The national team of Ukraine ended in a draw and its fifth match of the qualifying tournament.

The second round of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers took place on Saturday. The meeting, which took place at the NSC Olimpiyskiy in Kyiv, ended with a score of 1: 1.

In the middle of the half, Griezmann’s shot posed a potential danger, which turned out to be a little inaccurate, but after that the blue-yellows forced the world champions to take more care of the defense for a long time. The territorial advantage in those minutes was on the side of the Ukrainians, and the cleverly played corner could well have ended with the goal, but Lloris parried Yarmolenko’s shot, and Zabarny missed the finish. The penalty kick by Petrakov’s team was also sharp, culminating in Yarmolenko’s header against the goalkeeper.Related: FIFA World Cup qualification: Ukraine fails to beat Kazakhstan

Just before the break, the tricolors seemed to come to their senses and counterattack, and if it weren’t for Pyatov, who won the duel against Marseille, the score could have changed. But he changed in favor of the blue-yellows: after Yaremchuk’s breakthrough, the ball bounced to Shaparenko, who drove him into the top corner from 18 meters!

At the beginning of the second half, the guests played back. The team made a canopy from the right flank, Tymchyk prevented Rabio from breaking through at the cost of the injury, but Marsial was successful in the rebound. 1: 1. The Blue and Yellows responded with a series of dangerous passes to the penalty area and made several corners, one of which ended with a shot by Kryvtsov, who came to Rabio.

The national team of Ukraine ended in a draw and its fifth match of the qualifying tournament.
