Tomorrow in Lviv, which is considered lucky for the Ukraine national team (10 wins in 12 matches and two draws with a total score of 30:7), team Mykhailo Fomenko will make another step towards the final tournament of Euro 2016. In the parallel match, Spain will take on Slovakia, so we have a chance to reduce the gap to the leader by half.
But you need to make sure we beat Belarus, for which the game in Lviv is crucial. To keep the chances of getting into the playoffs, our Northern neighbors need a win in Lviv. Otherwise, as said steering Belarusians Alexander Khatskevich, to finish the selection team will be for the honor of the flag.
The Loss Of Belarus
The team of Belarus is experiencing serious personnel losses. Originally on the guest list by the coaching staff not included four representatives of foreign clubs — Midfielders Krivets (“Mets”), Putilo (Gaziantepspor) and Balanovich (Amkar) and defender verkhovtsov (“Ufa”). The latter two are injured, and Krivets Putilo and have not received a call by a decision Khatskevich. However, Putilo in the selection and was an important figure — he has only two choices for the replacement and 13 minutes.
And as the play progresses it turned out that not assistants team defenders Poles and Udoji. However, even without them, the Belarusians are quite serious composition, in which the tone is set by skilled craftsmen — Hleb, Kalachev and Kornilenko. Although the same Kornilenko is now virtually no adequate replacement, and in the first round of qualification at the point of attack was nominated Midfielders Dragoons and Bressan.
To attack have questions and Mikhail Fomenko. Otherwise, it would not cause, in addition to already invited to the forwards Seleznyov Budkivskiy Kravets and even and Smooth, which in 11 matches this season, scored for Shakhtar scored two goals. However, both games selection CL “Fenerbahce” and “rapid”. But it’s better than stats Kravets (one goal in the Cup match in Komsomolsk) and Budkovskyy (two goals Olympique de Marseille in nine games of the season).
Only Seleznev scored more Smooth — three times in seven games. But the problem is that Fomenko does not favor nor Smooth (played just 27 minutes in September 2014 in the friendly against Moldova) nor Seleznev (67 minutes in the June games with Georgia and Luxembourg). So for 2014-2015.
Not everything is clear and protected, taking into account permanent injury Kucera. But with the defense we have the order (missing only two goals in six matches), whereas the score in the wrong goal — problem. And us in September need two wins…
