Referees of the match between Ukraine and Germany made an unexpected act for the Ukrainians
The referees of the friendly match between Germany and Ukraine gave up their fees for the game in order to help our country, which continues to resist Russian aggression. The Greek referees decided to join the charitable initiative of the Deutscher Fußball-Bund (DFB) and the Ukrainian Football Association (UFA).
The Kicker newspaper writes about it. According to his data, 43-year-old FIFA referee Anastassios Sidiropoulos, his assistants Reinhart Buxbaum and Chasan Koula, the fourth referee Ioannis Papadopoulos and video assistants Aristotelis Diamantopoulos and Spyridon Zampalas donated 4,000 euros to help Ukrainians.
In addition, it is known that fans could join the support of Ukraine, buying on a special platform unique T-shirts, in which the German players came to the game with the "blue-yellow". Also, all the profits that the DFB will receive from the match will go to projects and initiatives related to helping the Ukrainians.
Recall that the match between Germany and Ukraine ended in a fairy-tale draw 3-3, with the Ukrainians leading by two goals until the 83rd minute. Before the game our team's head coach Serhii Rebrov excluded the best player of Kyiv Dynamo - Vitaliy Buyalskiy. The encounter itself infuriated the Russian fans.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Sergei Rebrov positively assessed the game of the Ukrainian team in the match against Germany, despite the missed victory.
