September 6, 21.45 Kyiv time
Ukraine and the Czech Republic crossed swords on Thursday night, as UEFA Nations League kicked off.
Andriy Shevchenko's men face a tough opponent; besides, it starts with the away game for Yellow-Blues, which is even tougher.
Not long before the game started, a trouble with the lights occurred. That resulted in the match being re-scheduled for 10 p.m., fifteen minutes later from the original time.
As of early first half, the Czechs have been leading the way already.
'The Czechs are very strong. But if we show some decent football and complete the mission assigned by the managers, we will prevail', Ukraine's winger Andriy Yarmolenko said before the game. The West Ham midfielder added that 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.
