The Italian Football Federation has decided on the arena where the Italian national team will meet the national team of Ukraine in the autumn as part of the qualification for the European Championship.
This is reported by the official website of UEFA.
The match between Italy and Ukraine will be played on September 12. The match will take place at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium in Milan. The start of the meeting is scheduled for 21:45 Kyiv time.
The Milan arena was built in 1925 and named "San Siro". In 1980, the stadium was renamed in honor of the legendary forward of "Inter" and the Italian national team, Giuseppe Meazzi. The building has undergone 4 reconstructions, and now it can accommodate almost 76,000 fans.
The national teams will play in the 6th round of selection for Euro-2024. Qualification started in March with two rounds. The Ukrainian team missed the first game day, and lost to the England national team in the second (0:2). In the summer, the "blue and yellow" will meet the Macedonians and the Maltese, and on September 9 they will play a home match against the English.
The history of confrontations between the national teams of Italy and Ukraine includes 8 matches. "Squadra Azurra" won 6 matches, and two more ended in draws. The "Blue and Yellow" twice lost to the Italians in qualifying for Euro-1996, lost in the quarter-finals of the World Cup-2006, and also suffered two defeats in qualifying for the European Championship-2008.
By the way, earlier Rebrov agreed with UAF on a contract to work with the Ukrainian national team.
