    Ukraine have been enduring quite a shaky period after completing 2019 without a single defeat across all competitions.

    The Main Team qualified for Euro 2020 by topping Group B where they bested defending European champions Portugal and eliminated Serbia, Luxembourg as well as Lithuania.

    However, since the start of 2020 Andriy Shevchenko's men have won a mere total of two out of 11 matches, which raises plenty of questions ahead of the summer's European championship.

    That led to bottom place in their Nations League A Group below Spain, Germany and Switzerland.

    Ukraine haven't tasted victory in any of their last six games, losing twice along the way to Joachim Low's men and Poland away

    Ukraine and Northern Ireland's first ever encounter took place way back in 1996 during a World Cup qualifier in Belfast which the visitors won 1-0 thanks to Sergiy Rebrov's winner.

    Since then, the two sides have faced off a total of five times with the Main Team winning two of the exchange compared to the Brits, who have only managed one victory so far.

    However, Ian Baraclough's men won their most recent meeting in Euro 2016 during a group stage match at the Groupama Stadium.

    Northern Ireland prevailed with a score of 2-0 thanks to Gareth McAuley and Niall McGinn's goals

    Welcome to our live coverage of the international friendly match between Ukraine and Northern Ireland at the Dnipro Arena ahead of the delayed Euro 2020 competition.

    Ian Baraclough's men failed to qualify for the summer's European championship last year in November when they lost their play-off final against Slovakia at Windsor Park.

    However, the Green and White Army are still looking to leave a mark tonight against Ukraine, who have advanced for the group stage where they will face Austria, the Netherlands and North Macedonia.

    Northern Ireland manager Baraclough will have Arsenal loanee Dan Ballard and Kyle Lafferty available; the duo missed Sunday's friendly at Malta as they had been involved with play-off games for Blackpool and Kilmarnock respectively.

    Chelsea's 19-year-old reserve Sam McClelland could be handed his first ever cap after Liverpool's 17-year-old ace Conor Bradley was given his first senior minutes against Malta.

    Ukraine manager Andriy Shevchenko is set for a major boost as West Ham ace Andriy Yarmolenko has returned after overcoming ligament damage.

    However, Shevchenko is going to be without Shakhtar Donetsk star Yevhen Konoplyanka, who has pulled out of the squad for tonight's friendly due to a torn muscle but there is still hope he will be back in time for Euro 2020
