Back at Euro 2012 nobody wanted us to be drawn in Ukraine because apparently its a nightmare to travel through

Booked the direct flights, Sunday to Thursday... Worry about where it is once I get that far anyway 😅
And once again, Monk's played it to Trojan, who's again switched to the left Bob.

I don't know about that, Bob. But he certainly can use both feet.

In the first Nations League they played both home games outside Kiev (Lviv and Kharkiv). The two games with attendences in the most recent nations league were both in Kiev.
their final home game of the wc qualifiers in october was in lviv, obviously with fans in attendance. i wouldn't read much into whether fans were at the game or not. chances are it'll be kiev but i wouldn't put my house on it.

Good cheap high speed rail connections according to my Ukranian friend.  He has no idea where it will be played either.

I booked the direct Ryanair flights as well so lots of time to travel if needs be.  Of course if in Lviv better to go in via Poland or fly there.  For any of the other venues you are probably going via Kyiv anyway.

Not from Kiev to Lviv, quite the opposite to be honest

There is a train that is just over 5 hours, not too bad considering the distance. Sleeper train is another option.

Yes he reckons 5 hours to Lviv and 4.5 to Kharkiv.  Obviously there are much better routes if it does end up in Lviv.

That must be new as it was always an overnight train when we looked at it over the years going to eurofan.

I know.  I booked straight away but probably safer to wait now assuming prices have shot up.  If it is in Lviv I have booked to soon and there are clearly better ways to get there.  Pretty much anywhere else though and via Kyiv is the way to go.  

The problem is we may not know the venue for a few months.  Of course the political situation is another concern.
