Euro 2020. Ukraine's national team effectively defeated Serbia and continues to lead the selection team!

The result of the match in Lviv was perhaps one of the most significant victories in the history of Ukraine. The Blue and Yellows demonstrated a well-established team game and gained an important result, confidently beating a strong opponent who had not lost eight fights before.

From the first minutes, the teams began to fight for the initiative, which resulted in both teams resorting to high pressure. But the debut still remained behind the Ukrainians. The hosts created sharpness ahead of the clear combination action, which ended with strikes Zinchenko (twice) and Yaremchuk, but they were all blocked. The Serbs responded with a dangerous attempt by Prijevic, who failed to hit the goal.

Towards the middle of the half, the visitors adjusted their control of the ball, but the clear actions of the blue-yellows in defense did not allow the potentially dangerous situations at the Pyatov gate to turn into really fatal ones. But the hosts, showing a clear structure of the game in the attack, built their offensive combinations and regularly approached the possessions of Dmitrievich - and eventually reached their own. Malinowski gave Karavaev, the defender passed with the ball forward and shot into the center of the penalty area, where Tsigankov ran. Victor's downstroke was unbearable. 1: 0. Two minutes passed when Yaremchuk seized the ball in the center of the field from Kolarov and made an excellent pass to Tsygankov, who from outside the penalty box hit the far top corner. 2: 0. Great performance of the dynamic, who perfectly replaced in the starting squad of Marlos, who did not have time to get the necessary conditioning.

The successes of Andriy Shevchenko's team continued to attack and by the end of the first half created a number of chances, but they were no longer lucky.

The start of the second half gave the hosts even more optimism. Again the middle line of the blue and yellows worked fine: Malinowski passed with the ball and gave to Konoplyanka, and Eugene delivered his firm shot from outside the penalty area into the far corner, making the score 3-0. But this too seemed to Ukrainian collectors. The game was given to them, the opponent looked lost, so they continued to weave their combinations. And, as a result, Yaremchuk formalized his first goal for the national team, punching well in the touch after Karavaev's flank shot. And then his second goal was scored by Konoplyanka, who was sent off by a pass from his own half of the field Malinowski. After the score became 5-0, the stadium gave a long, well deserved ovation to the head coach of the national team of Ukraine Andriy Shevchenko.
