Cheferin talks to Zelenskyy

The head of European football, Aleksander Čeferin, alarmed the Bosnian media with his conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. In particular, the official wished our national team good luck in the head-to-head matches for the European Championship, where it will play a Balkan team.

All the leading media in Bosnia and Herzegovina published almost the same headline for this news - "Čeferin wishes Ukraine success in the Euro 2024 playoffs". The website una.ba was more categorical and called the conversation between the president of the European Football Union (UEFA) and Zelenskyi bad news for the "dragons," as the Bosnian national team is called.

Almost all media outlets agreed that the Slovenian tried to make amends to the Ukrainians with his call after he had categorically stated that our rivals would not qualify for the Euros on the eve of the Blue and Yellows' match with Italy. "Italy must qualify for Euro 2024. Otherwise, it will be a disaster," Čeferin said at the time.

As a result, the match between Serhii Riebrov and Luciano Spalletti turned into a scandal: in the last minutes of the match, the referee did not award a clean penalty kick to the Italians. If the Ukrainians had realized it, they would have gotten a direct ticket to the continental championship, and the Azzurri would have gone to the playoffs.
