“It is very important for Ukrainian clubs to play these matches and I am very grateful and very happy that I have an opportunity to play for my club against…my native club. It is necessary to maintain the flow of information because the war is still going on…it is necessary to show people that the conflict has not ended, by far. To be honest, I am a little bit nervous [about the match]. I will meet my friends, my old team, and I never played against them. I want to say thank you so much to my club and our chairman for the support for my country. I have some nerves, but I am very happy to return to Goodison,” says Mykolenko. [EFC]
