Ukraine vs France Match Preview and Team News
Ukraine cannot boast of good results in the group. With the fourth consecutive draw, their placement in the playoffs is endangered, so that they will lead a great battle until the end. A great opportunity for Ukraine to get closer to France by only one point was missed on Thursday when they failed to overcome the modest team of Kazakhstan, and it is hard to imagine that they will achieve a favorable result in the upcoming match. Ukraine is going through a turbulent period. After the end of the EURO, the legendary striker Andriy Shevchenko left the national team bench after five years, and the role of the interim coach is played by 64-year-old Oleksandr Petrakov, who mostly led the younger categories in his career. Andriy Yarmolenko is a true leader in the club and the national team. Roman Yaremchuk is experienced, he is doing great in the penalty area, and he means a lot to the national team. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
After a disappointing placement at this year’s EURO, in which they were eliminated in the 1/8 finals by Switzerland, France has continued to show a bad performance in the rest of these qualifications. However, it is perhaps the most talented national team in the world. This time, as hosts, they played only 1-1 with the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Everything became much harder for the national team of France when Jules Kounde received a direct red card at the start of the second half. However, even that is not an excuse for the poor game of the team of this pedigree. For this match, Deschamps can count on almost all players. The only small problem may be the position of right-back, where will not be injured Pavard and Kounda who is suspended. Olivier Giroud is an experienced player that means a lot for the national team, and he has scored many vital goals so far. Kylian Mbappe passes through the opponent’s defense as a fast train, one of the fastest players in the world.
