“I always dreamed to someday star in a movie about football. I played
football, and wanted to be a footballer — shared the actor. But to play the Streltsov I don’t even
dreamed of! This is the same man about whom I was told as a child
father. His life and fate is an amazing story of overcoming, because
20 years he had it all: love, money, limitless possibilities
popularity all over the Soviet Union, and all the chances to become a great player
known all over the world. But, unfortunately, the system broke, and the world about him and
do not know. But, more importantly, he was able to come back and win. And I really want
