Andriy Shevchenko’s men recorded a 3-0 away win against Lithuania at the LFF Stadium, Vilnius, on Saturday – an European Championship qualifier.
Ukraine dominated proceedings from start to finish and deservedly won the game 3-0.
Yarmolenko, who plays for English Premier League club, West Ham United expresses his happiness with fans’ support against Lithuania away from home and assures their fans that they will play with full force against Nigeria with their inspiring support in Dnipro.
”Before the match [vs Lithuania in Vilnius], when we were going to the stadium, we saw large number of our fans were on the streets. We were even more surprised when we went out to work out and saw how many were in the stands,” Yarmolenko stated in an interview published on the official website of the Ukrainian Football Federation.
“Thanks again to them. I am sure that we will play full force against Nigeria in Dnipro as we will be supported by the fans. All for them. In general, I missed Ukraine, the Ukrainian fans.”
