The Ukrainian Olympic team defeated Japan U-19 and reached the finals of the tournament in France

Rotan’s team won all four matches in Group B

Ukrainian Olympic team played the fourth match in the group stage of the tournament Tournoi Maurice Revello in France. Ruslan Rotan’s team beat Japan U-19 – 2:1.

In the 42nd minute, Kolos midfielder Vladislav Veleten took a well-aimed shot from the line of the penalty area and brought the blue-and-yellows ahead. After the break, the 21-year-old player scored a double.

Towards the end of the meeting, Japan reduced the gap in the score, but the Blue Samurai were not enough to do more. Note that the missed goal from Kento Shiogai was the first for Ukraine at an international tournament in France.

The Ukrainian U-23 team won all four matches in Group B and advanced to the finals of the competition from first place. Earlier in the tournament, Rotan’s team defeated Indonesia U-20 (3:0) and Italy U-21 (4:0), and also defeated Panama U-23 (2:0).

In the final of the Tournoi Maurice Revello, the Ukrainian Olympic team will play against the Ivory Coast U-20 team, which won Group B ahead of France U-20. The decisive match of the tournament will take place on Sunday, June 16. Starts at 19:15 Kyiv time.

Let us remind you that in the second half of the summer of 2024, Ukraine will take part in the Olympic football tournament for the first time in its history. Ruslan Rotan’s team won a ticket to Paris last year, reaching the semi-finals of the European Youth Championship.

The Ukrainian national team will play at the 2024 Olympics with Argentina, Morocco and Iraq. In the first round, Rotan’s team will meet the Asian team on July 24.
