Youth team of Ukraine (U-17) successfully passed the qualification round of the qualifying tournament of the European championship-2018.

The minimum objective release to the elite round of the Ukrainian team, led by Oleg Kuznetsov, decided on Friday, after defeating tournament hosts Bulgaria and even Azerbaijan’s national team – 6:1. Were scored by different players for any taste: Mikhail Mudrik, Roman, Jakub, Daniel, Sickan, Alan the Aussie, Stanislav Bublik and Artem Szulanski.

It’s a pity only that is not enough one ball, and that allowed our main competitor – Ireland before an internal meeting in the final round, ahead of the Ukrainian team on goal difference.

Therefore, DRA removed the Irish in the first place, and this is important because the results of matches in groups affect the “dispersion when the draw for the elite round, which will take place on 6 December in Nyon. By the way, the Irish were considered the favorites. The average odds on them winning were about 2.1:1, our is 3.1:1.

Alas, the players, the emerald Isle of the bookmaker’s predictions confirmed. Conceding in the first half from Dynamo Vincent Voloshin, after the break, they made full use of the advantage in physical power.

In the end, they finished the first, our second.
