Tomorrow, the Ukrainian team starts preparations for the League of Nations against Slovakia and for spying with Turkey. At the November summit, coach Andrei Shevchenko called 23 players and five more players were on the reserve list. Among them are two defenders, but as TEAM1 became aware, one of them, Bogdan Butko, suffered a ankle injury and would certainly miss the next match. Oleg Danchenko, who was invited to national team in September, is also in Shakhtar's Ambulance. So at this point, the blue-yellow mentor can count on the right side – Alexander Karavaeva.
Of course, we should not forget that Nikolai Matvienko looks good on the right-hand side of the Miner, and on the left he can play debaters – Vitaly Mikolenko and Vasily Kravets. In addition, Igor Perdu and Alexander Tymchik are candidates for the Ukrainian team. These performers are not on the reserve list, but Andrej Shevchenko will make the final decision tonight – after meeting the Dynamo-Mariupol and Vorskla-Shakhtar meetings. The main coach of the Ukrainian team, according to the information we have, will watch the game from Kiev from the NSC Olympics.
