Valentin Kozmich Ivanov (Russian: Валентин Козьмич Иванов, 19 November 1934 – 8 November 2011[2]) was a Soviet-Russian footballer who played as a winger or as a forward. He was the co-leading scorer at the 1962 World Cup, and the co-1960 European Nations' Cup top scorer.[1]

Ivanov appeared 59 times for the Soviet Union, scoring 26 goals.[3] He is the Soviet national football team's third-highest goalscorer of all time, behind only Oleg Blokhin and Oleg Protasov. One of finest Russian players, Ivanov was noted for his pace, dribbling quality and technical ability.

Ivanov's four goals in the 1962 World Cup saw him named the tournament's top-scorer, along with five other players;[1] he also scored two in the 1958 edition. He spent most of his club career with Torpedo Moscow, scoring 124 goals in 286 appearances in the Soviet Championship, the 9th all-time best record.

Personal life

Ivanov married Lidiya Ivanova, an Olympic champion in gymnastics in 1956 and 1960. Their son, also named Valentin (born 1961), is a retired international football referee.[1]

Death

Ivanov died on 8 November 2011, shortly before his 77th birthday, following a long struggle with Alzheimer's disease.[4]
