U-21: 2022 for the youth national team of Ukraine - the qualifying round of Euro-2023 and the Lobanovsky Tournament

The plans of the youth national team of Ukraine in 2022 include participation in the Euro-2023 (U-21) qualification and the traditional Valery Lobanovsky Tournament. 

Ruslan Rotan's qualifying tournament for the European Championship will continue in March, with an away match against Armenia and a home match against France. In June, the blue and yellows will take an exam in the Faroe Islands and meet at home with Northern Macedonia. It will be recalled that our youth team currently ranks second in its group, which according to the regulations allows it to take part in the playoffs, for which the windows are scheduled for September. Only the best second team out of nine will receive a direct ticket to the final tournament. 

We would also like to add that the traditional Valery Lobanovsky Tournament with the participation of the youth national team of Ukraine is scheduled for May (27-29). By the way, she won these competitions twice - in 2009 and 2019.
