Russia World Cup squad star Andrey Yeshchenko involved in crazy high-speed crash

Andrey Yeshchenko, who plays for Kuban Krasnodar on loan from Anzhi Makhachkala, was captured crashing a sports car into a pole at 105 miles per hour.

Andrew Yeshchenko may not be a household name when it comes to Russian football, but the 31-year-old could have made a name for himself online after a video chronicling his latest crazy car crash was posted on YouTube.

Capped by Russia on 12 occasions and part of the squad Fabio Capello took to the World Cup in Brazil last summer, the left-back featured in two of the national side’s three group games.

Yeshchenko is currently on loan at Kuban Krasnodar and has enjoyed a nomadic career to date.

Previously with Dynamo Kyiv, Dinamo Moscow and Lokomotiv Moscow among others, the defender showed some speed of an altogether different kind this week.

In a video posted online by LIFE NEWS, the defender is shown driving what appears to be a sports car, at noticeably high speed.

It’s claimed that Yeshchenko reached around 105 miles per hour in the clip, before colliding with what can only be described as an electricity pylon.

The impact is as catastrophic as you would imagine, with bits of the Russian’s no doubt prized car exploding in all directions.

Fortunately, the footage also shows movement in and around the wreckage, with Yeshchenko seemingly able to walk away from the high-speed smash up.

We think the car may be a write-off, though.
