, and the player of the Russian national team began his way at football at the age of five. His father also once played football, but only at the institute. In general, Golovin's dad used to be a miner, and now he is a pensioner. His Mom is an accountant.
In Kaltan, the snow melts only by June, so for 8-9 months a year, the players train in the gym. Hence, Golovin has good futsal skills. His first coach Alexander Plyasunov said that by the age of ten the boy could perform shots with both legs, which is rare.
When Golovin was 10, he and his parents came to the training ground at "Spartak", but they didn’t take the boy. They insisted that the boarding school was taking players head and shoulders above him. Golovin, of course, was upset because in childhood he supported the red and white team, and one of his childhood teams was even called "Spartak". Alexey Smertin, being the vice-president of "Lokomotiv", also refused to take Golovin because of his physical data.
At the age of 13, Golovin was promoted to the Novokuznetsk "Metallurg-Zapsib" and the Olympic Reserve School in Leninsk-Kuznetsk. Father took the future Russian star to Metallurg by car. It took him an hour to get to Novokuznetsk and an hour back. Meanwhile, the dad waited patiently for his son to finish training.
The midfielder does not forget his origins and helps those who raised him. Not far from Kaltan, a mini-football tournament for Golovin's prizes is annually held. The midfielder provides both trophies and medals.
Moreover, the player himself comes to Kaltan to present awards to the winners. Golovin also regularly brings balls and uniforms, so in Kaltan one can easily meet a man wearing a T-shirt with the CSKA logo (and soon - Monaco).
For the first time, Russia heard about Golovin in 2013, when Dmitry Khomukha's U-17 junior team won the European Championship. At that time the team consisted of three CSKA players: Golovin, Alexander Makarov and Anatoly Nikolaesh. Two years later, the same team reached the Euro (U-19) final but lost to Spain.
In 2015, Fabio Capello decided to surprise the audience and called two CSKA players to the Russian national team, who at that time were hardly considered reserve players. It was Golovin and Nikita Chernov. The future quarter-finalist of the World Cup came on as a substitute in the match with Belarus instead of Roman Shirokov and scored a goal in the debut match. Golovin just turned 19.
