"Frankly, now all attention is focused on the next confrontation - with the Irish, and we will think about the Greeks later. So, we have videos of the last matches of the Irish, and I also know that before leaving for Kyiv, 30 players were called to the training camp, many of whom play abroad.

Rivals impress with their anthropometric data, it is no coincidence that their trump card is home-made products during the drawing of standard positions, where they feel good in the fight for the top balls. But I am convinced that during the training we will be lucky to determine the weaknesses of this team, "said Natalia Zinchenko.
