Euro 2022 in futsal. The national team of Ukraine defeated Denmark in the first of two paired matches

The national futsal team of Ukraine held the fourth match of the group qualifying round of Euro-2022, in which the Danish team won.

On the eve of the blue and yellow took second place in Group 1. In previous matches, our team defeated Albania away (10:3) and lost to Croatia on the road (2:3) and at home (2:7).

Oleksandr Kosenko's wards held the first of three April matches today - all of them will take place in the Zaporizhia Palace of Sports "Youth". We will remind, one of matches against Danes was canceled and subsequently, by decision of UEFA, postponed to April 8. That is why our team meets Scandinavians twice in a row. And the first game was nominally for the blue-yellows away.

At the beginning of the match, the Ukrainians had a significant advantage - in the first minute Zvarych scored from a good position past the goal, and Razuvanov hit the goalkeeper. The Danes made several dangerous attacks, but missed in the fifth minute, when Zhurba brought Pedyash to the strike position with a great pass, but he did not make a mistake.

Opponents immediately retaliated when no one interrupted Al-Kaza's shot, and Falk closed the far post. The blue-and-yellows responded with blows from Farenyuk and Zhurba, which Hog managed.

The goal gave the Danes confidence, and they could upset Sukhov again, who today replaced the disqualified Tsypun. However, Youssef forgave our team, unsuccessfully closing the far post, and Habibi missed from a deadly position. Towards the end of the first half, Sukhov had to rescue the team several times.

The Ukrainians made a lot of sharp attacks at that time, but somewhere our team lacked a final blow. And yet in the 18th minute Kosenko's charges came forward again. Swan scored a powerful free kick, and Weiss corrected the ball into his own net. 1: 2.

During the break in Denmark, the goalkeeper changed - Andersen took the place of the injured Hog. And the new goalkeeper had to miss in the first minute of the second half, when Abakshin hit the target after the passage and transfer of Eremin.

Then Sukhov parried Hansen's shot, Malyshko soon hit the crossbar from his half of the field after a mistake by rivals, and in the same episode on the finish Farenyuk shot at Andersen. However, in the 26th minute, the Danes missed again: in the counterattack Mykytyuk brought Abakshin to the strike position, and he made a double. 1: 4.

Andersen made several saves later, including a double after Farenyuk's shots. In the future, the pace of the game decreased, and the Danes regularly fouled, bringing the national team of Ukraine to the double penalty. Lebid could have scored in the 36th minute, but after a corner he aimed at the post.

At the end of the match, Farenyuk shot a double, and he was assisted twice by Zhurba. In both cases, the Ukrainians caught opponents in error. In the last minute of the match, the Scandinavians played one goal, when after one of the opponents came out on the ball, he flew into our goal with a ricochet from Zhurba. 2: 6.

In the end, the blue and yellows won a convincing victory and broke away from the competition in the standings by three points. Tomorrow our team will play the second match against Denmark in Zaporizhia, which will start at 19.00.
