Ukraine’s squad is approaching the starting match against Germany in a good mood. Yevhen Konoplyanka told this during an interview with UEFA.com.
“It could not have been otherwise. We remind each other that there are no Dynamo, Shakhtar, Dnipro and Zorya anymore. We all have to back together against our rival, to behave like a real family and to support each other when the chips are down. Personally I enjoy our team”, Konoplyanka says.
According to him, the defense strategy is the most important quality of the Yellow Blues.
“If we keep the gates shut, we will find a chance to win. When our opponents can’t do anything to break through they start getting nervous, fussing, losing confidence, and we in turn are ready to use any opportunity to hit the target. But even if there won’t be such an opportunity, 0:0 is also a good result”, midfielder says.
Konoplyanka said he was sure that even in the match against Germany, Ukraine will have its chances to achieve a positive result.
