Ukraine 0-0 Italy: Euro 2024 qualifying – as it happened
Italy were the better team for most of the game: dynamic, aggressive and desperate to score, even though they knew a goalless draw was enough. But Ukraine came on strong in the last 20 minutes and had a very strong penalty appeal turned down in added time when Mykhailo Mudryk went flying after a challenge from Bryan Cristante.
VAR wasn’t interested, so Ukraine have to settle a place in the playoffs next March. Italy will defend their trophy in June and, hopefully for them, July.
