Scouted Football Podcast: 57

Dynamo, Shakhtar and Ukraine

This week, we’re in Eastern Europe, where Viktor Tsygankov has been involved in nigh-on 120 Dynamo Kyiv goals at the age of 23, and where a Portuguese-speaking contingent to rival Wolverhampton Wanderers has emerged at Shakhtar.

It is also the land of the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup champions, but what has become of the winners of that tournament two years on?

Joe is joined by Ukrainian football expert Andrew Todos – founder of Zorya Londonsk – to discuss the country’s big two and decorated young players.

Featuring segments on: Marcos Antônio and Tetê, Vitaliy Mykolenko, Denys Popov and Illya Zabarnyi, Manor Solomon, Shakhtar’s Brazilian contingent, and Ukraine’s overarching development issues.
