Retro match Ukraine – England May 9 on uaf YouTube channel with the support of Parimatch
On Saturday, May 9, at 20.00 on the Youtube channel of the Ukrainian Football Association, watch the broadcast of the match of the national teams of Ukraine and England, which took place on October 10, 2009.
Autumn 2009. Ukraine's national team tried to get to the World Cup in South Africa, and the mission in front of Oleksiy Mykhailychenko's team looked almost impossible. "Blue and Yellow" were located on the second stage of the sixth qualifying group, but in the back our guys breathed powerful Croats who were waiting for the Ukrainians to settle in a face-to-face confrontation with the British.
The England national team have already guaranteed themselves a ticket to Mundial, but Fabio Capello's men did not drop momentum in qualifying and longed to finish the campaign with a 100% result. The stars of not only European but also world football – John Terry, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lempard and Wayne Rooney – came to dnipro.
The Ukrainian national team had nowhere to retreat, the fate of the second place in the group had to be decided in a home battle with the leaders of football. In April of that year, our Cossacks almost managed to catch a draw at Wembley thanks to Andriy Shevchenko's hit in the second half, but before the final whistle Terry still brought "three lions" three points.
Up to that point, Ukraine had never won in its native walls in the top team from the top ten of the FIFA rankings. But the crowded "Dnipro-Arena" from the starting whistle directed Mykhailychenko's guys to the gates of famous opponents, 31 thousand fans demanded only victory from their favorites!
The game turned out to be a real gift for football gourmets, it had everything – both the taking of the gate, the removal, and the penalty shootout, and its result eventually entered the Hall of Fame of Ukrainian football.
How did ukraine and England's world cup qualifiers end in 2010?
