Contingent

For the European Football Championship 2012 , national coach Oleh Blochin announced a preliminary roster with 26 players on May 8 , from which one goalkeeper and two field players had to be deleted by May 29. [1] The naming of the goalkeepers was problematic, as regular goalkeepers Oleksandr Schowkowskyj and Andrij Dykan were injured, and Oleksandr Rybka tested positive for doping and was therefore suspended. The most experienced players in the squad were record national player Anatolij Tymoschtschuk and record goalscorer Andrij Shevchenko as wellOleh Husjew , Ruslan Rotan , Artem Milewskyj and Andrij Voronin , who were also used at the 2006 World Cup .

At the beginning of May 2012, the contract with national coach Oleh Blochin was extended until the end of the 2014 World Cup . [2] In September, however, he announced his resignation as national coach. [3]

On May 28, the following final roster was announced: [4]
