Razvan Rat: Ukraine didn’t play for anything, they looked apathetic

The ex-footballer of Shakhtar also noted the support of Romanian fans

Former defender of Shakhtar and the Romanian national team Razvan Rat commented on the results of the match Ukraine With Romania (0:3) in the first round of Group E European Championship 2024.

“It was very nice in the stands. I saw a stadium full of Romanians. I think there were 50,000 Romanians there. The Ukrainians were not heard at all.”

“I will call Stepanenko and tell him to end his career. Ukraine didn’t play for anything, they looked very apathetic, we got everything. That made the difference from start to finish.”

The Romanians won the first half minimally after intercepting Andrei Lunin’s pass from their goal, and immediately after the break they struck a double blow. First, Edward Jordanescu’s team carried out a counterattack, and then achieved defeat after winning the ball from a corner with the inexplicable passivity of the Ukrainian defense. Zinchenko played the entire game as a left back.

The match against Romania was the 12th for Ukraine in the finals of the European Championship. The blue-and-yellows suffered their ninth defeat, and they invariably lost in each of the matches. Moreover: for the second forum in a row, the Ukrainian team missed three times in the opening match.

In the second round, Ukraine will play against Slovakia on June 21. In the final match of the group stage, Rebrov’s team will meet Belgium on June 26.
