U-21: Ukraine roster for friendly matches with Israel and Georgia has been announced

The head coach of the youth national team of Ukraine, Ruslan Rotan, announced the list of players called to the training camp in November and commented on his choice for the UAF press service.

As part of preparations for the final tournament of Euro-2023 (U-21), the youth national team of Ukraine in the period from November 15 to 22 holds training camp in Georgia, during which they will play two friendly matches.

On November 19, Ruslan Rotan's wards meet with Israel, and on the 21st - with Georgia. Both matches start at Tbilisi Sea Technical Center Stadium at 18.00 local time (16.00 Kyiv time). It should be noted that both opponents of the blue-yellows are also participants in Euro-2023 (U-21): Georgia - as the host, and Israel - after completing the qualifying in which they surpassed, in particular, Poland, Hungary (in the group) and Ireland (in the playoff).

"It was not very easy to organize this training camp, as the championship of Ukraine is ongoing," said Ruslan Rotan. — We tried to make a bet on our legionnaires, as well as on those performers who do not play much in their clubs, well understanding that everyone faces tournament tasks. We will have an opportunity to review those candidates that we have been following for a long time. It is necessary to be prepared that at any moment our leading players may be needed by the national team. Also, while preparing for the final part of Euro-2023, we do not forget that a new qualifying cycle for the team will start in September."
