Euro 2021 Ukraine
Probable Likely Team Selections & Players Involved For:
Turkey Italy Wales Switzerland Denmark Finland Belgium Russia Netherlands Ukraine Austria North Macedonia England Croatia Scotland Czech Republic Spain Sweden Poland Slovakia Hungary Portugal France Germany
Andriy Pyatov will lead his country out at Euro 2020 as the Ukraine captain
Goals For: 17 Goals Against: 4
Key player: Andriy Yarmolenko
Ukraine’s current top marksman (only Shevchenko, on 48, has more), Yarmolenko remains his side’s main creative threat despite being short on first-team football at West Ham.
One to watch: Viktor Tsygankov
The Dynamo man has tough competition, as Yarmolenko and Marlos can both fill his favoured position on the Ukraine right wing, yet he continues to carve out a niche.
Ukraine Best Players Picks:
Despite only scoring one goal with no assists in his last 10 caps, I like the look of Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi. He or captain Andriy Yarmolenko are first in line for the spot kicks, and it looks more likely to be the former, after Yarmolenko missed the last Ukranian penalty when Malinovskyi wasn’t on the pitch.
Set-piece specialist Malinovskyi has 8 goals and 12 assists for Atalanta in the Serie A this season, leading the charts for assists in the Serie A, whilst only beaten by Thomas Muller for most assists per 90 in the top five European divisions.
He also comes into the Euros in brilliant form, as he as seven goals and nine assists in his last 11 appearances. He was involved in the most goals in qualifying, with three goals and four assists in eight starts.
Coach: Andriy Shevchenko
Legendary striker Andriy Shevchenko has made an impressive start to life as a manager
