Parimatch Expert Club meeting discussed matches of the Ukrainian national team with three world champions
PM HUB held a Parimatch Expert Club meeting in Kyiv. This time the topic of the discussion was the Ukrainian national team, which previously played three consecutive matches with the world champions of the last decade.
Two days before the Parimatch Expert Club meeting, our national team beat Spain, which had previously won a 15-match series in the last two years. This achievement is reached despite personnel issues related to injuries and the coronavirus.
The speakers of the Parimatch Expert Club were a General Secretary of the UAF Yuriy Zapisotskyi, a coach of the Ukrainian national team (U-18) Volodymyr Yezerskyi, a doctor of the national team Maksim Betskov, a Parimatch representative Vadim Misiura, as well as footballers Mykola Shaparenko and Oleksandr Karavayev. Andriy Pyatov, the captain of the Ukrainian national team, joined them, however, via Zoom. The goalkeeper was just going to take a coronavirus test.
“The Expert Club is a unique platform where top managers, experts and players meet. Here we can discuss the most pressing issues related to the development of football. Today we gathered after a phenomenal victory, which brought joy to all fans of Ukraine. I am sure there are many more victories ahead. And, of course, Parimatch will continue to organize such events in future. This is important for the media and the national team and the fans. Together we will get even better,” Parimatch representative Vadym Misiura said.
Andriy Pyatov: “It is a pity that I could not come to you in person. Now I’m going to take the test, hopefully everything will be great and I’ll be back in the group. In general, the situation related to the coronavirus in “Shakhtar” came as a shock, we only just played with “Desn”a, and here we are going to find out the tests’ results. They didn’t know what to do, as they hadn’t taken the coronavirus so seriously before. But I am very pleased that Bushchan showed the level of a real goalkeeper in terms of psychology. You can miss a lot of goals, but you need to stand firm. And this is what Zhora was after France. He became a pillar for the entire national team.
Oleksandr Karavayev: “We all supported Bushchan, because everyone made mistakes, we are one. Georgiy pulled himself together and showed a high level in subsequent matches. After France we reviewed the mistakes. Of course, it is unpleasantly to miss so many, but for Germany we were preparing thinking straight and fully concentrated , no one was discouraged. It is not always necessary to play the way you want, especially if you have a serious opponent in front of you. It is necessary to be able to recollect yourself and to prick the opponent at the right time. It turned out like this with Spain, and with Germany we also had a good chance to get a good result.
Mykola Shaparenko: “The French team are now one of the best teams, and it is difficult to compete with them. They only need a bit of moment to create a goal. We tried as best we could, but a grade is a grade. Then, in Kyiv, we showed a completely different football. It is especially nice that the matches with Germany and Spain were held with spectators, since we missed the support from the stands and we felt the energy even though the stadium was not completely full.
Volodymyr Yezerskyi: “We are rightfully among the strongest teams in the League of Nations. We need to understand that the matches had minimum preparations. It is difficult to work in such conditions. Besides, the coaching staff could not count on several key players. However, following the match against France, the coaching staff received a lot of valuable information. We saw a completely different national team against Germany and Spain.
Yuriy Zapisotskyi: “Everyone understands the importance of these matches. Everyone knows the circumstances that arose before the game in France. But now the main thing is that the team withstood and gave us such a spectacular victory over Spain. Now we are preparing for the November matches and expect them to be successful for us.”
Maksym Betskov: “The situation with the coronavirus was predictable. But as for Lunin and Pankiv, that was unexpected. Now the tests are conducted by different companies, over time they are improved, but there are still both mistakenly negative and mistakenly positive results. But if the test turned out to be positive and then negative, we should still take the positive one into account.”
The total cost of the help reached UAH 8.5 million.
The ambulance is intended for transporting seriously ill and wounded persons and is equipped with everything necessary for specialists to provide emergency care directly in the car.
