First Vice President of the Ukrainian Football Association Oleh Protasov: “It’s a difficult year for football. But football lived and that’s important. We managed to hold matches with spectators against Spain and Germany. Our team has shown itself, we can be proud of our guys. Unfortunately, one match was not played, but I can promise from the UAF that we will do everything to decide its fate on the football field. ”

Parimatch representative Vadym Misyura: “This is the fourth Expert club Parimatch this year, and we are happy to welcome our players again, who represent the country on the international arena. Meetings of our club have already become one of the most authoritative venues for meetings of sports experts. This year’s broadcasts were watched by about 200,000 fans, which shows how important football is and how interesting each meeting of the Expert club Parimatch is. It was a difficult year for the national team of Ukraine, but the national team met all the challenges with dignity, there were many debutants who felt what a game at the highest level. We hope that the pandemic will recede and the fans will return to the stadiums, which will only make football greater. ”

Assistant to the head coach of the national team of Ukraine Oleksandr Shovkovsky: “Matches with Spain and Germany are a great experience for both the players and the coaching staff. We tested a lot of new guys in the case, they felt what a game at the highest level. It was very important for us to keep up the pace that was taken last year. We showed the direction in which we are developing and it was necessary to check everything that we have acquired in matches with teams of the highest rank. ”

Footballer of the national team of Ukraine Serhiy Kryvtsov: “This year we had good matches, unfortunately, not everywhere was a positive result, as with Germany. The implementation failed. This year is generally mentally difficult, it has been felt by everyone in the world. But, our team withstood this test and in each match there was the maximum concentration only on a victory “.

Footballer of the national team of Ukraine Junior Moraes: “We had a very difficult and interesting schedule, especially when we played in a row with France, Germany and Spain. It was not easy to return to football at all after a long break in football. But we did not break down psychologically and this is the main thing. It’s a pity that the match with Switzerland didn’t take place, but we are ready to play. ”

Olexandr Zinchenko was in England that day, but joined the meeting with the help of Zoom.

Footballer of the national team of Ukraine Oleksandr Zinchenko: “Before Switzerland, all the guys were 100% psychologically ready. No one could have imagined that the game would not take place that day and were very upset. But we all believe that this game will still happen. We have a lot of new young players in our team. Even with the coronavirus, when we all didn’t see each other, our team remained united. We are on the right path, everything is fine within the team. “
