The head coach of Olimpik Donetsk Vyacheslav Shevchuk told about the progress of Alexander Zinchenko at Manchester city and how this might affect his role in the national team.
“Zinchenko in the near future is the captain of the national team of Ukraine. He’s a leader on the field, he is professional, he is a strong-willed person.
He is a player of the starting lineup, which shows a very Mature game. He is a charismatic. This is very important.
In the attacking positions in the team come the Brazilians. The players come that some of the gifted in Brazil. Still a lot of money. Ukrainian players only Kovalenko can compete with them. And that was the period when he was very difficult. Because of this Boryachuk, Zubkov, Ignatenko difficult to compete, and they play in Mariupol. Although, this is the best young players of Ukraine. Well, there are Matvienko, it should not be forgotten. Nicholas also managed to break into the first team.
And Zinchenko is an example for many. It is his attitude, his character shows that he deserves to be at Manchester city for a top club.
Would have stayed with Sasha miner, it would be difficult to progress. He done that bends the line, working and working,” said Vyacheslav Shevchuk.
Portugal – Ukraine – 0:0
March 22, in Lisbon, at the stadium “Da Luz”, the Portuguese team took the national team of Ukraine.
The team of Andriy Shevchenko survived the difficult match. Throughout the match, Ronaldo and company attacked the gate of the Ukrainians. Several times a game Andriy Pyatov made classy saves. Our boys also ran to the counter and could have scored. The curtain of the meeting was a great chance to snatch victory. Yevhen Konoplyanka struck from afar, Rui patrício has not fixed the ball in his hands and some centimetres has not sufficed Junior Moraes to be the first on the rebound.
