Stepanenko: We really want to get to the championship

Степаненко: Нам очень хочется попасть на чемпионат Европы

Ukraine midfielder Taras Stepanenko has told about his expectations from match against Belarus, which will take place on 5 September in Lviv.

“Of course we want to take place, giving the right to go directly to the European championship. But there are options. If we get the highest score among all the teams that will occupy the third place, we too will go in France. Now it is important to score maximum points.

One day with me in the youth team does not have enough points to become the best third team. We really want to get to the championship. Bitter experience I have, so we need to cherish every paragraph.

I once played against Belarus in the last match. Remember that we scored only at the end, and that was an own goal. They have changed coach who improved the team. Will be a tough game,” believes Stepanenko.
