The head coach explained why the Belgian legionnaires and Yarmolenko will come to the team’s location at the end of the training camp.
Head coach of the national team of Ukraine Andrey Shevchenko believes that matches in the League of Nations are a great opportunity to experiment with the team before the 2021 European Championships, according to the UAF website.
«We see the League of Nations as a very important tournament. Many players have the opportunity to compete for a place in the main lineup. After the League of Nations, the qualification for the World Cup begins, so in this tournament we will be able to experiment, give young players the opportunity to prove themselves.
Maybe one of them will help us at the Euros or in qualifying for the World Cup. That’s why we create competition, that’s why we called so many young players.
The Belgian legionnaires and Yarmolenko will arrive at the team’s location at the end of the training camp. Why? They could not come earlier, the championships in Europe will start at different times. I think it is right to leave Yarmolenko in the club, he will get playing practice there. These players will arrive in the second part of the training camp, when the direct preparation for the matches will start, ”Shevchenko said.
We will remind, the national team of Ukraine will play with Switzerland on September 3 in Lviv. The match with Spain will take place on September 6 in Madrid.
