Women's League of Nations-2023/2024. The national team of Ukraine conceded to Poland and lost its chances to be promoted in the class

Today, with a match against Poland, the women's national team of Ukraine continued its struggle in the group round of the first ever Nations League draw.

In the previous match of group B3, the blue and yellow team won their first victory of the tournament, defeating Greece (1:0). Today, Volodymyr Pyatenko's wards played a nominally home match against Poland in Stalowa Wola, Poland, at the Stal stadium.

The start of the game was not up to our girls. Already in the 10th minute, Adriana Akhchinska scored in the Kelyushik goal. As it turned out later, it was this goal that decided the fate of the match.

In the future, there was an equal struggle on the field, where the defense clearly prevailed over the attack. During the entire playing time, the teams managed to score only three shots on each other's goal, two of which hit the target.

So it is not surprising that the score on the scoreboard did not change until the final whistle — 1:0 in favor of Poland. After this defeat, the Ukrainian women lost any chance to compete for a place in League A.  

The women's national team of Ukraine will play its next match against Serbia on December 5.
