4 Oct. Tyrant. The Stadium “Selman Of Stermasi”.

The national team of Ukraine was successfully launched in the group stage of qualifying the 19-year-old. Not easy victory. The meeting debut remained for owners, and our goalkeeper Vladislav Kucheruk, representing in the team “Dinamo”, had to work hard, reflect the insidious attacks and stopping meant a considerable danger flanking the filing of the aggressive owners.

Very terrible was exemplary in the performance of the Whole Garden, playing for the youth team of the Greek PAOK. And fouled the charges of Oleksandr Petrakov often.

Over time, however, the Ukrainians managed to equalize the game, and 30 minutes forward “Dnepr-1”, having an experience of not only games, but also scoring goals at senior level, has opened the account.

The curtain of the first 45-minute broke out of passion, but the Danish referee Anders Poulsen dipped them in mustard, we have punishment it took two Alexander Belyaev and Avramenko.

In the beginning of the second half, Leandro leschi, representing the youth team of Spanish “Madrid”, roughly a cost of penalty with Dynamo Sergei Bouletai, but our only Legionnaire of the Spanish “alavesa” Alex Hahli could not beat the “point” of the shot is Pano Kirko.

In the future, there were moments at both gates, only one miner Oleksiy Kashchuk had three chances to double the score and in the 90th minute, his second ball was able to score Supryaga, but everything remained as it is.

In the other match of the group, which began two hours earlier, the Norwegians easily defeated the Montenegrins. The hero of the match was the son of the famous Norwegian defender alpha Inge Holland striker Molde Erling-Braut Holland, which we singled out in our preview. Montenegrins are unable to inspire even the presence of the President of the Federation, the legendary Dejan Savicevic.

On Saturday, the leaders will meet among themselves. It will be a match for the first place, the winner of which will receive an advantage in the “sowing” during the draw for the elite round.
