Rinat Dasayev

Rinat Fayzrakhmanovich Dasayev (Russian: Ринат Файзрахманович Дасаев , Tatar: Rinat Fäyzeraxman ulı Dasayev ; born June 13, 1957) is a Russian former football goalkeeper, who played in three World Cups with the Soviet national team. He is considered the second best Russian goalkeeper ever behind Lev Yashin,[1] and one of the best in the world in the 1980s. He was awarded the title of the World’s Best Goalkeeper of the Year award in 1988 by the IFFHS. In 2004, he was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers.

Dasayev, nicknamed "The Iron Curtain" and "The Cat", was a goalkeeper for the Russian football club Spartak Moscow during most of the 1980s. He won the Soviet championship in 1979 and 1987 and was named Best Soviet Goalkeeper by Ogonyok (Огонëк) magazine in 1980, 1982, 1983, 1985, 1987, 1988. In 1982 he was named Soviet Footballer of the Year. Dasayev played for the Soviet national team at the 1980 Summer Olympics, winning the bronze medal. He appeared in the 1982, 1986 and 1990 FIFA World Cups, as well as the Euro 88 (where the Soviet Union lost the final and Dasayev was powerless to stop Marco van Basten's legendary volley). In total, he was capped 91 times from 1979 to 1990, being the second-most capped player ever for the Soviet Union.

After his contract ran out with the Spanish club Sevilla FC in the early 1990s, Dasayev retired from the sport.

He was appointed as the 2008 UEFA Champions League Final Ambassador.
