The national team of Ukraine for the first time in history reached the quarter-finals of Euro


Andriy Shevchenko, Alexander Shovkovsky and Alexandre Zintchenko shared his emotions from the victory of his team over Sweden (2:1).


The head coach of the Ukrainian national team Andriy Shevchenko commented on the victory over the Swedish national team (2: 1) in the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020.

We asked the midfielders to work a lot. We reviewed the position of Yarmolenko. The team carried out my stop, we were in no hurry, transferred from flank to flank, so the first goal was scored. The two opponents played well, played interesting football, no one wanted to lose, and therefore they made it to such a drama.

The legendary ex-goalkeeper of the “yellow-blues” and assistant to the head coach of the team Alexander Shovkovsky shared his emotions after the national team reached the quarterfinals of the tournament.

There is always one victory for all. Congratulations to all the fans. Without your support, without your faith, without “Chervona Ruta” (famous ukrainian song) before the game, which not only energizes, but also inspires … We did it together with you. Glory to Ukraine!

At the 120th minute of the meeting, Alexander Zinchenko hung from the flank and Artem Dovbyk hammered the ball into the Olsen’s net. The most important goal that brought the Ukrainian national team to the quarter-finals of Euro 2020. Now, Andriy Shevchenko’s team is to play against England.

I wanted to show these people that we had to stay calm. We work hard, we accomplished our mission, we made history by qualifying for the quarter-finals. I showed those who criticize us, even if the majority supports us, that we need them to support us.
