2019: results of the year for the U-21 youth team of Ukraine

The performances of the youth team of Ukraine in 2019 can be safely divided into two parts. In the first team played friendly matches, winning two international tournaments. The second is the selection of Euro-2021 (U-21).

In the spring of 2019, the head coach of the youth team, Ruslan Rotan (replaced by Alexander Golovko in December 2018), carried out selection work. And in March we had to count mainly on the players of 1998, and this generation, unlike 1999 or 2000 years of birth, never made its way to the final tournament of the European Championship - neither in the U-17 nor in the U category -19.

Why were there such restrictions? The fact is that the Ukrainian U-20 team was preparing for the World Cup in Poland, which ended only in June - the triumph of Alexander Petrakov's team, which brought together the best players of 1999-2000 years of birth (plus Danilo Sikan in 2001).

And in March the matches of the elite round of Euro 2019 (U-19) were held by the youth team under the leadership of Sergiy Nagornyak. Therefore, the optimal set of players Ruslan Rotan managed to get only in early September - just before the start selection for Euro-2021 (U-21). And he was required to teach the players the game that he built in the national team of Ukraine Andriy Shevchenko - with ball control, emphasis on attack.

Such football requires long-term training work, and it is desirable - with one and the same composition, and such possibility the coaches of the youth team were deprived. Work had to be done in the course of the play, the mistakes were very painful and led to three defeats in four duels.

We hope that by the end of the selection cycle Rotan and his assistants will reach the goal and their team will play as it should ...
