Trubin made his European Championship debut yesterday by starting in the match against Slovakia.

The Ukrainian goalkeeper “stole” the position from Real Madrid’s Lunin, who was not in top form in the first round, and delivered a performance that earned praise from various corners of Europe. His composure and shot-stopping ability were on full display, solidifying his reputation as a rising star in goalkeeping.

In England, for instance, “Four Four Two” suggests him as a good candidate for Manchester City’s goal, noting that his current club might not be able to retain him for long given his quality, which could attract interest from several Premier League clubs as well as other European teams. The magazine highlighted Trubin’s agility, command of the penalty area, and his ability to make crucial saves, qualities that make him a valuable asset for any top-tier team.

Before signing with his current club, Inter Milan was a strong contender for his signature. The Italian club had been monitoring Trubin’s progress closely and were keen to bring him to Serie A. In the end, the Ukrainian goalkeeper chose his current team, a decision that reflects his ambition and desire to develop further in a competitive environment. He remains confident in his decision, confirmed this yesterday when, after the game, he was asked about the past Italian interest: “I think that question is not appropriate now, it concerns a past issue. I am now focused on my current team and I am happy here.” His commitment to his current club is clear, and he seems fully focused on his role there.

Publicly, his agent has already stated that one of his goals is to play in the Premier League, but his immediate future lies with his current team. This is because the club invested significantly in the goalkeeper and secured him with a substantial release clause, anticipating European interest. The significant investment in Trubin shows their belief in his potential and their intention to make the most of his talents while he is with the club.

For now, Trubin is likely to have secured the starting goalkeeper position for Ukraine, something he deserved for some time, according to the national coach. “I am pleased that we have healthy competition between our goalkeepers. Trubin deserved to play after his performance against Germany [a preparatory match that ended 0-0]. He was calm and could have started earlier.” This endorsement from the national coach further validates Trubin’s skills and readiness to take on bigger challenges.

Trubin’s debut at Euro 2024 is just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting career. His performance against Slovakia not only secured his place as Ukraine’s number one but also put him on the radar of top European clubs. As the tournament progresses, all eyes will be on Trubin to see if he can maintain his high standards and possibly lead his team to glory. His journey is being closely watched by scouts and fans alike, who are eager to see where his talent will take him next.

His current club will benefit significantly from Trubin's presence between the posts. His performances can help the team in their domestic league and in European competitions, providing a solid foundation at the back. His development at the club will be crucial, and the coaching staff will likely work intensively to refine his skills and help him reach his full potential.

In summary, Anatoliy Trubin’s impressive debut at the European Championship has set the stage for what could be a remarkable career. With interest from top clubs and a secure position at his current team, Trubin is poised to become one of the standout goalkeepers of his generation. His journey will be one to watch, as he continues to grow and make his mark on the international stage.
