Ukraine's national team has played twice in head-to-head matches for European Championships. In the qualifiers for Euro 2000, the Blue and Yellows suffered their most painful defeat in history - against the Slovenes. And then took revenge on them in the playoffs for the 2016 UEFA European Championship. At the same time, our team has not missed a continental championship since 2012.

The Blue and Yellows met Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. Then in Lviv, the teams drew 1-1, and in Zenica, the Ukrainians won 2-0 thanks to goals by Oleksandr Zinchenko and Artem Dovbyk.

It will be recalled that the Ukrainians made it to the playoffs of the 2024 UEFA European Championship qualifiers after failing to beat Italy in the decisive group stage match. At the same time, the referee did not award a penalty to the visitors for a foul on Mykhailo Mudryk.

Even the Azzurri's captain, Gianluigi Donnarumma, admitted that the defender had violated the rules. Social media reacted strongly to the episode, and the Italian media did not defend the referee. Russian journalists also agreed that Ukraine was condemned.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, UEFA banned Ukrainian fans from holding a rally to remind them of Russian aggression at the match with Italy.
