Moscow finished seventh and fourth respectively.
So far this campaign, he has played in just eight of Dynamo's 18 league matches, scoring four goals.
HE HAS AS MANY WORLD CUP GOALS AS WAYNE ROONEY
Kokorin has 36 caps for the Russian national team and will likely line up against England in their Euro 2016 Group B game in Marseille.
The 24-year-old has scored 10 goals in those appearances including the opening goal in the 1-1 draw with Algeria at the 2014 World Cup.
He also scored a penalty to wrap up a 2-0 win over Montenegro that booked Russia's place at next summer's European Championships.
