Fedor's Childhood and Early Upbringing

Fedor (Fyodor) Smolov was born on Febuary 9, 1990, in Saratov, southwest Russia. Being the only child to his parents, Fedor was raised with great care. Mikhail and Irinia would carefully raise their son in the crime-ridden neighborhood they lived in, unaware of how great their son would be. 

Fedor's father, Mikhail, had a great passion for soccer and wanted his son to have a promising career in football. Although he was interested in football, Fedor didn't want to play it in Saratov. He was aiming for something bigger, the national capital.

Due to finance, many complications arose for Fedor, and he could not join his dream club to play. He was forced to play in Saratov (Sokol Saratov FC). Without a doubt, the youth could not play without having a heart for the game. Mikhail started to believe his son was not fit for football after Fedor failed his exams at 14. 

Mikhail made a final attempt to convince his son to take up another examination, this time for a different club. Fedor passed the test for the Master Saturn club playing in the Moscow region. It was here that the youth finally started to show promise.
