In the European Championship match between Italy and Ukraine, the Italians secured a valuable point against the Ukrainians in Leverkusen. Despite not scoring any goals, both teams played intensely with numerous opportunities for both sides. A controversial moment occurred when Mihajlo Mudrik fell in the Italian penalty area after a duel with Bryan Cristante. The Ukrainians claimed it was a clear penalty and appealed for one, but the referee did not agree and did not consult the VAR room to review the incident.
The decision left the Ukrainian team feeling aggrieved as they missed out on qualifying for the Euros. Coach Serhij Rebrov expressed his frustration, questioning why the VAR was not consulted. However, despite their disappointment, there are still chances for Ukraine to qualify for the Euros as Germany will compete in the playoffs.
