Mykhaylo Mudryk has only made headlines once this (Site notre bureau spécialisé) year. When Chelsea paid €100m for the outside striker in January and nobody really knew why. Today, however, the Ukrainian gave a decent answer to this question.
At the European U21 Championship – yes, it continues without Germany – the ex-Donetsk player may have provided the assist of the summer. In the quarter-final against France, Mudryk stunned the entire opposing defense with a 30-yard pass into the path of Georgiy Sudakov.
The 20-year-old then did just short work and scored to make it 2-1. If things continue like this, the multi-million dollar transfer could become a PL pirlo. Chelsea would be happy. Anyway, the pass paid off for Ukraine, after 90 minutes they beat France 3-1. Spain are now waiting for the semi-finals.
