The Ukrainian Olympic team confidently beat Panama at an international tournament in France

Goals from Voloshin and Yarmolyuk helped the Rotan team achieve a third straight win

Ukrainian Olympic team continued her winning streak at the international friendly tournament Tournoi Maurice Revello. In the third round of the group stage, the blue-yellows confidently defeated the team Panama U-23 – 2:0.

Ruslan Rotan’s team had a significant advantage, but were unable to convert it into goals before the break. But after the 60th minute it broke through: first, Nazar Voloshin hit the goal with a precise shot after Nikolai Mikhailenko’s deflection (it is also worth noting the participation of 17-year-old Gennady Sinchuk in the scoring attack), and soon the fresh Yegor Yarmolyuk punished the goalkeeper for a blunder.

Panama also looked to attack, especially in the second half. At 0:1, Angel Aurélien missed a good chance; at 0:2, CONCACAF representatives had several approaches to the Ukrainian goal, but they failed to really strain Ruslan Neshcheret.

Ukraine won three victories in three rounds with a total goal difference of 9:0. Let us remind you that earlier in the tournament the Rotan team defeated Indonesia U-20 (3:0) and Italy U-21 (4:0). The blue-and-yellows are one step away from early access to the finals. On June 10, Monday, the Ukrainians will play the last match of the group round against Japan U-19.

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.
