Russian Premier Liga outfit Krylya Sovetov Samara have announced the signing of veteran Czech Republic striker Jan Koller from relegated German club Nurnberg.
Koller has signed an 18-month contract with the Samara-based club, who currently lie sixth in the Russian Premier Liga and will team up with fellow countryman and former-Celtic midfielder Jiri Jarosik on the shores of the Volga.
Thirty-five-year-old Koller featured in all three of the Czech Republic's Euro 2008 matches, netting a goal in the dramatic 3-2 defeat to Turkey that saw the Czechs eliminated.
Koller had announced prior to the finals that he would retire from international football after the tournament.
Russia is the latest leg in Koller's varied career, which has included spells in his native Czech Republic, Belgium, France and Germany, most famously with Borussia Dortmund, where he scored an impressive 59 goals in 138 appearances between 2001 and 2006.
Koller's move could spark the beginning of an exodus from Nurnberg, who were relegated to the German 2.Bundesliga last season, with Greek striker Angelos Charisteas, Russian Ivan Saenko and Slovak Robert Vittek all candidates to leave.
A late equaliser from Fred secured a 1-1 draw for an off-colour Brazil in its match against Russia at Stamford Bridge.
