“I want to tell you one thing. Winning is important if you bring another win. This doesn’t have to mean the end. On the contrary, it should be a great reason to improve your game in the next match. It will be a difficult match against Belgium.”

“Sensational atmosphere. I really liked our stands. For the first time I saw the Romanian team being supported in unison. The players’ reaction was immediately visible. We were more motivated than the Ukrainians.”

“First we need to get out of the group. Each match has its own story. Today our success was provoked by a very big mistake by Lunin. That 1:0 score changed the equation. It was a sensational victory.”

Sergei Rebrov’s team, having lost by a large score, closes the standings of Group E. The Ukrainian team cannot keep a clean sheet in all 12 matches at four European Championships; In addition, the blue-yellows conceded three times in the opening match for the second forum in a row.
