The head coach of the national team of Ukraine Andriy Shevchenko commented on the victory of blue and yellow in the control game with the Albanians.

“Now we aim more on the result, I asked the guys about it. Despite the fact that the championship ended and there was little time to recover, I asked the team to get the result, because the following games that are waiting for us, – the official. Attitude to the match was appropriate, and this was reflected on the field.

The first half was generally quite good, in the second we were asked to control the ball. The guys who came off the bench, successfully entered the game. The 4:1 speaks for itself. It’s a good rehearsal, which gives psychological confidence for the next matches. Now, I wished everyone good luck in their clubs: they will rest and begin preparation for the new season. In autumn we are waiting for serious matches.

I’m happy for Yarmolenko and happy for the team. Long-term rehabilitation after injury prevented Andrew to spend the end of the season in his club. We see its functional state, it is constantly improving and a positive thing for him is that he played two games, scored twice, had two assists.

What we have planned, failed. Of course, it’s worth noting that the Albanians gave us to do. In General, had a decent match. Most important for me will be the official games in September. Friendlies are necessary only for the preparation for such matches. It was important to me to see how players interact with partners and understand their position on the field, form the structure of the game,” said Shevchenko after the match with Albania.
