Issue 5, September 2008.
The Ukrainian national football team left Lviv in early September having played and won two international in the city in the space of three weeks. However, while new coach Oleksiy Myhailichenko will be pleased with consecutive 1-0 wins over Poland and Belarus, he will have been alarmed to note how long it took before Ukraine were able to sneak a goal in the World Cup Qualifier against Belarus. It took a 90th minute Andriy Shevchenko penalty to see off their north-western neighbours, but despite the struggling performance, Ukraine were given tremendous backing by a patriotic Lviv crowd that helped brighten up what were two fairly sedate encounters.
