Yagupova will not help the national team

Ukraine's women's national team has begun preparing for the first EuroBasket 2025 qualifying matches against Serbia and Portugal.

Unfortunately, Alina Yahupova, the longtime leader and captain of the Ukrainian national team, will not be able to help the national team in the upcoming matches. On Saturday, November 4, our basketball player suffered an ankle injury in a Turkish league match while playing for Mersin.

According to doctors, Alina will be able to return to training in 10-14 days, which makes it impossible for her to participate in the upcoming European Championship qualifiers.

The coaching staff will not call up a player to replace Yagupova, so 11 basketball players will be preparing for the upcoming matches with the Ukrainian national team: Daria Dubnyuk, Yelyzaveta Mitina, Victoria Balaban, Khrystyna Filevych, Olena Boiko, Miriam Uro-Nile, Tetiana Yurkevychus, Veronika Liubinets, Yevhenia Putra, Olha Maznichenko, Vladyslava Voloshyna.
