Former Russian national team coach Anatoly Byshovets has named the Ukrainian national team as the team he will support at the 2024 European Championships.

Byshovets said this in an interview with the Legalbet portal. The Seoul-88 Olympic champion at the head of the USSR national team, who has been living in Moscow since the mid-1980s, also recalled Russia's war against Ukraine. The former footballer noted that it causes him "grief and disappointment".

"Which team will I support? It is clear that Ukraine is in the tournament. Needless to say, this is very important for my family. The situation in general causes me nothing but grief and disappointment. Nevertheless, I must say that the current capabilities of the Ukrainian national football team are good, they exist. I watched their match against Germany. In addition, I have an attitude towards Rebrov, with whom I am familiar. Now many people are waiting for the quality of the game, although the task is to get a result," Byshovets said.
