Ukraine Euro 2020 team profile: squad, manager, odds and prospects

Ukraine have the tools to cause Group C rivals some pain

Andriy Yarmolenko can be a livewire in the final third for Ukraine
1 of 1

Tournament odds: 100-1

Andriy Shevchenko led Ukraine into two major tournaments as a player and he again has the hopes of the nation on his shoulders, this time as manager, looking to change his nation’s terrible record in European Championships.

The appointment of such a high-profile manager will take further heat off a squad who have already flown under the radar given that their many home-based players lack the big name status of some of their rivals.

However, a lack of star power is not directly indicative of quality and they were impressive in qualifying, going unbeaten in a group that featured Serbia and Portugal and conceding only four goals in the process. 

Results have been inconsistent since, with a Covid outbreak and subsequent forfeiting of a Nations League match at least partly responsible for their relegation in that competition. Despite that they have beaten Spain and drawn with France in the last 12 months, and their kind draw in Group C has given them a real chance of progressing.

Their squad has a good blend of experience and youth, with a few of their 2019 U20 World Cup-winning team likely to appear this summer. They are solid defensively and have an abundance of talent going forward. 

Fans of Manchester City will be intrigued to see how Oleksandr Zinchenko fares. He is vital to his country, functioning as a midfield general in the team rather than left-back, and will look to combine with Atalanta’s Ruslan Malinovsky to provide a touch of class in creative areas.

Another player to watch in particular is winger Viktor Tsyhankov, Dynamo Kiev’s star man who contributed an impressive 20 goals or assists in as many games in the league this season. A big tournament from the 23-year-old is likely to see him follow in Andriy Yarmolenko’s footsteps and leave Dynamo for bigger things. 

In one of the easier groups, and with a well balanced squad that perhaps lacks the big names of others, Ukraine could cause a few upsets and are worth keeping an eye on. 

Scouting report

Manager - Andrey Shevchenko: A national legend and all-time top-scorer now leads his country into a major tournament as manager. Has tinkered with formation quite a bit but plays an attractive style of football, prioritising the counter-attack.

Probable team - 4-1-4-1: Pyatov; Karavayev, Matviyenko, Zabarnyi, Mykolenko; Sydorchuk; Yarmolenko, Malinovsky, Zinchenko, Tsygankov; Yaremchuk

Penalty taker: Ruslan Malinovsky
Free-kick wizard: Viktor Tsyhankov
Set-piece aerial threat: Roman Yaremchuk
Card magnet: Serhiy Sydorchuk
Star man: Oleksandr Zinchenko

Team Strengths

  • They are a well balanced team who are solid defensively but have talent and flair in attacking areas, particularly out wide.
  • They have a number of game winners who can turn matches on their head, particularly Tsyhankov, Malinovsky and Yarmolenko.

Team Weaknesses

  • In the past the squad have been affected by tension between players of Ukraine’s two main clubs, Dynamo Kiev and Shakhtar Donetsk.
  • Ukraine have a terrible record in the European Championships, winning just once in six group stage games. They failed to even score at the last Euros.

Prospects: With a good draw in Group C, they can cause a few upsets and even run the Netherlands close for the group. However, they may come unstuck in the last 16 if they draw an experienced team of quality.

Inside Info - Jonathan Wilson, European football expert: The political situation is awful in all the real ways but the war could also inspire this team. This is an opportunity to give something back and teams fighting for a greater cause often have the potential to do better than expected in tournaments.
