On June 25, FC Dynamo Kyiv had their first training day in Switzerland, while on June 26 Mircea Lucescu’s men played their first friendly. Our team faced the Swiss Challenge League side Yverdon-Sport FC. Just like previous ones, this match had charity status – “Play for Peace. Stop the War”.
The game ended in a draw – 1:1. Yatsyk scored for Dynamo early in the first half while Swiss team equalized after the break.
Home side started the game more actively. Although Kyivans were mostly in possession, Yverdon approached Neshcheret’s goal more often. Anyway they didn’t create real scoring chances while the White-Blues’ first attempt was a success. Yatsyk obtained the ball in the left side, rushed into the penalty area, eluded defenders and hit the far corner – 1:0.
