Russia completed a highly successful round of international football for the nation on Sunday when they defeated Cyprus 5-0 just a few days after humbling Scotland with a 4-0 victory.

Cheryshev was the star of the show in their second fixture as he had a hand in four of their five goals, scoring two and assisting another two.

His goals were the first and fifth of the match. He opened the scoring after showing his explosive pace down the wing to smash a strike past the goalkeeper from a tight angle, and then rounded off the Russian victory in the last minute of normal time with a squeezed finish in off the post.

A provider, too, he recorded his first assist by superbly keeping a move alive for the visitors by recovering the ball to the left of the goalline before laying into the path of Magomed Ozdoev. His second was much more routine but no less effective, as he whipped a perfect cross into the box from the left wing, with Artem Dzuyba making no mistake in heading home.

He also had 12 touches in the opposition box and provided ammunition for his team-mates with 13 crosses into the area.
