Four teams from the former USSR are looking forward to the Euro Cup! Outgoing Group Brochures

Date: June 18, 2024 Time: 10:41:36

The matches of the 3rd and 4th round of the Euro 2024 qualifying phase have ended. In the absence of the Russian team, we closely follow the performance of the representatives of the former USSR. We remind you how the June matches turned out for these teams, and assess their chances of winning a ticket to the final stage of the European Championship.

Georgia national team: decisive “wet” defeat in Scotland

Georgia in the June rounds of qualifying for Euro 2024 gave two matches with different results. First, Cyprus won on the road (2: 1) – the first goal was scored by Mikautadze, and the second victorious goal was scored by the former Rubin, Rotor and Arsenal player Davitashvili. But three days later, the Georgian team lost to Scotland (0-2).

It was a spectacular game, which was stopped for an hour and a half because the rain flooded the field. Had Georgia won with Dynamo Gagnidze, they would have reduced the gap to the Scots to two points when he was on the bench. And so the gap increased to eight. Taking into account that Spain, busy in the League of Nations, continues to accelerate, it will be difficult to compete to get into the Eurocup.

Group A

Ukraine national team: determined victory and luck from the penalty spot

Ukraine held the first official matches under the leadership of the new coach Sergei Rebrov. The former “Rubin” striker led the team just two weeks ago and had only one “rehearsal” before his debut: a sparring match with Germany (3:3). Interestingly, according to Rebrov, the meeting with the Germans hindered the preparation for the match against North Macedonia rather than helped. However, Ukraine, losing after an hour of the match in Skopje with a score of 0:2, managed to win – 3:2. The goals were scored by Zabarny, Hemp and Tsygankov. Three days later they beat Malta with a crunch – 1:0. Everything was decided by Tsygankov’s goal from the penalty spot. Rebrov’s team sit second in the group, but the chances of competing with England and Italy are slim.

Group C

Armenian national team: six points in two days!

Armenian footballers are just handsome! They took six points in two rounds, starting with a sensational away win over Wales (4:2). It’s good that this happened with the participation of Russian football students Spertsyan, Tiknizyan and Arutyunyan. All three started both against the Welsh and in the next home game against Latvia (2:1). In Cardiff, Tiknizyan and Spertsyan scored assists (double by Celarayan and Ranos). In Yerevan, the Lokomotiv defender became the author of the hosts’ first goal. Armenia will fight for a ticket to Euro 2024. In terms of lost points, the team is not inferior even to the group leader Turkey, but only to Croatia.

Selection of Latvia: an outsider without options for the Eurocopa

If the Armenian team is ready to surprise in group D, Latvia is content with the usual role of extra actor. Dainis Kazakevich’s team started with three straight losses. True, in the June matches, the Latvians could take points from both Turkey (2:3) and Armenia (1:2). In a meeting with the Turks in Riga, the hosts twice bounced back thanks to goals from Emsis and Tobers. The latter scored in the 90+4 minute, but Latvia still did not save the tie; a minute later he conceded the third goal. In the match against Armenia, Tiknizyan’s goal was recovered with the help of an own goal from Mkrtchyan, but Latvia again did not hold at the end. In the 90+1 minute, Barseghyan converted the winning penalty.

Group D

Moldova national team: the former striker of “Zenith” is ready to create a miracle

Moldova’s entry into Euro 2024 would be a true miracle, but it seems that a team led by former Zenit striker Sergei Kleshchenko is ready to create it. This team is only one point behind second place and ahead of Poland (however, when playing in the reserve with the competitors). In the third round, Moldova lost to Albania in Tirana – 0:2. On Tuesday, June 20, things also seemed to be going to defeat in the home game with Poland: Kleshchenko’s team trailed after the first half by the same score 0:2. Lewandowski and the company apparently relaxed, and Moldova suddenly showed power. Beitar striker Nikolaescu scored a brace, after which Baboglo finished off the surprised favorite in the 85th minute.

Group E

Estonian national team: helping Lukaku find himself

The Estonian team, like Latvia, is not ready to join the fight for a ticket to the Eurocup. In three games, the Swiss coach Thomas Heberli’s team has only one draw and two losses. Also, this is the only point scored in the June match with Azerbaijan (1:1) away from home. The Estonians even won in the course of the match after Sappinen’s goal, but they did not get the victory. This was followed by a home loss to Belgium with a score of 0:3. The locals held out for 36 minutes and then Lukaku scored what he had not scored in the Champions League final. The forward double “Inter” quickly destroyed the intrigue.

Azerbaijan national team: former Spartak player saved from defeat

Azerbaijan in the same group suddenly became an outsider, although in terms of potential, perhaps, it could count on more. However, the start of the qualifying round for Euro 2024 did not work out for Gianni De Byasi’s team: 0 wins, two losses and only one point. In June, the Azerbaijan national team played only one qualifying match for the European Championship. The result of the home game with Estonia (1:1) hardly pleased anyone in Azerbaijan. But at least we managed to avoid defeat thanks to Krivotsyuk’s goal at the end of the hour. He was assisted by former Russia and Spartak youth team player Emin Makhmudov.

Group F

Lithuanian national team: elimination deprived of the first victory

The Baltic countries are not very strong in football. So, Lithuania, like Latvia and Estonia, modestly occupies a place in the basement of the table. The team of former CSKA and Torpedo striker Edgaras Jankauskas played three games in qualifying for Euro 2024, managed a draw and lost twice. In the third round, the Lithuanians played at home in a draw with Bulgaria – 1:1. They scored first – Girdvainis scored. But they quickly lost the eliminated player and soon failed. It’s good that the opponent only had one goal. And three days later, the Lithuanian national team lost on the way to Hungary with a score of 0:2.

Group G

Kazakhstan national team: the Russian coach makes history

Kazakhstan, under the guidance of Russian coach Magomed Adiev, continues to amaze. After four rounds, his team shares first place with Finland (9 points each), even ahead of Denmark and Slovenia. In June, the Kazakh national team warmed up for the first time with the “sacks” of San Marino (3:0). Zenit’s Alip, Akhmat’s Bystrov started, CSKA’s Zainutdinov and Khimki’s Skvortsov came on as replacements. Zainutdinov scored the third goal, and Vorogovsky and Tagybergen became the authors of the first two. After that, Kazakhstan finished off Northern Ireland on the road due to Aimbetov’s late goal. The RPL quartet played again, and Zainutdinov made the starting lineup.

Group H

Belarusian team: won for the first time in two years

It is unlikely that Belarus will be able to chase Switzerland, Romania and Israel, but in June there was a big event for this team – the first victory in an official match in two years! An unpleasant series lasted from March 2021. However, the June performance in Georgy Kondratiev’s Euro 2024 qualifying team began with a defeat for Israel (1:2). Belarus were in the lead after Ebon’s goal, but conceded two late goals. But three days later, the same victory happened, over Kosovo (2:1). The authors of the goals were Morozov and Ebon. In these meetings, Pechenin, Kaplenko, Kovalev (all – Orenburg), Yuzepchuk (Torpedo) and Selyava (Rostov) played for the national team.
