Ukraine with nine Dynamo players getting ready for Euro-2020 qualification start

On Monday Ukraine national team started preparations for the Euro-2020 qualification.

The Yellow-Blues head coach Andriy Shevchenko has called up nine FC Dynamo Kyiv performers: goalkeeper Denys BOIKO, defenders Mykyta BURDA, Artem SHABANOV, Vitaliy MYKOLENKO, halfbacks Serhiy SYDORCHUK, Viktor TSYHANKOV, Vitaliy BUIALSKYI, Mykola SHAPARENKO, and Volodymyr SHEPELEV.

Ukraine had the first training session at the NSC Olimpiyskyi. Traditionally fans were allowed to be present there. The session was mostly of reconditioning type, so players had enough time for autographs and photos with supporters.

On March 22 Ukraine will play the first Euro-2020 qualifier against Portugal in Lisbon and on March 25 the Yellow-Blues will face Luxembourg – also away.
