Former player of the national team of Ukraine Evgeny Levchenko shared his expectations from the play-off match for the 2022 World Cup against Scotland (June 1):
“The players of Shakhtar and Dynamo are already together. Although there was a hitch with Dynamo, not necessary, in my opinion, at that time. The match with Scotland, and everyone understands this, is the most important. I am sure that our team does not need concessions, Andriy Yarmolenko spoke about this recently. I am convinced that all our guys understand the price of the match in Glasgow. We need to go out on the field and fight for Ukraine.
The Scots are in a different psychological state. Our guys due to the strength of the spirit can win. Wards of Alexander Petrakov will unite to win a ticket to the World Cup. Here, even the coaches do not need to cheat anything – everyone understands everything anyway. We all understand that football is an important component in the life of our society. Times are very difficult, but Ukrainians need to be pleased.”
