A thread dedicated to the Ukrainian National Team!


Oleh Blokhin named his squad for the World Cup Qualification game against Turkey on November 17 in Istanbul.

Goaltenders: Shovkovsky and Reva

Defenceman: Fedorov, Nesmachny, Dmitrulin, Rusol, Matiukhin, Radchenko, Yezersky, Starostiak, Checher

Midfielders: Gusev, Bidnenko, Husyn, Rotan, Nazarenko, Shelayev, Zakarliuka

Strikers: Belyk, Vorobey, Venhlynsky, Shevchenko, Voronin

Looks like a good team again, although Vorobey must prove himself this time around.

I predict a 0-0 draw which will be an excellent result for the Ukraine.

Shovkovsky is a great keeper imo, and if Turkey manage to dictate the tempo he will be crucial. we'll see if the Ukrainian players are able to provide Sheva some descent service. if not, i predict, 0-0 or 1-0 for Turkey.

We will really miss Tymoschuk, he is our best defensive midfielder and without him I don't even know where will Blokhin find two defensive mids to hold the Turkish offensive minded midfield.

Yes, he is indeed a big loss. A tie would be a spectacular result...

And yes, that's Taras Shevchenko

Well, it was Taras Shevchenko...

Here is some good news, Ukraine moved up 13 places into 67th in the Coca Cola World Rankings.

I know that the Rankings are crap, but it's nice to see our team move up...

Ukraine have added Midfielders Olexandr Rykun (Dnipro) and Olexandr Zotov (Metalurg) to the team to face Turkey.

Oleh Blokhin has sent Checher, Zotov and Zakarliuka home after numerous violations of team rules and discipline...

Kind of suprising, all of them were important to the team in one way or another but if it has to be done then so be it.
