Gorbunov was the one who opened the score. Poltava responded with Kane's accurate kick from the penalty spot at the end of the regular time. When the game approached the penalty shootout, Vorskla coach Yuriy Maksimov put a 16-year-old goalkeeper Pavel Isenko in the match. And the debutant shined under the bright lights, having repulsed blows of Kulakov, Ignatenko, and Kornienko.
FC Vorskla will now face Dynamo Kyiv FC that reached the final a week earlier, beating FC Minaj. The final match of the Ukrainian Cup will take place in Lviv on July 8.
It is worth noting that Vorskla Poltava won the Ukrainian Cup in 2009.
As we reported earlier, Croatia’s national football team’s defender Josip Pivaric is not going to renew his contract with Dynamo Kyiv FC.
After the end of the contract, Pivaric will return to Zagreb's Dynamo as a free agent. He came to Dynamo Kyiv from Zagreb in 2017 and played 22 matches for the Kyivites.
