Iceland, with a population of under 400,000, aimed to return to the competition’s finals after reaching the quarter-finals in 2016. However, Ukraine, quarter-finalists in Euro 2020, leveled the score nine minutes into the second half with a brilliantly executed goal by Viktor Tsygankov from Spanish club Girona.

“Thank you, guys! Thank you, team! For the intense emotions for the entire country. For the crucial victory and securing a place in EURO. For reaffirming once again: whenever Ukrainians face adversity but refuse to surrender and continue to fight, Ukrainians emerge victorious,” expressed Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky.

Having narrowly missed direct qualification to Italy in their group and subsequently being pushed into the play-offs, Ukraine can now anticipate the European Championship, commencing in Germany on June 14. They will compete in Group E alongside Belgium, Slovakia, and Romania, harboring ambitions of advancing to the knockout stage.
