[2024 European Cup Ukraine]From their historic struggles to their current quest for victory, dive into the heart of Ukraine's national football team!

Ukraine's national team was officially established in 1991, though it has a glorious history from its predecessors. However, since competing independently, Ukraine has repeatedly fallen short in its quest for major tournaments. In the 1998 World Cup qualifiers, they finished second in their group behind Germany, forcing them to enter the playoffs where they were eliminated by Croatia. The story repeated in the 2002 World Cup qualifiers and the 2000 European Championship qualifiers, both times losing in the playoffs. It wasn't until the 2006 World Cup qualifiers that Ukraine secured direct qualification, becoming the first European team to do so after a draw against Georgia. In their debut World Cup appearance in Germany, Ukraine emerged as a dark horse, advancing to the knockout stage but eventually falling to Italy in the quarter-finals. Despite subsequent attempts in the 2010 and 2014 World Cup qualifiers and the 2012 and 2016 European Championships, Ukraine faced disappointment. However, with the appointment of a new coach, Serhiy Rebrov, and a strong performance in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, Ukraine secured their spot in the tournament. Led by Rebrov, Ukraine progressed to the knockout stage and reached the quarter-finals, marking their best-ever performance in the European Championship. As they prepare for Euro 2024, Ukraine aims to build on their recent success and make a mark on the international stage once again.

Serhiy Rebrov, a former striker for Ukraine with an illustrious career, now leads the team as coach. With his experience both as a player and a coach, Rebrov brings a wealth of knowledge to the squad. Under his guidance, Ukraine has shown promising results, with a record of six wins, three draws, and only one loss in ten matches. The team's roster for Euro 2024 includes notable players such as goalkeeper Lunin from Real Madrid, defenders Mykolenko from Everton, and Zinchenko from Arsenal, among others. Midfielder Yarmolenko, who plays for Dynamo Kyiv, stands out as a key player with over 100 appearances for the national team. With a mix of experienced veterans and promising talents, Ukraine aims to make an impact in the upcoming tournament.

In the group stage, Ukraine faces Romania, Slovakia, and Belgium. While Belgium poses a significant challenge, Ukraine is confident in their abilities against Romania and Slovakia. As they aspire to replicate their success from the previous tournament, Ukraine's primary focus remains on advancing from the group stage. With thorough preparation and determination, Ukraine hopes to exceed expectations and continue their journey as a rising force in European football.
