U-21. Ukraine to play friendly against Italy: live — on the UAF YouTube channel and Suspilne regional TV channels

The youth national team of Ukraine continues the training camp in preparation for the final part of Euro-2023 (U-21), during which the team has planned two friendly matches. 

The blue and yellow team played the first game against Denmark on March 24 in Belek, Turkey, and won in the last seconds — 3: 2. Today, March 27, our team meets Italy at the Oreste Grannillo Stadium in Reggio Calabria. The match starts at 21.00 Kyiv time. The match will be broadcast live on the UAF YouTube channel and Suspilne regional TV channels. 

The next day, after the emotional match with Denmark, the Ukrainian national team moved south of the Apennine Peninsula, and held training sessions on Sunday. Fortunately, all football players are healthy. Presumably, head coach Ruslan Rotan, who is due to fly to the location of our delegation from London today, will lead those performers who were less involved or did not play at all with the Scandinavians in the second friendly match. It is possible that the Italians, who on the same day as us, on Friday, held a friendly in Serbia, where they defeated their local peers - 2:0, will work according to this scheme. 

The squad of Ukraine U-XNUMX:

Goalkeepers: Ruslan Nescheret (Dynamo Kyiv), Kiril Fesyun (Kolos Kovalivka), Yakiv Kinareykin (Dnipro-1 Dnipro).

Defenders: Rostyslav Lyakh, Vitaliy Roman, Roman Didyk (all from Rukh Lviv), Maksym Talovyerov (LASK, Austria), Christian Bilovar (AEL, Cyprus), Anton Bol, Kostyantyn Vyvcharenko (both from Dynamo Kyiv), Arseniy Batagov (Zorya Luhansk), Oleksandr Drambayev (Zulte-Waregem, Belgium).
