Head coach of the Ukrainian national team Sergey Rebrov on his Instagram account he shared his emotions from the decisive Euro 2024 qualifying match against the Italian national team (0:0):
“Mixed emotions after yesterday’s game. Although the fact that we failed to score the winning goal to directly qualify for the EURO and the very controversial incident at the end of the match leave a bitter undertone, I can only thank the guys for this game and look forward to the future March playoffs with optimism.
This team fought until the last second in the most difficult selection group and did not lose to the current European champions on points – I think this indicates that it really deserves a place in them.
Thank you to Leverkusen for your hospitality and to our fans for their support.”
