Our footballers managed to score four goals to the opponents' despair. However, the victory was not that easy...
On May 29, Mikhail Fomenko’s wards held a match with the national team of Romania who was another participant of the continental championship. This was made in Turin within the framework of preparations for Euro-2016.
According to Dialog UA, each team of Ukraine and Romania scored one goal in the first half of the friendly match.
Ukrainians had to recoup: Torje opened the scoring on the 23th minute, and Rotan equalized it just before the break.
Both teams produced real enchanting spectacle in the second half of the match. First, Aleksandr Zinchenko brought the blue-yellows forward (2: 1). The Ukrainian national team’s leaders Yevhen Konoplyanka and Yevhen Yarmolenko carried out precise strokes and brought the score to devastating numbers (4: 1).
But the Romanians were not so easy too. Fomenko’s wards relaxed after the successful attacks and their opponents didn’t fail to take advantage of this fact.
Denis Alibec broke through our goalkeeper on the 75th minute stressing that this was still a bit far before the final whistle. Nicolae Stanciu reduced the gap in the score to the minimal one (4: 3) ten minutes later.
The Romanians didn’t feel happy with the honorary defeat and they went on a final attack of the Ukrainian goal. But the blue-yellows hold off the opponents and won the match.
The Ukrainian team’s victory was not perfect, but very spectacular at the same time. It demonstrated open football and the gaps in its defense, which should be fixed before Euro-2016.
Some outlets described this match as strange, because the goalkeepers showed quite passive behavior during the attacks.
The Ukrainian national team will have the next sparring match within its preparations for Euro 2016 on June 3. It will play against Albania.
