The Russians not only noted the level of progress of the Dnipro-1 forward, but also complained about the average class of their players.
"Just tears it up, handsome! And I also like the fact that he is not only good as a tip, but that he is a very versatile striker.", "The best player in the post-Soviet space this season, no matter how much I love Golovin, but Dovbyk is really the best.", "He went to an unremarkable club and proved himself there. And if you listen to our players, they immediately think of Real Madrid and Man City", "Their players were brighter than Shevchenko, and now. They play in Europe, and we have Golovin who is one for all." "And imagine if he makes it to the Euros, he'll be a contender for the World Cup?" people write in the comments.
It should be noted that after scoring a hat-trick against Sevilla, Artem moved to the top of the list of the Spanish league's top scorers, which he shares with Real Madrid's rising star Jude Bellingham.
