UEFA Euro 2016 Ukraine Vs Northern Ireland Preview

Ukraine must be very upset from their first loss in the Euro 2016 and would like to bounce back in this match.

The most disappointing thing for Ukraine was that they did not manage to score a single goal and this shows that lack of attacking football from this team.

On the other side, Northern Ireland ranked no 15 in the FIFA ranking and is also sailing on the same boat as Ukraine.

As this team has also lost its first match against Poland  by 0-1 on Sunday but this team shows their great character in the defence but was not able to reach their opponent’s net.

This could prove to be the major issue for the Northern Ireland’s think tank and the management need to ask their players to play some attacking football in this match against the Ukraine.

This is the second major tournament for Northern Ireland team after their first association in the 1986 world cup.

UKRAINE PREDICTED LINEUP( 4-2-3-1)

Pyatov, Fedetskiy, Khacheridhi, Rakitskiy, Shevchuk, Sydrorchuk, Stepanenko, Yarmolenko, Kovalenko, Konoplyanka, Zozulya.

NORTHERN IRELAND PREDICTED LINEUP(3-5-1-1)

Mc Govern, McAuley, Evans, Cathcart, Mclaughlin, McNair, Norwood, Ferguson, Davis, Lafferty.

PREDICTION

There is a possibility that this match may result in the draw as both teams have a solid defence.

But the team who is looking minor is Northern Ireland and the Ukraine is looking favourite to clinch a much-needed win.
