U-19: Ukraine's youth team defeats the Netherlands but fails to make it to Euro 2022

Today in Rotterdam, Vladimir Yezersky's wards played the third, decisive match in the elite qualifying round of Euro-2022 (U-19). 

In the first round of the elite round of Euro 2022, the youth national team of Ukraine (players not older than 2003) defeated the team of Norway - 3:2, and in the second drew with Serbia - 1:1. Today, the blue-and-yellows faced an extremely difficult test in a duel with the hosts of the competition - the Dutch. 

To get to the final tournament you had to take first place, and for this - you must win. 

However, the debut of the match was left to the Dutch, who also had a chance to reach the Euro. The hosts were the first to pass the corner and were the first to score.

Ukrainians did not immediately, but came to their senses, trying to impose their football on the opponent. Sometimes it worked out, but, unfortunately, before the break the wards of Volodymyr Yezerskyi could not score, although they surpassed the hosts in goal moments - 2: 1.

The beginning of the second half radically changed the picture on the field. In the 47th minute, Dutch goalkeeper Rufs received a red card for a foul on Voloshin. After that, Ukraine rushed forward. In the 55th minute after a corner kick by Jacyk Kozik equalized with an accurate shot. 1: 1. In the future, the advantage of the Ukrainian national team was not in doubt. Under the curtain of the meeting, the predominance of blue and yellow on shots became quite significant (17: 7), but the ball did not go into the goal. Still, in the 90th minute Popov led the Ukrainian national team forward. 2: 1. 

Unfortunately, the victory with such a score was not enough. The Serbs beat the Norwegians - 3: 2 and with an equal number of points, a draw in personal meetings and the same total goal difference, according to the rules, won by a lower number of disciplinary points (10 yellow cards against 13 in our country). They took first place ...
