What Group is Ukraine in?

Ukraine was sitting with the best odds, outside of Belgium to advance out of the group, but now that has lengthened to . They had the second-best odds to win Group E but are now longshots at odds.

They overcame a tough qualifying group and managed to grab a draw against England and Italy. In a short group stage, Ukraine can manage to pull off a result against Belgium and grab points against Romania and Slovakia to make a run at winning the group.

How Ukraine qualified for Euro 2024

It was a tough path for Ukraine to advance to the 2024 Euros, with England and Italy in their qualifying group. They finished level on points with Italy but failed to surpass them on goal differential. This allowed England and Italy to move through, while Ukraine advanced to the Nations League playoffs. Mykhailo Mudryk scored a winning goal over Iceland to send them through.

Ukraine likely starting lineup

  • GK -Andriy Lunin
  • DF – Yukhym Konoplya
  • DF – Illya Zabarnyi
  • DF – Mykola Matviyenko
  • DF – Vitaliy Mykolenko
  • MF – Oleksandr Zinchenko
  • MF – Ruslan Malinovskyi
  • MF – Viktor Tsyhankov
  • MF – Heorhiy Sudakov
  • MF – Mykhailo Mudryk
  • ATT – Artem Dovbyk

Notable Players

Ukraine bolsters one of the deeper squads in the tournament but their notable players tend to be a bit streaky. Mykhailo Mudryk has largely been disappointing at Chelsea but has flashed the reasons why he was a high paid transfer target. The inconsistency has came during qualifiers but he is going to be a key threat for Ukraine’s attack. The same goes for Artem Dovbyk, who made a move to Girona and has helped take them to another level in La Liga.

Zinchenko is one of the squad’s most capped players and has the versatility to play in a wing-back role and press ahead with the midfielders. He will likely be asked to link up with the young wingers to help provide runs on the counter, especially against Belgium. Mykolenko was a part of a sturdy Everton backline and Zabarnyi also had a strong performance at Bournemouth. There is plenty of experience in the backline of this group that should see them out of the group stage.
