The tournament favourites, who have four points from their two group-stage games so far, have no intention of tinkering with a successful formula ahead of the Ukraine clash
Spain Under-21 coach Luis Milla says that he has no intention of altering a winning team ahead of their final group game in the Uefa Under-21 Championships in Denmark, meaning Bojan will miss out again.
After a disappointing 1-1 draw against England in which they failed to secure the three points despite being the better side, they bounced back with a stellar display in their 2-0 win over the Czech Republic. The tournament favourites now need a victory to guarantee a spot in the semi-finals.
"We understand the importance of not changing the team," Milla told EFE. "We want to continue like this. It is a very important game, which gives us the possibility to achieve our goal of qualifying for the Olympics. We will not change a successful team."
Milla also took time to comment on the plight of Barcelona striker Bojan, who has struggled of late for both club and country, playing just 10 minutes of the tournament so far.
"He is aware that he has to improve, as we all do if we want to do something in this tournament,” said Milla.
One young striker who has impressed is Athletic Bilbao prospect Iker Muniain, whom Milla praised for his performance against the Czechs and stated: "Against the Czech Republic we met an organised defence, who gave us little space."
"We needed a player to give us some skill and I turned to Muniain. We have placed a lot of importance on what the team does without the ball. He was very disciplined."
