Ukrainian midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko commented on the defeat in the match against Northern Ireland in the second round of the Euro-2016’s group stage and said that he was ashamed to go home after the defeat.

'We were in great possession of the ball after the first half of the game. But we didn’t know how to break our rivals’ defense. It was like beating heads against the wall... A lot of people had high hopes for that championship. How was my game today? It was bad! How could we underestimate the rivals? We knew how they played. I am ashamed. Now I don’t know how to go home,' the footballer said.
