Renowned Ukrainian journalist Andrei Shakhov returned to the topic of the recent match of the qualifying round of Euro 2024 England - Ukraine (2-0).
"I come back to the match England - Ukraine. The coaching staff was sure that against England at Wembley, high pressing and short draws on goal kicks was what was needed? Did they confuse the opponents in the group - England and Malta?
Besides, it's totally unclear how our team was going to score, if even the three shots that were directed at the British goal were from outside the box?
And one more thing...
Konoplyanka, 33, in his last matches for Krakowia.
18.03. "Rakuw", came on 66 minutes
12.03. "Warta", didn't play due to injury
5.03. "Szląsk", substituted in the 80th minute
25.02. "Piast" took to the pitch during the half-time break
17.02. "Steel" came on the pitch at half-time, gave away the goal
12.02. "Legia", didn't play.
In total: in the last six games he had only one appearance in the starting lineup and 0 +1 on "goal + pass" system.
"Krakivia" in the Polish championship is in seventh place, 27 points behind "Rakuva", where Vladislav Kochergin consistently appears in the starting lineup, who during this period scored two goals and made two assists..." - wrote Shakhov on his page on social network Facebook.
