Zinchenko: We need to confirm our status, we need to show our best game

The match for a ticket to Euro 2024 between Ukraine and Iceland will take place on March 26

National team defender Ukraine Alexander Zinchenko commented on the upcoming match of the final play-off qualifying for the 2024 European Championship against Iceland.

“The preparations are going well, we will see what we can demonstrate on the football field, because practice is one thing, but playing is another. We need to confirm our status, because I think we have a very good team, good players. We have to play our best.”

“During preparation we are more focused on our game. Yes, we analyzed the Icelandic team, saw its strengths and weaknesses. We’ll see how it all ends. Icelanders love to play with four at the back and love to operate on counterattacks. There are players you need to pay attention to. But first you need to build on your game, and then we’ll see.”

“I believe that with our support in the stands we can do anything. We were told that the stadium would be full, which was very nice. The support of our fans always helps.”

“Of course, we need to say every day that Ukraine needs world support, we need to shout about it. We need to remind people, because perhaps some people forget about this. As I said earlier, Ukraine today is like a shield for the whole of Europe. Because today there is war in our country, and tomorrow it may already be in your country. Therefore, we need to support each other. Good always triumphs over evil”.

Ukraine’s nominally “home” match with Iceland will take place in Wroclaw, Poland, on March 26. The meeting starts at 21:45 Kyiv time. The match will be judged by a French team of referees led by Clement Turpin. The winner of the confrontation will advance to the 2024 European Championship, where they will play in Quartet E with Belgium, Slovakia and Romania.

Euro 2024 will take place in Germany from June 14 to July 14, 2024. The matches of the European Championship will be held in arenas in Berlin, Cologne, Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich and Stuttgart.
