Fomenko unveils Ukraine Euro 2016 squad

Mikhail Fomenko has revealed a provisional Ukraine squad for Euro 2016, containing 26 players on the main list and another four reserves.

Zbirna made it to the tournament finals by defeating Slovenia in the play-offs and they were since drawn alongside Germany, Poland and Northern Ireland in Group C.

Some three weeks before the Euro 2016 is set to kick off, Ukraine head coach Mikhail Fomenko has announced his provisional squad.

There have been no major surprises as the boss decided to stick to tried and tested footballers, and he opted against recalling striker Yevhen Seleznyov, who has been heavily criticised for joining a Russian club.

Talented footballers Ivan Petryak, Maksym Malyshev and Viktor Kovalenko keep their places, whereas uncapped midfielder Yevhen Shakov is included as well.

Veteran midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk is in the squad and he is almost certain to survive the cut that will take place before 31 May.

Provisional Ukraine Euro 2016 squad: 

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

Defenders: Yaroslav Rakitskiy, Oleksandr Kucher, Vyacheslav Shevchuk (all Shakhtar Donetsk), Nikita Kamenjuka (Zorya Lugansk), Yevhen Khacheridi (Dynamo Kyiv), Artem Fedetskiy (Dnipro);

Forwards: Roman Zozulya (Dnipro), Philip Budkivskyy (Zorya Lugansk), Artem Kravets (Stuttgart).
