Doctor of the Ukrainian national team: Mikolenko has a foot injury, damage to the Lisfranc joint

The exact recovery timeframe has not been announced.

Doctor of the Ukrainian national team Roman Zholobaylyuk assessed the damage to the blue-yellow defender Vitaly Mykolenkowhich the player received in a sparring with Moldova (4:0).

“The most important thing, I want to say, is that this is a different limb. But the injury is quite interesting. This is not an ankle injury. This is a foot injury. There is such an interesting joint called Lisfranc. This area of ​​his was damaged.”

“We will be able to talk about the terms of rehabilitation and the extent of damage after we do an MRI. Yesterday, thank God, after a computed tomography assessing the state of the skeletal system, no bone pathology was discovered.”

In the middle of the first half of the match in Chisinau, with the score 1:0 in favor of Sergei Rebrov’s team, Mikolenko on the left flank of the attack unsuccessfully collided with an opponent (Arthur Krachun) and injured his right leg. Three minutes later he returned to the field, successfully played defense, but immediately after that he felt pain again and was unable to continue the game.

Ukraine eventually achieved a crushing victory with a score of 4:0, and Mikolenko was recognized as the “Lion of the Match.”

This sparring was the third and last for Rebrov’s team in preparation for Euro 2024. Earlier in Nuremberg, the blue-yellows tied with Germany (0:0), and in Warsaw they lost to Poland (1:3).

Yesterday, June 12, the Ukrainian team arrived in Wiesbaden, its base city during the continental championship. Today, June 13, Rebrov’s team will hold an open training session at the BRITA-Arena stadium.

At the group stage of the 2024 European Championship, the blue-yellows will play against the national teams of Romania (June 17), Slovakia (June 21) and Belgium (June 26). The matches will take place in Munich, Dusseldorf and Stuttgart, respectively.
