Notes - Ultra rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Garaschenko in the 2000 UEFA European Championship Qualification Group 1 match against Switzerland  played at Dinamo Stadion in Minsk on the 27th March 1999. Belarus were still searching for their first win of the qualification campaign having previously drawn with Denmark at home and narrowly lost out to Wales in Cardiff. The match was a cagey affair as the side suffered defeat yet again after falling behind to a second half goal from Sevette midfielder Sébastien Fournier. Geraschenko started the game but was subbed off with 5 minutes to play after receiving a caution as the home side searched for late equaliser. The game tying goal never came, the match ended 1-0 in favor of the Swiss and the Belorussian's uphill battle to qualify for Euro 2000 grew steadily steeper. Geraschenko played 19 times for the national side between 1997 and 2004.
