Fomenko names Ukraine squad for play-off vs Slovenia

Fomenko names Ukraine squad for play-off vs SloveniaUkraine coach Mikhail Fomenko has unveiled the list of 26 players that will be in contention for the two Euro 2016 play-off matches vs Slovenia.

Zbirna are forced to search for the Euro 2016 berth through the play-offs having failed to pip Slovakia to the first place in their group.

But, with the quality at their disposal, it is hardly surprising Ukraine have been made 1.70 (7/10) favourites to win the first leg next Saturday.

Even though he has returned into action following a lengthy injury lay-off, Roman Zozulya (22/3) has been left out of the squad for the Slovenia game as he still lacks match fitness.

Ufa midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko (1/0) has been dropped, with Zorya Lugansk starlet Ivan Petryak (0/0) the only newcomer.

Star players Yevhen Konoplyanka, Andriy Yarmolenko and Artem Kravets all keep their places and no doubts the trio will give Slovenia defenders a run for their money.

Ukraine squad:

Goalkeepers: Andriy Pyatov (Shakhtar Donetsk), Denys Boyko (Dnipro), Nikita Shevchenko (Zorya);

Defenders: Artem Fedetskiy (Dnipro), Vyacheslav Shevchuk, Oleksandr Kucher, Yaroslav Rakitskiy (all Shakhtar Donetsk), Yevhen Khacheridi (Dinamo Kiev), Andriy Pilyavskii (Zorya);

Midfielders: Oleg Gusev, Andriy Yarmolenko, Sergei Sydorchuk, Denys Garmash, Sergei Rybalka (all Dinamo Kiev), Ruslan Rotan (Dnipro), Taras Stepanenko (Shakhtar Donetsk), Ruslan Malinowski, Alexander Karavaev, Nikita Kamenyuka, Ivan Petryak(all Zorya), Anatoliy Tymoshchuk (Kairat), Yevhen Konoplyanka (Sevilla);

Forwards: Yevhen Seleznyov (Dnipro), Philip Budkovskyy (Zorya), Artem Kravets (Dinamo Kiev), Olexandr Gladkiy (Shakhtar Donetsk).
