2023: results of the year for Ukraine U-16/17

In May 2023, the new youth national team of Ukraine, made up of players born in 2007, played its first matches. It was headed by Volodymyr Yezersky, for whom selection was the biggest problem, since a huge number of young football players of this generation ended up outside Ukraine due to the war.

Germany, Spain, Austria, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland, Croatia - you can study European geography by the clubs from which players were called up to this team. And it is worth noting that talented Ukrainians have shown themselves very well abroad. Most of them play in their own teams, many have consistently high statistics.

Gathering a team even from them is already a problem of choice, because it is difficult to keep track of more than five dozen of our legionnaires born in 2007 in Europe. And the coaching staff also has a considerable group of football players who play for domestic clubs - for U-19 teams under the auspices of the UPL or even in the first league (Kyrylo Digtyar and Yaroslav Karpizin - in "Metalist", Andriy Pavluchenko - in "Epicenter") or in the second for the youth teams of more prestigious FCs ("Rukh", "Karpaty", "Metalurg").

The trainers had to conduct the selection literally on the go. In May, the team, as they say, from the letter played at the UEFA Development Tournament in Slovakia. At the beginning of September, it was possible to conduct a large-scale review of talents in Kyiv, where four sparring matches took place: "Kolos" U-19 - 1:3 (Bondar), "Dnipro-1" U-17 - 4:0 (Denysov, Akbari, Bondar, Pavluchenko ), "Shakhtar" U-19 — 1:2 (Pavluchenko), "Metalist 1925" U-19 — 1:0 (Pavluchenko).

And already in October, Volodymyr Yezerskyi's wards played in Liechtenstein in the qualifying round of Euro-2024 selection (U-17). Scored four points, took third place in the quartet, and then in the correspondence competition among the winners of the third places in their groups, they found themselves in the qualifying zone to get to the elite round of selection.

At the beginning of December, it became known that Ukraine's opponents at this stage of qualification will be Greece, Switzerland and Slovakia. The matches of our quartet will take place in March 2024 in Greece. The winners of the eight groups and the seven best second teams will enter the final tournament.
