Andriy Shevchenko


Sports news: the head coach of the national team of Ukraine Andriy Shevchenko said that he would be cheering for Croatia in the final match of the 2018 world Cup.

“I Croats have always been pleased. There were a lot of my friends. In the world Cup final I’ll be rooting for Croatia. Croatia has a very balanced team — compact in all respects. They are good at pressing not only in their own half, and attacking too large force. Now Croatia are all well formed. There are players who do not fight on the field — they are constantly searching. Never open, playing very well. They have long been such a figure and such a structure of the game. But now there is balance. It is very important that all the performers are well prepared physically and motivated. It’s such a great chance for a small country to win the world Cup.

It contains players who are playing in strong Championships, and their body is accustomed to certain loads . Croats competing with the best players of the world win this competition. They have long adapted to this rhythm of competition and this tension. But in the final they will play against France — a very good team and it will be an exciting match” — quoted Shevchenko’s “Team No. 1”.
