Euro 2016: Ukrainian squad is not only Konoplyanka and Yarmolenko, - Konoplyanka
Midfielder shares his expectations of tournament
The midfielder of Ukrainian national team Yevhen Konoplyanka answers the questions about his expectations of the match and teamwork (football.ua).
"The team consists of 11 players on the field and seven on the bench. We have to be a united team above all. I would not say that Andriy and I are the leaders or stand out somehow. On the contrary, if the defenders didn’t steal the ball, we would not carry out our attacks. Of course, Andriy is a top-level football player, everyone knows that, but we are worthless without our partners. Ukrainian team is not only Konoplyanka and Yarmolenko", Konoplyanka answers the question about the fact that the Ukrainian national team is known, first and foremost, as a duet of Yarmolenko and Konoplyanka.
He also mentioned the weakest points of German national team.
"You probably know about the results of the German national team in friendly matches, especially of the defeat by Slovakia. This proves once again that we are able to compete with any team today. Believe me, we can get the law after even the Germans", he adds.
