Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk can rightly be called the Ukrainian royal couple this European Championship.

The duo were responsible for Ukraine's two hits against the Netherlands and thanks to hits from the two attackers, Andrij Shevchenko's team leads 2-0 against North Macedonia halfway through.

27 minutes ago

Peace!

Ukraine has no child in North Macedonia and is ahead 2-0 halfway through hits from Yarmolenko and Miranchuk.

Goran Pandev thought to do something in return, but his beautiful marker was canceled due to offside.

With this score, the Orange squad can already take the first place in the group against Austria tonight.

29 minutes ago

2-0



Five minutes after the opening goal, Ukraine doubles the lead.

Yarmolenko sends Roman Yaremchuk away and the striker does a good job this time: he slides the ball into the short corner.

1-0



There's the long-awaited opening goal!

Andriy Yarmolenko first encounters Dimitrievski, but from the following corner he can tap the ball in at the far post.

21 'Ukraine is trying to destroy the defense of North Macedonia at a high pace, but in the final phase it often just doesn't fit.

Yarmolenko gets the opportunity to cut to his left leg after an outbreak, but Musliu manages to block his shot.

Yarmolenko was brilliantly accurate against the Netherlands.

16 'North Macedonia seems to have survived the first Ukrainian storm and is starting to report more.

A low cross from the right is worked into the side net by Elmas.

an hour ago

11 'Chance for Ukraine!

Roman Yaremchuk cleverly turns away and can continue towards the Macedonian target.

The striker of AA Gent can print, but chooses to go to Malinovskyi.

Kick off! 

Ukraine and North Macedonia are hunting for the first points at this European Championship.

For the Macedonians, that would be the first points ever in a final round.

an hour ago

The players come onto the field and in North Macedonia Goran Pandev leads the way.

He has just reported in the players tunnel and can therefore start, despite the premature termination of the warm-up.

an hour ago

Ukraine fans are ready in Bucharest.

an hour ago

Goran Pandev seems to have slipped in the warm-up and has disappeared into the catacombs.

So it remains to be seen whether the Macedonian eye-catcher will be kicking off in fifteen minutes.

2 hours ago

Orange therefore has an interest in the loss of points from Goran Pandev's North Macedonia.

If the Macedonians fail to beat Ukraine, the Netherlands will be crowned group winner tonight with a win over Austria.

That is at the expense of Oleksandr Zubkov and Serhiy Sydorchuk.

Simon Kjaer has reacted for the first time after the events surrounding Christian Eriksen. Kjaer played an important role as captain. He prevented Eriksen from swallowing his tongue, formed a human wall with his players to shield Eriksen and also comforted Eriksen's girlfriend.



"The moment was a shock that will always be a part of me - and all of us -. All that matters is that Christian is okay. I'm proud of how we've done as a team and how we stood side by side in these difficult times. I am touched and very grateful for all the support."



"We are going to play against Belgium with Christian in our hearts and minds. It gives us peace of mind, allowing us to focus on football. We are going to play for Christian and as always for all of Denmark. That is the biggest thing for all of us." motivation."

And in English: My words.

Following Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba, Manuel Locatelli, Italy's star last night, also replaced a bottle of Coke with a bottle of water.

In Pogba's case, it was a bottle of beer.

The UEFA doctor who resuscitated Christian Eriksen on the pitch after his heart attack has

told

Funke

in the German media 

about the moment Eriksen came around again.

"That was a very emotional moment. About thirty seconds after using the defibrillator, he opened his eyes and I was able to speak to him."


"I asked Eriksen if he had regained consciousness. 'Yes, I'm back among the people,' he replied. 'Damn, I'm only 29 years old.'

That's when I knew he hadn't suffered any brain damage and we got him all the way back."

Back to Rome for a moment, where Italy impressed again last night and recorded another well-signed 3-0 win, this time over Switzerland. 

La Gazzetta dello Sport 

raves about Roberto Mancini's team.

"The national coach has created a group that is so unified that it masks individual limitations. A group in which many good players can give more than at their clubs. Take Locatelli, who had a great season with Sassuolo, but his game in the national team. has been able to give an extra dimension. Italy seems to be able to beat anyone."
