It may surprise many considering some of the talent that Ukraine have had in recent years, most notably their strike partnership of Rebrov and Shevchenko, but Ukraine have never properly qualified for the European Championships as an independent nation, their only taste of the Euro finals came in 2012 when they qualified automatically as hosts.

On that occasion they showed that they aren't fully up to this standard as they failed to qualify from an average looking group despite home advantage and it would be a surprise if they were much better this time around.

Ukraine have not qualified for any of the recent European Championships through the standard qualifying groups but they did reach Euro 2012 as co hosts. Unfortunately they didn't perform too well, winning just one game and finishing third in their group. Ukraine are expected to continue to struggle at the finals when they get that far.
