On September 22, Ukrainians will play against the Serbian national team
Acting women’s head coach Ukrainian national team on football Vladimir Pyatenko spoke about the team’s preparation for the match League of Nations With Serbia.
“Serbia is a very aggressive team. They have no obvious weaknesses. This team has been playing together for many years, and it has a good “football” age, that is, quite experienced football players, there are leaders. We analyzed their game and see that weaknesses are emerging. We will also try to play aggressively, especially in attack.”
“Poland has paid a lot of attention to women’s football in recent years, so they are progressing. It will also be difficult, but I tell the players: just think about how difficult it is on the field, remember our defenders who are on the front line – it’s much more difficult there. Regarding Poland, we have not yet understood the nuances: now we are focused on Serbia.”
“The task is one – to win. Every training session I convey to the players that they only need to win. Therefore, we will go out onto the field and try to do everything to win every match.”
“Do you have any ambitions to compete for promotion in the division? Absolutely. And from the players, and from the coaching staff, and from the national team staff and fans. There is a desire to realize these ambitions on the site.”
The Ukrainian women’s team will hold its opening match of the 2023/24 Nations League with the Serbian national team in the Polish city of Starogard-Gdanski. The match will take place on September 22. In addition to Serbia, the Ukrainians in Group B3 will be opposed by Poland and Greece.
