It's the first time that U20 national football team of Ukraine made to the final of the World Cup. Ukrainians will stand against the team of South Korea. 112 International offers the audience to meet some of the heroes of the Ukrainian team, whose careers will be of interest even after the World Cup.
Vyacheslav Supriaha, Dynamo Kyiv, 19 years old
The entire tournament, one of the fastest talents of Ukraine, was mostly invisible. It seemed the forward would spend the whole world championship on the bench. But in the final match against South Korea, the action of Supriaha brought results to the team. First, he picked up the ball in someone else's penalty and shot past the keeper, and then he scored one-on-one. He showed his speed several times, but was replaced afterwards.
Serhiy Buletsa, Dynamo Kyiv, 20 years old
One of the top scorers of the team. The attacking midfielder who scored three goals and two assists during the team's performance in this Cup. It was his shot that made it possible for Ukraine to defeat Italy in the semifinal game. The young man is quite an ambitious person, whose favorite player is Lionel Messi. 'I'd like to match his level. If they call me a star one day, it'll be up to fans and coaches, not to me.
Denys Popov, Dynamo Kyiv, 20 years old
Another top scorer whose contribution to the victorious march of the team made three goals. He appeared in the starting eleven of the Yellow-Blues - until he received two yellow cards in the game with Italy, which means he is to skip the final. But that does not diminish his value for the team.
Heorhii Tsitaishvili, Dynamo Kyiv, 18 years old
Another football player from Dynamo Kyiv. He is considered one of the most promising players of Ukraine. In the World Cup, he played in four matches and made one goal pass. In Kyiv, he came out in several matches of an adult team, where showed himself as a technical and intelligent player. “While I'm young, I want to improve myself. I train, train and train again because I know it's necessary. I hope to improve my individual characteristics, but now, during the World Cup, I only work in the team.”
Danylo Sikan, Shakhtar Donetsk/Mariupol, 18 years old
Sikan started the world championship in the reserve, but at the end of the group stage, he showed his best and became the top goal-scorer not only of our team, but also of the entire championship. If the Norwegian Elring Haland did not score 9 goals in the match with Honduras, Sikan would be the first top scorer of the World Cup.
Andriy Lunin, Real Madrid/Leganés, 20 years old
The main star of our team and the World Cup. There are not many players in the tournament in Poland, who have signed a contract with one of the best football clubs in the world. During the championship, he managed to get to the adult team of Ukraine, where he is still gaining experience with senior partners. He has allowed only four goals in the whole tournament.
