2019 World Cup (U-20): Danil Sikan's goal brings Ukraine to the semifinals of the tournament!
In the quarterfinal match of the World Junior Championship our team minimally beat rivals from Colombia.
Victory over the Panama team in the previous round allowed the blue and yellow to make their debut in the 1/4 finals of the World Cup. Compared to that duel, Alexander Petrakov made two changes - the place of Tsitaishvili was taken by Kashchuk, and at the gate instead called to the national team of Lunin Kucheruk appeared.
From the start of the duel, the Ukrainians began to sharply attack, which resulted in Kashchuk's blow to the plane and Buletsa's good moment. And in the 11th minute, Sikan led our team forward, taking advantage of a lack of understanding between the goalkeeper and the Colombian defender. This ball was the fourth in the Polish Mundial for Danil.
Rivals responded with inaccurate strikes by Angulo and Alvarado, and the second half of the first half was remembered by the Latinos' grudges, which earned four yellow cards. Shortly before the break after the corner, Bondar's head hit the target.
The second half was actively started by the Colombians, they owned the ball, but they did not bring any dividends. Instead, the blue-yellows got a good chance in the 63rd minute when Kornienko's shot was parried by a keeper, after which Victor gave a pass to Tsitaishvili and he did not hit the empty corner.
Towards the end of the main time the opponents became active. Hernandez and Carbonero scored with long shots, and Sandoval gave a very dangerous pass in the penalty area of Ukraine in the 81st minute. However, Colombia's offensive efforts ended there. And soon Latinos remained ten - for a foul against Popov got a straight red Carbonero. Unfortunately, Denis himself was injured and could not continue the fight.
As a result, the blue and yellow won another victory in the World Cup. Now on June 11, in Gdynia, they are vying for a ticket to the final with the winner of the match between the Italian and Mali teams.
