Ukraine-North Macedonia, chronicle of the first half
Pandev has been on the field from the 1st minute, after the Macedonian striker complained of muscle problems in the prematch warm-up phase. Coach Angelovski deployed Elmas to support the Genoa player, initially leaving Trajkovski on the bench. Ukraine immediately takes control of the game: ball turns and verticalizations to put the opponents in difficulty. The national team coached by coach Shevchenko arrives in the goal zone with Yarmolenko, Karavaev, Yaremchuk and Malinovskyi, but the Macedonian goalkeeper Dimitrievski is saved with the help of the defense. The result, however, is unlocked in the 28th minute: corner from the right of the Macedonia goal, in the middle of the area Karavaev extends the ball with his heel on the far post where he sling Yarmolenko, burning Ristovski’s marking, and bags into the net for Ukrainian advantage!
Immediate doubling after 6 minutes: this time Yaremchuk scored the goal, well assisted by a pass from Yarmolenko that on the right is dominating. Macedonia trying to raise its head, but Pandev’s 39th goal was canceled by the Argentine referee Rapallini for offside. At half-time Ukraine took the lead by 2a0.
Ukraine-North Macedonia, chronicle of the second half
The recovery starts with Macedonia which makes two changes: inside Trajkovski and Churlinov, Nikolov and Spirovski remain in the locker rooms. Immediately ahead of the Macedonians, Pandev serves Ademi well and the Ukrainian goalkeeper Bushchan is careful to save himself. The newly entered Trajkovski starts a right turn that Bushchan, with the help of the wood, removes from the intersection of the posts, but on the rebound Karavaev hits Pandev in an attempt to move away and commits a foul. Penalty kick: Alioski takes charge of it and gets the shot intercepted by the Ukrainian goalkeeper Bushchan, but the Macedonian 16 is quick to collect the rejected and bag the net. Race reopened: 2a1! Ukraine returns to grind game. Dimitrievski engaged by a violent right from Malinovskyi, but the conclusion is central. Trajkovski took over with the right attitude, which worries Bushchan with another poisonous shot that the Ukrainian goalkeeper sends for a corner. Twenty minutes from the end, coach Shevchenko calls the scorers Yarmolenko and Yaremchuk to the bench, inside Besiedin and Tsygankov with consequent passage to the 4-4-1-1 module. Ukraine could close the case in the 84th with a penalty awarded by the Argentine referee Rapallini for a wide elbow of the substitute Avramovski, who hits the ball kicked by Malinovskyi on a side free kick. From 11 meters the same Atalanta midfielder presents himself, but his shot, aimed at the right of the Macedonian goalkeeper, is countered by Dimitrievski.
Final assaults by North Macedonia, but the result does not change. Ukraine wins 2a1.
