The national team of Ukraine in Antalya with a friendly against Turkey will close the year 2018.
Devastating defeat of the Ukrainian team in the final match of the League of Nations against Slovakia (1:4) at first glance was a big failure. The team of Andrey Shevchenko ahead of schedule left in the League and could afford a few bold experiments that the coaching staff would never have dared at another tournament situation.
Friendly match with Turkey is a great chance to further test the nearest reserve of the main command of the country and those who are already knocking on the first team. It is expected that in Antalya the list of debutants of the national team supplemented by a few names – the first to take the field in blue and yellow shirt of the national team Marjan the Swede, Alexander One and Vitaly Nikolenko.
In comparison with the match against Slovakia in the team there are a few changes – returned main striker Roman Yaremchuk, but due to injury lost Shevchenko and Serhiy Kryvtsov, while the participation in the match Mykyta Burda is in question.
Ukraine and Turkey today will hold the ninth official match. In personal meetings advantage on the side of Mircea Lucescu’s team – four wins, two draws and two defeats.
Turkey: Bolat – Çelik, Ayhan, Seungju, Bayram – Tekdemir, Yokuslu – Ozyakup, Under, Malli – Tosun
Ukraine: Lunin – Karavaev, One, Matvienko, Mikolenko – Makarenko, Malinowski Swede, Linnet, Shaparenko – Yaremchuk
