Ukraine and Iceland have met four times

On Tuesday, March 26, the Ukrainian national football team will play the final face-to-face match of the 2024 European Championship qualifying tournament in Germany. Serhii Rebrov's team will face Iceland, which achieved this right after defeating Israel with a score of 4-1.

The match in Wroclaw will be the fourth in the history of the confrontation between the two teams. Of the four attempts for the Ukrainians, only one ended in victory. The triumph occurred in September 1999 in Reykjavik when the rivals were in the same group in the qualification for the continental championship.

The match itself turned out to be very difficult for our compatriots, who were then managed by Jozsef Szabo. Despite the star-studded lineup, the Ukrainians managed to score only once. Before the break, the home team brought down Andrii Shevchenko in their penalty area, and the current national team coach converted the 11-meter penalty.

In the second half, the Icelanders gave up trying to win back the game and stormed Oleksandr Shovkovskyi's goal for a long time. The hosts attacked especially dangerously in the final minutes. However, they failed to equalize. Here is a video review of the match.

It should be recalled that the meeting between Ukraine and Iceland on March 26, in which a ticket to Euro 2024 will be drawn, will take place at the Tarczynski Arena stadium in Wroclaw. OBOZ.UA will provide an online broadcast of the match. The game starts at 21:45 Kyiv time. The teams have met four times. The opponents have one victory and two draws.
