The head coach of the Iceland national team Åge Hareide commented on the defeat from Ukraine in the final match of the play-off qualifying for Euro 2024.

Sergei Rebrov's team was inferior in the score before the break, but in the end won a strong-willed victory (2:1) and advanced to the final tournament of the European Championship.

“We felt good after the first half , but after the break everything did not go as we planned. Yes, we had the opportunity to counterattack, but due to the unfortunate position we received counterattacks on our own goal.

It seemed to me that in the final part of the match the team was tired, but still had a chance to equalize the score. We pressed, but it was not meant to be. Perhaps everything was decided by the greater depth of the opponent's squad. But this is normal when we are talking about such a large nation as the Ukrainians,” the UAF official website quotes Hareide as saying.

We would like to add that before the head-to-head match, the Icelandic coachspoke out about the war in Ukraine. A 70-year-old Norwegian specialist expressed solidarity with the Ukrainian people and said that his daughter hosted refugees from our country at home.

The Ukrainian national team will play in the final Euro 2024 tournament in Group E against Belgium, Slovakia and Romania.

The matches of the Euro 2024 final tournament from June 14 to July 14, 2024 will be held in Germany.
