Ukraine's national football team will stand against the national team of Estonia. The Estonian team was able to secure victory in their qualifying group only once – in a match against Belarus. So this is a great opponent in a match where you want to use rotation.
And changes in the composition of blue and yellow will be mandatory. Malinovsky had a baby yesterday, Zinchenko and Moraes are getting treatment, Konoplyanka and Marlos are not in the best shape.
So the lack of pressure will have a big impact on our team. Inability to defeat Estonians will be unpleasant, but not fatal. However, after the victory over Portugal, it is impossible not to beat such an opponent.
"The team is good at defending, trying to build a way out of defense through transfers. It plays well in standard positions. We must be aware of the counterattacking. I think the audience in Zaporizhzhya will welcome us well. It is a big pleasure for us to come here, it is the first time team plays here, such a level. I think the fans will come," Andriy Shevchenko, the head coach of the national football team, stated.
Teams have played against each other four times. Ukrainian team was able to get a win in each of them. The last time Ukraine welcomed the Estonians in 2012, Ukrainian team defeated its opponent with a score of 4:0. It is noteworthy that Estonia has not been able to score a goal against Ukraine in all four matches.
As we reported earlier, Euro-2020 will be the third tournament in history for the national team of Ukraine. Previously, Ukrainians played at home Euro in 2012 and then went to France in 2016.
