- Ukraine national football team 1992
This season was the first season for the
Ukraine national football team. The Federation, particularly its president Bannykov had organized first game with Hungary on the small stadium near the border with the country of the opponents. The field on which the game was organized could have been counted as the neutral considering the fact that Uzhhorod has a big population of native Hungarians. The Federation hired Viktor Prokopenkoto prepare team for the World Cup of 1994. Mr. Bannykov tried to get a qualification spot for the national team. By the end of the year it was clear that there is no hope for that, which reflected upon the motivation of the players. After loosing another game to Hungary "Prokopenko" was fired and was replaced by a pair of the interim coaches Pavlov and Tkachenko. "Tkachenko" at that time successfully coached Metalist leading it to the finals of the Cup. By the end of the year half of the national team ran away to Russia, switching their citizenship in hope to be included in the team that would make to the finals in the United States.
