This result allowed the Italians to directly qualify for the European Championship, and the Ukrainians will still have to play in the playoffs of the continental championship selection.

“It wasn't easy. You can't just qualify for the European Championships. As in football in general, nothing comes easy.
We played a good match, in the first half we had many opportunities to score. After we failed to implement them, the game became more messy and physically expensive. At that stage we were no longer talking about football.
Ukraine has demonstrated that it is a well-prepared team. She really created a lot of problems for us,” La Gazzetta dello Sport quotes Spalletti as saying.
Let us remind you that a video of the best moments and a review of the match Ukraine – Italy (0:0) is available on ISPORT.
