Ukraine is not a blank slate in Europe. But in a major tournament it hasn’t worked yet. At Euro 2016, after three defeats against Germany, Poland and Northern Ireland, they went home without points and no goal. But in qualifying for this European Championship, you can easily qualify without defeat. They managed to remain undefeated against defending champions Portugal with a 0-0 win, a 2-1 win and secured first place in Group B. But this year, Ukraine was not satisfied with glory yet. In five matches, it ended up being 1:1 four times. Last Thursday, they kept a clean sheet and beat Northern Ireland 1-0. On Monday, a movie rehearsal took place Euro 2020 Nor against Cyprus. The goal again would be to not score a goal, and eventually to score over again. The attack by the Ukrainians is not exactly nameless.

The main players

Andriy Yarmolenko, from West Ham United, is probably best known from his guest appearances at Dortmund in Dortmund (2017-2018). In addition to the 32-year-old Yarmolenko, football fans are sure to be familiar with Oleksandr Zinchenko. Ukraine’s hope for the future plays on the left side of the defense of Manchester City, the champion of England, and is considered the favorite student of coach Pep Guardiola. Ruslan Malinovsky from Atalanta Bergamo also has enough experience to play in the spotlight in a major tournament. The 29-year-old midfielder is known for his dangerous long-range shots.

Points of strength and weakness

Ukraine is always good at scoring a goal. But the team has rarely managed to score more than one goal in recent times. In addition, there is still no success in the European Championship finals tournament. This time everything should be different than it was in the last EM. Andrei Yarmolenko, Roman Olegovich Yarimchuk and Oleksandr Zubkov are expected to score. The Ukrainian team is a compact and disciplined unit that is difficult to beat. A lot of patience is required for red, white and red. Running blind quickly can lead to disaster. However, Ukraine always has problems against large countries. 1:7 against France or 0:4 against Spain were the low points for Ukraine in 2020.
