The head coach of the youth national team of Scotland football Cattle Gemmell on the eve of today’s match selection for Euro 2019 (U-21) team gave the traditional press conference.
The coach of the youth team Scotland Scott Gemmell shared with the media expectations from today’s match with the Ukrainian team:
“We expect a very difficult match. After all, when we played against Ukraine in Scotland, our opponents controlled the match and acted at a very high level. Ukraine is a very good team, its players are strong, both physically and technically. In addition, the Ukrainian team has a strong character, which is very important.
I don’t want to highlight anyone of the perpetrators of the opponent specifically. They all pose a threat to our goal. During a match in Scotland the Ukrainians created a lot of chances, so we need to be careful in defense.
In the youth team of Ukraine there are several players who wore the national team’s uniform. There are players in our team. Chris Cadden and Lewis Morgan. Unfortunately, we have some personnel losses, we will not be able to play with two performers who took part in the victorious match against the Netherlands.
Tomorrow’s game will certainly be very important to solve the problem of reaching the next stage of the tournament. But most importantly, we give young players to prove themselves at this level, which is already near the level of the national team.
We arrived in Ukraine on Tuesday and amazed by the hospitality of Ukrainians. I can only thank you for such a warm welcome” – quoted by Scott Gemmell ffu.ua.
