Vsevolod BOBROV

Vsevolod Bobrov

Date of birth: 1 December 1922 (died: 1 July 1979)

Vsevolod Bobrov is a former Soviet athlete, who excelled in both football and ice hockey. He is considered one of the best Russians ever in both of those sports.

After serving in the Soviet Army during World War II, Bobrov was invited to play football for the Army club, CDKA Moscow, in 1945. Playing until 1953 for CDKA, VVS, and Spartak, he would go on to win the Soviet Championship three times, scoring 97 goals in only 116 games. Bobrov led the country in goals in 1945 with 24 and 1947 with 14.

In 1945, Vsevolod was a guest player for Dinamo Moscow's tour of Great Britain, and drew rave reviews after scoring six goals as the Russian club played such teams as Chelsea, Arsenal, and Rangers. He was capped five times for the Soviet Union national team, scoring three goals, and played in the 1952 Summer Olympics.
