Euro 2020 Ukraine

Ukraine qualified for the Euro 2020 after topping its group. They finished three points clear of Portugal. This will be their third consecutive European Championship campaign. In both their previous campaigns, they were knocked out in the group stage.

Goalkeeper: Andriy Pyatov

Pyatov is the most senior player in the Ukraine squad for Euro 2020. He is a few caps away from earning 100 for his country. He will be confident of the Number 1 jersey despite fierce competition from Real Madrid wonder kid Andriy Lunin. Pyatov is well known for his shot-stopping abilities.

Defender: Mykola Matvienko

After his debut in 2017, he has played the most matches compared to any other player in the Ukrainian squad. He started his career as a right-back but has since moved to the middle of the defense. He does not shy away from a challenge and is known for his long-range passing.

Midfielder: Ruslan Malinovsky

Malinovsky has had a big hand to play in Atalanta’s rise in the Serie A. He possesses exceptional ball retention skills and excellent distribution. The Atlanta midfielder’s ability to create space and move between the lines has ensured he will be one of the most important players for Ukraine this summer.

Forward: Andriy Yarmolenko

Given the reputation of their coach, there’s one area in which his interest will undoubtedly be strong. Regularly finding the net at the international level is a challenging prospect, Shevchenko managed 48 strikes in 111 appearances making him Ukraine’s all-time scorer. Yarmolenko is just 10 behind having played 19 games fewer. He can play on either the right side or the left side of the striker. In qualifying, he played most of his games on the right.
