Birthday of the national team of Ukraine: 30 years behind

Today the national team of Ukraine has a significant milestone. It marks the 30th anniversary of the first official match, which took place at Uzhhorod's Avangard Stadium with the Hungarian team. Our south-western neighbors then proved to be more playful than the debutant of the international arena, and won - 3: 1. 

Since then, our main team has played 290 more matches and is approaching the anniversary mark - 300 meetings.

Out of 291 matches, we have 130 victories and 78 defeats. A draw was recorded 83 more times. The total difference between goals scored and conceded is 400-297.

It will be recalled that this statistic is taking into account the sparring match with Malta (0: 1) in 2017, which is not included in the FIFA register due to too many substitutions. But we take it into account, because we have had a lot of substitutions in friendly matches before. And this is not a reason to delete these meetings from the biography.
