Ireland’s unwinning Nations League run continues to be defeated by Ukraine

The Republic of Ireland lost to Ukraine 1-0 in a Nations League match in Dublin.

Viktor Tsyhankov blamed the Irish team for another match of the Nations League’s misery as Ukraine recovered from the pain of the World Cup and won.

Introduced as a half-time substitute, Dynamo Kyiv’s midfielder captured keeper Caoimhin Kelleher in a 48-minute free kick, winning 1-0 at Aviva Stadium and extending the republic’s non-winning match. Did. Competition for 12 games.

Despite making 10 changes to the team that played against Wales on Sunday, Oleksandrpetrakov’s men’s victory said a lot about their strength, but defender Shandafi denied. By late woodworking again emphasized the cutting edge and lack of creativity available to the opposite number of Stephen Kenny.

Even if he found time and space, keeper Andriy Lunin had little to pay attention to because of poor decision making. The hope that Kenny will win League B is after Scotland’s visit to Dublin on Saturday-the defeat by Armenia and Ukraine.

Petrakov had previously admitted that the emotional and physical consequences of the events in Cardiff and the ongoing Russian invasion back home had hit his players, but the homeside was strong. Since it started, even people with fresh feet opposed it.

Jason Knight, preferred by Troy Parrott on the left side of Front 3, hit Lunin with an early shot, and Chidsey Ogbene, after intercepting an attempted pass to keeper Olexandre Shirota as host high press. I saw the near post cross cut and paid an early dividend.

Lunin had to beat a 10-minute night strike from a distance to Ireland, which looks far more threatening than any stage in Yerevan on Saturday, while Mykhaylo Mudryk long-distance on Keleha’s crossbar. Whistled his efforts and warned of what was lying in the store.

Vitaliy Mykolenco made a wide range of speculative attempts as playmaker Mykola Shaparenko began to exert influence.

However, Ogbene was just as wasteful after escaping Shirota’s attention, shooting an ambitious 21-minute shot at defender Valerie Bonder, and Callum Robinson begging for a square ball in the middle.

As the tempo settled, Ukraine and Duffy had to put themselves on the drive path of Serhiy Sydorchuk, but Kelleher managed to cope with Oleksandr Zubkov’s similarly well-struck efforts.

Robinson wasted a 33-minute penalty after being challenged by Bonder for Jeff Hendrick’s skillful pass, but Ireland remained offside as Taras Kacharaba’s sweet strike was excluded. I escaped in half 8 minutes. Accumulation after VAR review.

Knight saw the snapshot blocked within seconds of the restart after Cyrus Christie and Ogbene joined on the right side, but Tsyhankov’s inswing free kick missed everyone in the center and Kelleher Ireland was late when he flew into his distant post in hopes of a touch.

With Shaparenko taking command and striker Artem Dovbyk extending his home defense, visitors dominated the Irish side, who lost inspiration again, but when Duffy hit the header against the crossbar, he was level with 11 minutes remaining. It was a pity that it didn’t become.

Substitute Michael Obafemi glanced, Josh Cullen smashed a long-distance attempt right next to the same upright, Lunin took root and showed an excited finish, all too few, It was too late. To the bar.
