Petr, Аndrei, Аleksandr & Nikolai

The years from the Great October Revolution (1917) to the end of the Great Patriotic War (1945)  saw football in the Soviet Union progressing in relative isolation. 
The Soviet Union did not join FIFA, and they did not participate in the Olympic Games.
On the domestic front national club competitions came into being in the mid 1930s. 
There were Spatrakaids and Workers Olympiads, but in terms of truly representative international football the Soviet Union was limited to a few friendlies which are considered unofficial.* 

On the Moscow football scene this was the era of the Starostin brothers. All 4 played forSpartak Moscow and the teams from which that great club evolved :



Nikolai started serious football at the age of 15 with Russian Gymnastic Society (РГО)
