Henrihs Kacēns, (45300108) is a former Latvian U-20 international player. His position is scorer and he is infamous for his aggressiveness on and off the field. Since the age of 17 he is playing for Teika Hackers. He is a clear favourite for Teika Hackers fans and most hated player elsewhere.

Early life

Henrihs started his career in a lower league team LB2 where he was spotted by the scouts of Teika Hackers and FK Jumanji. Both teams went on bidding war and finally Henrihs was transfered to Teika Hackers for 1 421 000 Lats (2 842 000 Euros).

National U20 team

At the age of 20 he was included in Latvian U-20 team. He made his debut on 02.09.2005 and played a total of 11 games, scoring 3 goals.

Achievements with Teika Hackers

Henrihs has enjoyed most of Teika Hackers success in Latvian league. He joined fairly average III. league team and helped his team to lift 2 league trophies and a national cup. Next season he helped Teika Hackers to return to top division and to reach Hattrick Masters semifinals where he shared 2nd to 6th place in top scorers table with 7 goals.

Breaking the legs

Henrihs is not only a great goal scorer but also an uncompromising team player. His work rate and aggressive tackling has paid off in some games and he has rarely let down his own team. Most famous incident is match against FK Mayertown (04.02.2006) when Henrihs made a nasty tackle which caused injuries for the two highest skilled players off the opponent team, which had to leave the field. Henrihs only received a yellow card, but was later revenged by opponents and also had to leave the pitch.
