Former Ukraine midfielder Oleg Gusev remembered how the national team was led by Myron Markevych.
“In the first collection Markevych I, by the way, could not come. Almost half a year missed due to injury. In the winter I did in Belgium arthroscopy of the knee, but then it turned out that the operation was unsuccessful. Had to redo it in two weeks. So spring has barely played.
In the last round of the championship of Ukraine spent 45 minutes in the match with Metalurh Zaporizhya, but a call to the national team of Ukraine still received. We had scheduled three friendlies against Lithuania in Kharkiv, against Romania in Lviv, with Norway in Oslo. In all three games came out in the first team, and all those games we won. Of course, we have changed the training process, test, as when Oleg Blokhin, has not exactly been, another was tactics. The atmosphere was calm and friendly, it was obvious that Myron Bohdanovych eyeing the team.
Then, the team had created a special Fund, and we had a record award in sparring during my performances in the national team. But before the first matches the players did not know about them, so played, certainly not for the money. Went penalty from Alexandr Aliyev, was scored by Andriy Shevchenko, your premiere goals for the team Yevhen Konoplyanka and Roman Zozulya. The beginning was really great” – said Gusev.
We will remind, Markevitch led the national team of Ukraine from February to August 2010, resigned after a conflict with the FFU.
