Early and personal life

Dzagoev (born Zagoshvili[3]), the younger of two sons of Yelizbar (who is commonly referred to as Tariel) and Lyana, was born and raised in Beslan, North Ossetia–Alania, to which his family, ethnic Ossetians from Georgia,[2] moved in 1989.[4] He played football on the streets with his brother Gela right up to the second grade of elementary school, when their mother, a passionate football fan, brought them to the Terek Beslan youth team.[5]

In 2000, Dzagoev moved to Vladikavkaz to play for a local youth team, Yunost. As their team used to attend Alania Vladikavkaz matches, he became their fan. He describes Valery Gazzaev, an Ossetic footballing legend who later became his coach at CSKA Moscow, as his childhood hero, also stating that Evgeni Aldonin and Frank Lampard were role models for him.[5]

In July 2005, Dzagoev joined the Konoplyov football academy.[6]

In November 2007, he became a player of CSKA Moscow.

In July 2012, Dzagoev married Zarema Abayeva, who is originally from North Ossetia-Alania's capital, Vladikavkaz.[7] They have two children - Elana (born 2013) and Khetag (born 2016).[8][9]

Dzagoev signed for CSKA Moscow before the start of the 2008 Premier League season.[12] His first appearance was as a substitute in a match against Luch. A couple of games later, he appeared in the starting lineup in the home match against FC Khimki and managed to score a goal and two assists. He was also a starter when the team won the 2008 Russian Cup final. In the round 13 game against bitter rivals Spartak Moscow, Dzagoev made three assists, helping CSKA to secure a 5–1 victory and since then he has become an undisputed member of the first eleven. Dzagoev was also the man of the match when he scored two goals in a 1–3 away victory against UEFA Cup winners Zenit Saint Petersburg.

At the end of the 2008 season, Dzagoev was chosen as Best Young Player of the Year by the Russian Football Union.[13]

In October 2008, it was reported that Real Madrid were interested in signing the player, but it was not confirmed. In 2008 season Dzagoev played 29 matches and scored 13 goals.

Dzagoev scored from a very tight angle during a Champions League match against Manchester United on 4 November 2009, which finished 3–3.,[14] and became one of the best player of this game. In 2009 season he played 40 matches and scored 10 goals.

On 2 December 2010, Dzagoev provided an assist for Sekou Oliseh and later added a cool finish as CSKA defeated Lausanne-Sports 5–1 in their penultimate group game, securing first place in Group F of the Europa League.[15] In the final group game against Sparta Prague on 15 December, Dzagoev scored the opening goal as CSKA dropped their first points of their European campaign, succumbing to a 1–1 draw.[16]

On 24 September 2011, Dzagoev scored the winning goal of a 3–1 Premier League victory over Volga Nizhny Novgorod.[17] Three days later, Dzagoev scored a 45th-minute goal against Internazionale and a later strike from Vágner Love put the hosts level, until a late goal from Mauro Zárate gave the Italians a 3–2 victory.[18] Dzagoev provided the cross from which CSKA debutant Pontus Wernbloom netted the equalizer in their 1–1 draw against Real Madrid in their first leg Round of 16 clash on 21 February 2012.[19] In 2012–13 CSKA won Russian Premier League title and Dzagoev became the best left midfielder.[20] In 2013/2014 season CSKA became the champion of Russian Premier League again and Dzagoev played 23 matches and scored 3 goals in all competitions.

The 2015–16 season became one of the best in his career. On 21 May 2016 in the last match of Premier League with Rubin Dzagoev scored the winning goal and CSKA won another Russian Premier League title.[21] In this season he played 43 matches, scores 8 goals and 11 assists in all club competitions.[22]

Dzagoev scored twice in the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League group stage, against Bayer Leverkusen[23] and Tottenham Hotspur though the Moscow club exited Europe at this stage.[24]

Having been sidelined with injury for much of 2017–18, Dzagoev returned to the CSKA side as a substitute in a Champions League match with FC Basel, scoring the goal at St. Jakob-Park.[25]

International career

After a string of impressive performances at club level, Dzagoev was called up to Russia squad for a 2010 World Cup qualification match against Germany scheduled for 11 October 2008.[26] He made his debut as a half-time substitute, at the age of 18 years and 116 days,[27] thus becoming the youngest outfield player ever to compete for Russia, and second youngest overall after goalkeeper and CSKA teammate Igor Akinfeev.[28] Dzagoev nearly earned the team a crucial away draw as he flicked the ball past Germany's goalkeeper René Adler, but hit the crossbar.[29]

After the game, Russia manager Guus Hiddink stated, "He's gelled into the team very well... Alan is a really clever player with the ability to make a killer pass and stretch the play. He proved that in Germany once again."[30] Dzagoev himself, however, being unhappy with the defeat, labeled his debut "a flop."[30]

He scored his first international goal on 8 October 2010 in a 2–3 away victory over the Republic of Ireland in the qualifying round of UEFA Euro 2012.[31] He was confirmed for the finalized squad for Euro 2012 on 25 May 2012.[32] Dzagoev scored two goals in Russia's opening game of the Euro 2012 tournament against the Czech Republic on 8 June 2012, a 4–1 victory,[33][34] in which he was named Man of the Match.[35] Dzagoev added his third goal of the tournament in his side's second game against Poland,[36] earning a 1–1 draw for his side.[37] With three goals scored, he finished the tournament as joint-top scorer, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Mario Gómez, Mario Balotelli, and Mario Mandžukić.

On 2 June 2014, he was included in Russia's squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup .[38] Dzagoev appeared as a substitute in all three of the team's matches as Russia were eliminated at the group stage.

Dzagoev was included in Russia's squad for UEFA Euro 2016; however he withdrew due to injury on 22 May 2016.[39] He was excluded from the nation's squad for the FIFA Confederations Cup exactly a year later, again with an injury.[40]

On 11 May 2018, he was included in Russia's extended 2018 FIFA World Cup squad.[41] On 3 June 2018, he was included in the finalized World Cup squad.[42] He featured in the opening match of the tournament against Saudi Arabia but was withdrawn through injury after just 24 minutes.[43] He recovered from injury to come on as a substitute in extra time against Croatia in the quarterfinals. He took a free kick that went brilliantly on to the head of Mariò Fernandes that was Russia's 2–2 equalizer with 5 minutes left to play in extra time. Dzagoev converted his shot in the eventual penalty shoot-out, but Russia lost to Croatia in the end of it.[44]

Style of play

Russia-Moldova (14)
Dzagoev in Russian colours, 2014

Dzagoev is a playmaker, who "enjoys playing behind the strikers".[28] His main position is on the left side of midfield.[20] However, he is versatile, having also played "on the right side of Russia's three-man attack" in their win over the Czech Republic at EURO 2012 in which Dzagoev scored two.[45]

In 2009, ESPN SoccerNet called Dzagoev "one of the hottest prospects on the continent", commenting that he is "quick, good in the air and with exceptional technical skills".[28] He has been recognised as the finest in the country in his position, being declared the best left-midfielder in 2013.[20] He was also named as Russia's "star man" by BBC Sport when they compiled their UEFA EURO 2012 team profiles.[46] When CSKA manager Leonid Slutsky was asked of Dzagoev following a goal against Tottenham Hotspur in 2016, he opined: "it's obvious Alan Dzagoev is one of the top players in the Russian league", adding that it was "not surprising that scouts were watching him and it will not be surprising if he continues his career in one of the top British clubs".[24] Shortly before the last round of international friendlies in the run-up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, The Guardian branded Dzagoev as one of "three Russia players with the capacity to harm top-level opponents".[47]
