It is Henrik Mkhitaryan, the Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder, who currently can lay claim to being Armenia's finest talent, but if we take that as certain, then Spartak Moscow striker Yura Movsisyan is probably second in line.
And in Russian football's biggest game of the season so far, the 26-year-old—something of a late bloomer—helped himself to a perfect hat-trick as improving Spartak beat leaders Zenit St. Petersburg 4-2.
It continued the powerful striker's excellent recent goalscoring run, which has seen him score in eight of his last nine matches for club and country, a run featuring 10 goals.
The match itself at the Stadion Lokomotiv was a spectacular affair, and both it and the role played by Movsisyan typified his explosive on-field demeanour. (Find the goals on YouTube here.)
Movsisyan was booked inside a minute for deliberate handball and then saw Aleksandr Kerzhakov hand Zenit a lead after six minutes. Brazilian Hulk should have doubled that advantage, but for the second time in a week, he struck a miserable penalty.
Until that point, Luciano Spalletti's men had dominated proceedings, but then Spartak, and particularly Movsisyan, took control.
A 32nd-minute corner from Denis Glushakov was clipped to the near post, and then the Armenian met it with a deft flick that saw the ball go past keeper Yuri Lodygin and in off the far post.
If that goal showcased subtlety, Movsisyan's 44th minute drive—a fizzing low drive into the bottom corner—did anything but, giving the hosts the lead.
Nonetheless, Movsisyan saved the best for last three minutes after the break: Tino Costa's left-footed strike deflected into his path, and taking it for the first time on the half-volley, he sidefooted with his weaker right foot into the top corner—the kind of composed, unerring finish befitting a man in form.
Movsisyan would be replaced in the 58th minute by ex-Dortmund man Lucas Barrios after picking up an injury, but this striking display—part of a performance full of hard running and clever link play—meant that the day belonged to Armenia's second in command.
If he continues having days like this, don't back against Valery Karpin's side having their say in the destination of the Russian title for the first time since 2001.
