Ukraine's national football team intends to make it to Euro 2020 group stage, earning this success by claiming enough points in the upcoming UEFA Nations League; Andriy Yarmolenko, the winger of the West Ham United and the national team said this in his commentary for 'Komanda No.1' outlet.

'We'll be struggling to make it to the finals of Euro. It's the national team, and it doesn't matter whether this is a friendly or the official fixture. You play for your country and for your fans, so we'll contribute every effort for the victory. The Czechs are very strong. But if we show some decent football and complete the mission assigned by the managers, we will prevail', he said.

Earlier, the Federation of Football of Ukraine presented the new official kits of this country's national team.
