Ukraine take on Romania with LaLiga top scorer Dovbyk up front

MUNICH, Germany - Ukraine will take on Romania in their opening Group E clash without left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko, out with a foot injury, as manager Serhiy Rebrov picked a solid squad featuring La Liga's leading scorer Artem Dovbyk.

Rebrov -- taking charge at a major tournament for the first time -- can still rely on experience at the back with Arsenal's Oleksandr Zinchenko and Bournemouth centre-back Illia Zabarnyi named to the starting 11.

Wingers Mykhailo Mudryk and Viktor Tsygankov will start wide for Ukraine and provide an additional threat in attack, while 34-year old Andriy Yarmolenko begins the match on the bench.

Romania captain Nicolae Stanciu will pull the strings for the attack from midfield, while centre-back Radu Dragusin will anchor the back line as Romania readies for their first European Championship appearance since 2016.

Romania: Florin Nita, Andrei Ratiu, Radu Dragusin, Andrei Burca, Nicusor Bancu, Marius Marin, Razvan Marin, Dennis Man, Nicolae Stanciu (c), Florinel Coman, Denis Dragus.

Ukraine: Andriy Lunin, Illia Zabarnyi, Mykola Matviyenko, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Yukhym Konoplia, Mykola Shaparenko, Taras Stepanenko (c), Georgiy Sudakov, Mykhailo Mudryk, Viktor Tsygankov, Artem Dovbyk. REUTERS
