The coach of the Ukrainian national team believes that his team did not show its full potential at Euro 2024

Head coach national team Ukraine Serhiy Rebrov commented on the performance of the national team at the 2024 European Championship. The UAF vice-president also spoke about the results of teams of all age categories.

“As for the results of the national team at the European Championship in Germany, I believe that we did not show our full potential there. Our team is one of the youngest in this tournament, it has great potential. Of course, everyone was expecting a different result already. And we ourselves – the coaches, the players – are also disappointed.”

“I believe that after the first match in the group we made the right conclusions. But it is still difficult for me to explain why it happened in the game with Romania… We analyzed that first match with the players and already in the second, with Slovakia, we showed a different motivation. The same applies to the match with Belgium. Yes, we also made certain mistakes in those matches, but I believe that the most important thing is that Ukraine is represented in all the final tournaments. This is very important now, because there is a war going on in our country.”

“Now we need to analyze all the mistakes and start preparing for the autumn matches in the Nations League. We must take into account the experience we have gained and successfully begin the first full working cycle for our coaching staff at the helm of the national team.”

“It is important to remember that all our teams have qualified for the Euro – we are talking about two youth teams and the national team. The Olympic team will take part in the men’s football tournament of the Summer Games, and the youth team is the leader of its group after six rounds of the Euro 2025 (U-21) qualifiers.”

“We will collect information and, at the end of such a busy period, we will make a detailed analysis of our teams’ performances. We continue our comprehensive work on developing teams of all age categories, because this is our strategic task.”

The Ukrainian national team took fourth place in Group E and dropped out of Euro 2024. The key was the defeat to Romania (0:3) in the first round. For the first time in the history of the European Championship, a team with four points took the last place in its quartet.

According to the specialized portal Transfermarkt, the Ukrainian national team is the team with the most expensive rosterwhich was eliminated from Euro 2024 after the first stage. At the same time, the Ukrainian national team is the second youngest team in Euro 2024 to be eliminated after the group stage. The average age of the blue-yellows is 26.4 years.

In Group B1 of the 2024/2025 Nations League, Ukraine will play against the national teams of Albania, the Czech Republic and Georgia. The Ukrainian team will play all six matches in this quartet throughout the autumn of 2024.
