The national team of Ukraine will play with Bosnia: where to watch the match
Now & # 171; yellow-blue & # 187; are second after France with 8 points.
Today, on October 12, the Ukrainian national team will play the penultimate match of the group round of the qualifying round for the 2022 World Cup. In rivals, & # 171; yellow-blue & # 187; will be Bosnia and Herzegovina, reports Chronicle.info with reference to RBC.
Alexander Petrakov's wards approach this fight with a little relief & # 8212; finally, in the match with Finland, Ukraine managed to get its first victory in the current selection. And two rounds before the end, it is the Ukrainians who are the favorites for the second place in the group, which gives the right to compete for a ticket to Qatar through the playoffs. Now & # 171; yellow-blue & # 187; come second behind France with 8 points. Bosnia and Finland have 6 and 5 points each and a match in reserve, respectively. But the fate of Ukrainians now depends solely on ourselves and this makes us happy.
The main issue on the eve of the meeting with the Bosnians was the state of Andrei Yarmolenko and Eduard Sobol & # 8212; the latter, due to damage, was able to play with the Finns only the first half, and the first received a slight injury at the end of the same fight. But, according to Petrakov, everyone is in optimal condition for the upcoming match.
& # 171; We are fine, there are no losses & # 187;, & # 8212; The coach of the Ukrainians briefly answered the journalists' question.
The coach of the national team also added that he was ready for a duel with the Bosnians, although he admitted that he began preparations after the game with Finland.
& # 171; I did not watch the matches of Bosnia and Herzegovina in advance, I was busy with Finland. And when they boarded the plane, they immediately gave me information. I watched the games of the Bosnians with Kazakhstan and France & # 187 ;, & # 8212; said Petrakov.
But as far as motivation is concerned, here the team does not need to be specially tuned, the head coach of the & # 171; yellow-blue & # 187; noted.
& # 171; We just mentioned that I know them since 2010. When they were young, they needed motivation. Now they & # 8212; experienced players who don't need to say anything. They know everything. We can't even play a draw & # 187 ;, & # 8212; he added.
As for Bosnia, our rivals also depend on them. Until the end of the selection, they have 3 matches & # 8212; two with Ukrainians and one with Finns. Therefore, they also do not need to tune in once again. The main weapon of the Bosnians & # 8212; ageless Edin Dzeko, who at 35 moved to & # 171; Inter & # 187; and has already scored six goals in seven games for the Italian champion. But another of the leaders of the Bosnians, Miralem Pjanic, will not play with the Ukrainians.
& # 171; After Kazakhstan, the match with Ukraine will be one of the most important, since we have three key games left with our direct competitors in the fight for second place in the group. Expectations before the game with Ukraine? I am determined to score a goal, but the best result will be 2: 0 in our favor & # 187 ;, & # 8212; noted Dzeko.
The fight will take place in Lviv at & # 171; Lviv-arena & # 187; at 21:45. The match will be broadcast on TV channels & # 171; Ukraine & # 187; and & # 171; Football 1 & # 187 ;.
