In Saint-Denis, the French national football team hosted Ukraine in a friendly match.
Over the course of the match, the Yellow-Blues were not able to do anything against their opponents, showcasing a lack of speed, precision, and an ability to adapt. As a result, a 7:1 victory for the French team.
It is worth noting that this defeat was the most devastating in the history of the national team of Ukraine. Previously, it had not lost by more than four goals.
Prior to that match, Oleksandr Shovkovsky, the seasoned veteran who ended his professional football career in 2016, was included in the team's line-up. Such a decision was forced by the loss of two goalkeepers who tested positive for Covid-19.
Ukraine's next match is scheduled for this Saturday, October 10. This time the team will face its German counterparts.
As we reported earlier, Elina Svitolina and Nadia Podoroska met in the quarterfinals of the Roland Garros tournament.
The Argentinian defeated the world's No.5 from Ukraine in two sets (6:2, 6:4).
