Well, that long-awaited day has come. Today the Ukrainian national team will play the first match of its group. Our guys have a very serious rival - the Dutch national team. Frank de Boer's wards are not on the list of the main favorites of the Euro, but the “orange” have a lot of players of the highest level, capable of solving the highest problems.
But money does not play football, and the Ukrainian national team, although not in the most successful way, spent the spring segment. And even against more eminent rivals, Ukrainians are trying to play their own football. With Spain and France, this has borne fruit. So, we are approaching today's fight with optimism. Although even a defeat will not exclude the Ukrainians from the candidates to qualify for the group.
Goalkeepers: Bushchan, Pyatov, Trubin
Defenders: Sobol, Kryvtsov, Zabarny, Mykolenko, Karavaev, Matvienko, Tymchik, Popov

Forwards: Yaremchuk, Besedin, Dovbik
The Ukrainians will play in blue T-shirts today. The hosts will dress in traditional orange colors.
