The national team of Ukraine on football in Zagreb will host the fifth match of the qualifying round for the 2018 world Cup.
For coach of the “blue-yellow” Andriy Shevchenko, the upcoming match will be the first major test, and this test team are looking in to the status of outsider. One has only to look at the list of players representing Croatia. Modric, Rakitic, Mandzukic, kalinic, Piata all these players represent prominent European clubs, and not just a number in the squad, and are key performers.
Than meets the national team of Ukraine? Overstayers in the “Dynamo” Andrey Yarmolenko, deep reservist Schalke Konoplyanka, recently recovered from injury Kravets, and numerous players of Shakhtar, who, it seems, after a departure from League of Europe is not enough motivation for the matches of the championship of Ukraine, which cannot but affect their readiness for the important fights.
Autumn qualifiers for the national team has played the same starting lineup. Today this is impossible, since the left defender Eduard Sobol misses the match through suspension. Most likely, the player is “Dawn” the Foundation will replace the absolute debutant of a national team Nikolay Matvienko. Unlikely from the first minute on the field will appear and Oleksandr Zinchenko, lost his place in the rotation “PSV”. The graduate of Shakhtar in the basis can be replaced Ruslan rotan, Maksym Malyshev and Serhiy sydorchuk. At the point of attack speed looks preferable Artem Kravets, able to break on the counter. The emergence of Yevhen Seleznyov is expected in the second half.
The national team of Ukraine is very important to survive the first 15 or 20 minutes. The Croats, with the support of a crowded arena from the first minutes will rush forward in search of early goals. No mistakes in defence, active pressure and quality output to the counter are the three components, with the successful combination of which “blue-yellow” can count on the positive outcome of his visit to Zagreb.
