Football News Update: Euro 2024, Champions League, and More

Ukraine’s national team put on a stirring display ahead of their Euro 2024 match against Slovakia, with players singing their anthem while draped in the Ukrainian flag. This emotional scene underscores the passion and resilience of the Ukrainian squad as they compete in the prestigious European tournament.

The Euro 2024 competition has seen the emergence of a new star for Ukraine in the form of 22-year-old goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin. After a poor showing from Andriy Lunin in the opening match against Romania, Trubin was given the opportunity to step up and has seized it with both hands.

Trubin’s career began with Azovstal-2 Mariupol in his native Ukraine before he joined the academy of Shakhtar Donetsk in 2014. His big break came during the 2020/21 season when he was named the club’s player of the season for his impressive performances in the UEFA Champions League against the likes of Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

The talented goalkeeper’s rise has continued, with reports suggesting he could be on the move to a top European club.

In August 2022, Trubin completed a move to Portuguese giants Benfica, where he has continued to impress, making a remarkable 48 appearances in his debut season. His performances at Euro 2024 have only further enhanced his reputation, and it’s no surprise that he is now valued at around £35 million, with some reports suggesting his release clause is close to £90 million.

With Manchester City’s current goalkeeping situation in focus, the Premier League champions could be a potential suitor for Trubin, following in the footsteps of Ederson, who also joined the club from Benfica. Trubin’s continued excellence at Euro 2024 is sure to attract attention from clubs across Europe, and it will be intriguing to see where his career path takes him next.
