Childhood and adolescence
From early childhood, little Andrew, who was born on November 13, 1991 in Moscow, did not part with the football. Therefore, the parents had no choice but to take their son to the futsal section. At first, the boy was identified as a field player, but when he stood at the gate, everyone saw that Andryusha was a born goalkeeper.

In it, Andrey mastered the main goalkeeper skills: getting out of the goal, playing with hands, jumping and rolling.The idol of his childhood was the German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn.
At the age of ten, Lunev decided to leave futsal and try his strength on a large field. He moved to the sports school at Torpedo Moscow, and three years later he became a player in the back-up club. By the time the Avtozavodtsev team flew out of the Premier League and moved to the Second Division.

This is not the best way influenced the reputation of the athlete, and Lunev was "exiled", first in the Moscow region "Istra", and then in "Kaluga".
