Rinat Dassayev was a great goalkeeper, his coolness under pressure and safe handling gives confidence to his defence. He has a knack of always being in the right place at the right time. He was one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the world, as during 1986 he was regarded as being one of the world’s greatest goalkeeper’s. Dassayev started his career playing for his local team, Volga Astrakhan in the second division. He played as a centre forward and then decided to become a goalkeeper, because the regular goalkeeper of that team was frequently injured. He then went onto become the goalkeeper of Spartak Moscow, one of the top Russian football clubs. He made his international debut in 1979 a game which USSR beat East Germany 1- 0.

Dassayev went on to play for USSR in the Olympics in 1980, where the Soviet team reached third place. However his reputation was really enhanced during both the 1982 and 1986 world cup tournaments. In the World cup, he has played a total of 8 games and has only conceded 9 goals, that it only just over 1 goal a game, which is an extremely impressive record. He made some excellent goalkeeping displays in the 1986 world cup in their games against Canada and France. After the 1986 World cup, he was still in top form for the Soviet’s and for his club Spartak Moscow. At the 1988 European championships, Dassayev was outstanding for the Soviets, making some brilliant saves, and despite the Soviets losing 2- 0 in the final to Holland, he made a hatful of excellent saves and denied Gullit and Van Basten from scoring more goals.

Dassayev also played in the 1990 world cup finals in Italy; he captained USSR in their opening game against Romania.

Rinat Dasaev, described by many as the finest goalkeeper of the 1980′s, was born in Astrakhan, on the Caspian Sea and played for his home town club until the age of 21, until the day Spartak Moscow arrived to play a friendly. Renat Dasaev’s performance that day was good enough to persuade Spartak Moscow to sign him immiediately; had it not been for that chance friendly, Dasaev’s talents may have run their course in that desolate outpost.

From the outset of the following season, Dasaev was promoted to first choice goalkeeper for both Spartak, and the Soviet national side. The Russian muslim always carried a copy of the koran on to the pitch with him and placed it in his goal.

By 1982, Dasaev was earning plaudits world wide for his performances during the World Cup in Spain, the highlight of which was probably a save from Scotland’s Joe Jordan which was simply magnificent; shifting his body weight quickly to turn the point-blank header to safety.

Very slim for a goalkeeper, Dasaev relied heavily on his superb reflexes, rather than trying to claim crosses against heavier and more powerful opponents.

In 1986, Dasaev participated in the World Cup in Mexico, the Soviet Union losing out to Belgium 4-3 in the second round, which was widely regarded as one of the greatest world cup matches ever played.

In the years, 1982, 1983, 1985 and 1988 Renat Dasaev was voted the world’s best goalkeeper, which is a special achievement, only the great Lev Yashin, another Russian, surpassed this feat, voted the best on six occasions.

The form of Renat Dasaev continued in an upward arc until 1988, when again in the European championships his performances peaked, helping the Soviet Union to the final where they met the Dutch, and in particular the unsurpassable Marco Van Basten. The Soivet Union held out for a long time, and even missed a penalty, but eventually succumbed to first Ruud Gullit, and then to a memorable Van Basten volley from an acute angle.

During the season following the Chamionship, Dasaev transferred to Sevilla in Spain, and found his new surroundings difficult to adjust to, missing his homeland, his form deteriorated until 1990 when he was axed from the Soviet team and replaced by Alexandr Uvarov.

Despite a relatively sad ending to his career, Dasaev will be remembered for an outwardly frail appearance but an astonishing ability to produce saves that would seem impossible.

Dasaev was the second most capped Soviet player of all time with 91 Caps spanning eleven years from 1979 through to the 1990 World Cup.

I'd say that his DEF can be raised to 97. Positioning is his most important value in the game.
