A regular meeting of Expert club Parimatch took place in PMHUB in Kyiv. The event was organized by the Ukrainian Football Association and the official partner of the national team of Ukraine Parimatch. This time, well-known football experts, officials and players discussed the start of the national team of Ukraine in the selection of the 2022 World Cup and the preparation of the team for the finals of Euro 2020.
The guests of Expert club Parimatch were the first vice-president of UAF Anatoliy Demyanenko , former midfielder of the national team of Ukraine, and now a football expert Eugene Levchenko and national team players Alexander Zinchenko, Eduard Sobol, Sergey Kryvtsov and Anatoly Trubin .
Anatoly played for the national team for the first time in the match with Kazakhstan and thus set a new record. He became the youngest debutant goalkeeper in the history of the blue and yellows.
“This is a very pleasant event for me, because my dream has come true. The goal of every football player is to play for his national team. It is a bit more difficult for a goalkeeper to make this dream come true than for a field player, because you are rarely released as a replacement. It is necessary to act in the main lineup. For me, this is a huge step that makes me stronger. I understand that my work is not in vain. “,, – shared his impressions Anatoly Trubin.
The results of the previous three matches have become the main topic of Expert club Parimatch. The guests of the event noted that the situation in the group is quite difficult, but we still have a good chance to reach the final part of the World Cup.
Anatoliy Demyanenko: “In the selection for the 2022 World Cup, we will have to make up for lost time. In my opinion, the fate of the second place will be decided by three teams – Ukraine, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Finland. You can fight for the first place, such a task should not be discarded, but it will be difficult to perform. We need to rethink these three meetings and move forward. “ .
Sergey Kryvtsov: «We simply have nowhere to retreat. We got into a real tournament pit because of these results. That’s why we have one way – only forward “.
Alexander Zinchenko: “The French national team are real killers on the football field, who are very hungry for victories and goals. If you take the same Kilian Mbappe, then when he goes on the field, he wants to destroy the opponent, score as many goals as possible, break all records. And so is their whole team. We did not underestimate them. “ .
Eduard Sobol: “During the match with Finland, we completely controlled the game. They scored the ball and, but in the last part of the game we lacked either concentration or discipline. “ .
At the same time, experts said that now the most important task for the national team of Ukraine is to successfully perform at the European Championship. The tournament will start in two months and in May the team will start preparing for the Euro and hold a series of sparring matches.
Eugene Levchenko: “I think all our guys understand perfectly well that the European Championship is a kind of players’ fair. This is an unforgettable event. I want to wish Ukrainians to approach him without injuries, in a good physical and psychological mood. I think the main thing will be the game with the Netherlands. But, on the other hand, when to defeat them, how not now. I do not underestimate their qualities, but right now in the Netherlands there is a lot of criticism of the team’s game. “.
Public Relations Director of Parimatch Ukraine Vadim Misiura as a result of the meeting shared expectations: “I wish the whole team of our company to the national team of Ukraine victories and good luck at the European Championship.
