Oleg Anatolyevich Salenko is a former soccer player from Russia who played as a striker in the national team. His career began in 1986. He went into the FIFA World Cup in the year 1994, despite having never scored a single international goal. Prior to that year, he had a solitary cap for Russia for his name. In the most striking tournament of his life, he began his journey of goals with his first one against Sweden. Then, he scored five goals past Cameroon whom Russia defeated by 6-1, a record in the group stage of the tournament. Russia couldnt progress past the groups. However, Salenko’s astonishing performance won him the Golden Boot. Shockingly, Russia never picked him again in his career, which lasted till 2000.
