Football players lined up in front of the central stand! The national anthems of Scotland and Ukraine are playing!
The teams are already leaving the tribune space on the football field! Ukrainians are already traditionally wrapped in the flags of their native country!
Thousands of Ukrainian fans who found refuge in Krakow due to the full-scale Russian military invasion of Russia will support the Ukrainian national team at "Krakowia" today. Among them is a star fan and a legendary player of the national team. Andriy Pyatov is present at the match today as the new ambassador of the Ukrainian national team!
Identical weather to Ukrainian weather is currently prevailing in Krakow, where the decisive meeting between the national teams of Ukraine and Scotland in the League of Nations will take place. 14 degrees above zero and cloudy weather - the players will have to run around nicely in the conditions of a fresh football evening.
Ukrainian fans want to continue the festive evening! Just an hour ago, the youth national team of Ukraine defeated the team of Slovakia in the return match of the 2023 European Championship qualification playoffs with a score of 3:0 and made it to the final part of the tournament!
The Scottish national team suffered a lot of losses before this match. Defenders Andy Robertson, Nathan Patterson, Scott McKenna, Kieran Tierney and midfielder Scott McTominay are all out for various reasons - injuries and suspensions. In addition, the coach of the team, Steve Clark, complained about the virus that affected the players of his team after the match with Ireland in the League of Nations (2:1). So it is not surprising that the Scots will go to the match against the Ukrainians with a 5-4-1 defensive scheme and try not to lose in Krakow.
Oleksandr Petrakov fielded a hybrid team after the away defeat against Scotland (0:3) and the away rout over Armenia (5:0). Taras Stepanenko will unexpectedly play in the center of defense, and the pair of Ruslan Malinovskyi and Danylo Ignatenko will play in the center of the field. Mykhailo Mudryk is also returning to the starting line-up, who will play on the left in the attack.
Winner takes all! Today, the national teams of Ukraine and Scotland will have 90 minutes to decide in a head-to-head battle who is more worthy to win Group B1 in the Nations League! Ukraine will be satisfied only with a victory, the Scots will agree to a draw.
Good evening, dear fans! Today, the national team of Ukraine will play in the UEFA Nations League match against the team of Scotland.
It should be recalled just a win over Scotland will allow the Ukrainian national team to finish first in the quartet. In case of success, along with three points, the Ukrainian team will receive:
— a ticket to the elite division — League A for the 2024/2025 season;
— as the winner of the League of Nations group — an additional chance to fight for a pass to Euro-2024 in the playoffs, if it does not get to the championship due to qualification;
