Eugene was born on September 29 – the same day as Ukrainian team coach Andriy Shevchenko and his wife.
The footballer who just celebrated his 30th birthday talked about the coincidence of birthdays.
More surprising is that he was born on the same day as his wife. I was very surprised to find out. Although with Shevchenko – also.
My daughter and wife were the first to congratulate me. It was … touching.
On the eve of his birthday, Eugene marked the first goal for Shakhtar in official matches.
"You see how the team did well. It all depends on the team. And here is a warm, family atmosphere. We talked about the issue (who shoots a penalty, – ed.) – who wants, who feels. We solved that in 2 seconds, "Konopljanka said.
Although Eugene's birthday is not related to the goals. "I never wondered what and how many goals I scored on the eve of my birthday.
For me, this is not a fundamental thing; I don't remember the goals at all. But I remember well the big victories of my teams, ”notes the left-wing Shakhtar forward and the Ukrainian team.
