Former player “Dynamo” and the national team of Ukraine, and now a specialist in TC “Football” Victor Leonenko In the 2022 World Cup selection match, the “blue-yellow” draw with Bosnia and Herzegovina (1: 1) summarized the results of the draw.
“We started well in the first half but the Bosnians could have scored in the end. The first half was even and all the fans probably liked it. There were a lot of chances on both sides. The Bosnians looked fresh and felt at home. It will be very difficult for us to walk away…
The backups didn’t help us either. Yaremchuk did not play well. I would usually put Dovbik in the base. I want to highlight Pyatov, who played well. Yarmolenko also played a good game: he was active, he scored, but was physically lacking the entire match. This is due to the lack of practice to play at the club on a regular basis. Zinchenko and Malinovsky could not save the situation, as the whole team failed in the second half.
In the second half, our players got up and started to carry us on the field. We could have scored three more goals. We replied only with the dangerous moment of Tymchik.
I hope we will prepare well for the final match with the Bosnians. We will root for the whole team. Bosnia is not a weak team and is not ashamed of losing. It’s customary to just praise our players and then swear. That’s a problem,” said Leonenko.
