Ukraine’s incredible blunder before entering the fray against Romania

As Ukraine begins its Euro 2024 this Monday against Romania (3 p.m.) in Group E, the Federation has put the Belgian flag on Ukrainian jerseys.

A big blunder even before the start of the competition. A few hours before Ukraine’s first match in Euro 2024 against Romania (3 p.m.) at the Allianz Arena in Munich, the Ukrainian Federation made an incredible mistake. On the selection jerseys, the wrong flag was embroidered, since it is that of Belgium, and not that of the Romanians. The Belgians, also placed in group E, will be the last opponents of the Ukrainians, on Wednesday June 26 at 6 p.m. An error quickly repaired, since the correct flag was added to the blue jerseys worn by Zbirna this Monday.

A symbolic competition for the country

For its first Euro since the start of the war in February 2022, Ukraine is approaching this competition almost at home, since the selection has played a few matches there since the Russian invasion, just like Shakhtar Donetsk, which hosted its Champions League in Hamburg.

Proof that the selection is a bit like home, a piece of the grandstand from a Kharkiv stadium destroyed by bombing was exhibited in Munich, in the presence of Andriy Shevchenko, president of the Ukrainian federation. This temporary exhibition was inaugurated on a central square in the Bavarian capital, a twin city of kyiv since 1989, in front of a few hundred supporters of the Ukrainian selection.

Blue and yellow seats, the colors of Ukraine, shredded and carried by a piece of mesh from the Sonyachny stadium in Kharkiv, in the north-east of the country, were exposed at the foot of a statue of Maximilian I, Duke of Bavaria. This 5,000-seat stadium was destroyed and has been unusable since May 2022 with the bombing of Kharkiv.
