Andriy Shevchenko after Ukraine and England: “The match was played on the facts of the match”

Andriy Shevchenko, Ukraine coach, knocked out of the European Championship quarter-final against England 0-4: “For me, I played the match based on the facts of the match. England were stronger in the air and we lost the central defender (Kravtsov, who was released in the first period) which could have made them more uncomfortable. In my opinion, that defines the meaning of the game. It is true that There was also a drop in focus at the start of the second half, but the problem was in the air. I think Ukraine still do well, despite all the absences and difficulties in the workforce. We always tried to play well.

I don’t think we gave up on football. Krivtsov’s injury did not help, he is an experienced defender. Ken? He was efficient and scored the chances he had in a tournament of this caliber, and that’s what makes the difference. England were efficient, knew how to use our mistakes, and controlled the match. We also had good opportunities, but we didn’t succeed in achieving them. Will I still be a coach in September? The Euro is now over, and we’ll sum up the tournament, and evaluate what we’ve done. The union will have to make a decision, but there is time for this, and no one is in a hurry. “
