The Ukrainian Association of Football (UAF) announced the list of players who received a call-up to the Ukrainian national team for the June matches of Euro 2024 qualification, as well as a friendly game against Germany.
This was reported on the official website of the UAF.
27 players have been called up to the Blue-Yellows camp. Five more players were included in the reserve list.
The upcoming matches of the national team will be missed by London Arsenal player Oleksandr Zinchenko, who was out until the end of the season due to injury.
Also, compared to the March training camp, Polish Cracovia winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, who played for the Ukrainian national team for the first time since September 2024 in the opening match of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against England, did not receive a call-up to the main team of the country.
Who formed the list of players for the June training camp is not reported. At the same time, the UAF notes that in the near future the national team of Ukraine will receive a new head coach.
Earlier, a number of reputable media reported that it will be Serhiy Rebrov, whose contract with the Emirati Al-Ain expires this summer.
