Artem Kravets was raised in Dynamo football Academy. His first-team debut took place on June 17, 2007 in the match against Arsenal Kyiv.

In 2007 Kravets also made his debut in the Champions League match against Sporting FC. It was his first substitute appearance in European Cup matches. At that moment Kravets was only 18. Unfortunately Dynamo lost that game 3:0. Since 2008 the manager of our team Juryi Semin relied upon Artem regularly. On March 2, 2008 Artem netted his first goal in Ukrainian Premier League against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

Architect of his own fortunes

Artem Kravets could have become a doctor as his mother wanted. But playing football in the yard he was spotted by coach Dmytro Loik. Since that time Kravets attended training sessions.

Knowing that each of us is the architect of his own fortunes Artem left his native Dniprodzerzhynsk and came to Kyiv accompanied by his father. At that time he was only 13. The coach of Dynamo football school Olexandr Lysenko let Kravets play for Otradnoe team during several months. In half a year Artem entered Dynamo football Academy. Later Kravets played for Dynamo-2 during 2 years until he made the first-team debut. His dreams were coming true.

Too many injuries…

In the second part of 2007/08 season Kravets played in 11 matches for Dynamo and scored 3 goals. On February 26, 2009 Artem scored twice against Valencia in UEFA CUP Round of 16 match. This let Dynamo pass to the next stage. Later Kravets earned his first Ukraine call up. On February 8, 2011 he made a substitute appearance in the match against Romania.

Unfortunately Artem is being injured too often so he hasn’t shown his best qualities yet. Still in 2010/11 season Kravets opened the scoring in the match against Vorskla Poltava and scored twice against Volyn Lutsk. In June 2011 he represented Ukraine U21s on the European Under-21 Championship in Denmark. After that he was injured again.

Still coaches, teammates and fans rely upon Kravets and believe that his time will come.
