Today, the Ukrainian national team plays a play-off match in the 2022 World Cup against Scotland. The online broadcast of the Scotland – Ukraine match is already on our website.
On the eve of the match, former Tartan Army football player James McFadden shared his concerns about the yellow-blue extreme linebacker Vitaly Mikolenko. According to the famous Scot, Mykolenko can cause problems for hosts.
When Mikolenko just moved to Everton, he wasn’t sure, but Frank Lampard managed to convince him to play. In recent games, he looked brilliant. He is a young player who will continue to develop. He played great, and Scotland will have to take care of him because it’s such an important match.
Atrocities are taking place in Ukraine now, and you will not wish on the enemy. I am happy that the Ukrainian players feel they can play. If they are satisfied and ready to play, I’m glad the game continues. It will be an experience I’ve never had before – playing against a team that has a lot going on at home.
It’s going to be a strange day, but Vitaly Mikolenko was great. He’s been playing really well for Everton over the past few weeks. We have to make sure we don’t let him break through the portal. hopefull He will not hit a single kick from the edge of the penalty area“Just like it was against Leicester,” McFadden said in an interview with Everton.
