As Ukraine's national team successfully performs in UEFA Nations League - at least so far, it is to stand up against Italy. The Yellow Blues and the Squaddra Azzurra will play a friendly at Luigi Ferrari arena in Genoa.

Shevchenko's men successfully defeated their first opponents in the Nations League, beating the Czechs and the Slovaks. Ukraine might just as well continue with the victorious march, as Roberto Mancini is in the complicated position at the moment, trying to rebuild the squad and improve the team chemistry. After all, Italians have not tasted victory since spring.

At this current point, Italy might be quite a beatable opponent for Ukraine - provided the Yellow Blues show the same shape and teamwork they did in the UEFA Nations League games. If it goes well for Ukrainians, they could even score their first-ever victory over the 2006 world champions.
