"The Ukraine national team has high expectations from the European Championship. They have a good group, where there are no big favorites. Rebrov's team has gained solid experience on the international stage, primarily thanks to young talents who play in top leagues. They have 25 top-class players in the squad.

I think the Ukrainians have high chances to get out of the group: they have a stronger squad compared to their competitors. I would not be surprised if they reach the quarterfinals or semifinals of the Euro.

As for individual actions of the players, this is another strong point of Ukraine. The players have been progressing together since the youth national teams. Many of them represent the two main clubs - Dynamo and Shakhtar. They know each other well. Sudakov and Mudryk are in the spotlight now. The same applies to Dovbik and Tsygankov, who play well at Girona. We should not forget about Shaparenko from Dynamo Kyiv and Zabarny from Bournemouth. Such a combination of talents makes the Ukraine national team a very strong team.

Rebrov? He is a great coach, he has no predetermined game system: with Poland he chose 4-4-1-1, with Germany he started with 4-2-3-1, and then switched to 5-4-1. Rebrov knows how the team should play thanks to the abilities of his players. He is in search of the right balance, finding the right place on the pitch for everyone, raising the spirit and motivation. In a word, Rebrov is doing a great job.

Speaking about the competition between Lunin and Trubin, I think they are both very strong, as well as Buschan. Ukraine has always had strong goalkeepers. Lunin had a great season with Real Madrid. Trubin was also good. Rebrov has to decide whether one of the goalkeepers will play all the time or maybe they will alternate, as they have different characteristics. And it's a difficult choice," Nicolini told Sportitalia.it.
