Ukraine hosts Finland in round 2 of the World Cup Qualification. The match will be played on Sunday, March 28th at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium (Kyiv).
Andriy Shevchenko will have to conduct this qualifying cycle against the backdrop of an impending generational change. The recent leaders of the team, namely, Yarmolenko, Marlos, Konoplyanka, and Pyatov, have clearly slowed down in the current season. Soon, the coaching staff will have to look for substitutes for the leading players. Ukraine has shown a quality game in the qualification for Euro 2020 and will take part in the continental tournament. Beyond that, the Yellow-Blues performed well in the UEFA Nations League. A scattering of young talents appeared in the squad, and the future of this national team in them. Tsygankov, Shaparenko, Mykolenko, Zabarnyi, Trubin, and Matvienko are already ready to be important players in the first eleven. Malinovskyi, Yaremchuk, and Zinchenko gradually became the leaders of Ukraine.
The Finns have not been a powerful force at the international level for a long time. But the current team is ready to fight for points with any opponent. Markku Kanerva's charges play in a pragmatic style that allowed them to take second place in the group in the UEFA Nations League. Tactically, the team works with three central defenders, laterals, and a powerful combination of players in the midfield. There are only a few footballers who play at a high club level - Pukki from Norwich, Joronen from Brescia, G. Camara from Rangers, and Forss from Brentford. The rest of the performers play either in the Finnish championship or in other more modest European championships.
The match will be played until the first mistake of one of the teams, which could become fatal. Finland will come to Kyiv to play defense first and realize its counterattacking potential. Shevchenko's charges love to control the ball and gradually loosen the defensive orders of their opponents. Therefore, we think that the teams will please us with an exchange of goals scored.
