- Kravets has spent his career playing for Dynamo, first for their youth teams and since 2005 for Dynamo-2 as well. Since 2005 for Dynamo-2?! That guy only turns 20 in June... WTF?! Yes, believe it or not, at the age of 16, Kravets already played in the 2nd Ukrainian Division gaining professional experience.
Even though not making big impact, Kravets showed his talent which led to a spot in Dynamo's senior squad in 2007/08 after Yuriy Semin had become head coach. Since then, Kravets has made constant positive progress proving Semin right in his decision to make him a first team member at the age of 18.
In this year's UEFA Cup, Kravets star shone brightly when his brace in the 2nd leg against Valencia secured Dynamo's spot in the quarterfinals on away goals.
Kravets is another rather untypical tall player. His main asset, believe it or not, is his incredible speed! He has unbelievably quick and huge first steps which allow him to outpace his opponents with ease and his great top speed keeps them distanced. He can even keep up this speed on-ball which makes his speed an even bigger danger. Another unusual asset of his is his dribbling. Kravets has great control of the ball and is able to twist and turn through a defence without problems. Just ask Valencia's defenders before he made it 1-0 for Dynamo in the 2nd leg. They can surely tell!
Despite his young age, Kravets is already quite a predator. If he gets the chance, it's mostly in. His fine shot technique and accuracy as well as his heading combined with a good instinct for the situation make him a danger to every defence which has to play him. Furthermore can he withstand physical challenges quite well though being only 73kg which is, honestly speaking, not much for a guy who is 185cm tall.
Before showing the stats, I want to show you an example of his incredible speed, displayed in Dynamo's 4-0 victory over Dnipro last season. Watch the guy who is in the top right corner at 0:39 secs closely! That's Kravets!
