Ukraine war is now a very big issue and a global problem. It has disrupted all the ongoing and scheduled matches in every sport. And people of Ukraine are suffering a lot from the war. Their lives, living, and everything are in danger.
The people of Ukraine can be dead at any moment by the invasion of the Russian military. It’s everyone’s duty now to do something for the Ukrainian people. We all should come together to help the victim. FIFA arranged a friendly football match between Poland and Scotland in the FIFA World Cup playoff matches in support of Ukraine.
Before Putin attacked Ukraine everything was set. Poland then set to face Russia in granted a bye to the final. But after Putin invades their neighbor country, FIFA banned Russia. So, Russia is can’t play in any international event until everything becomes alright again which takes time cause it’s doesn’t seem like Putin want to stop the war. So, the future of the Russian football team is in danger.
The day Poland would face Russia, on the same night Scotland had a match scheduled with Ukraine on the same night. But unfortunately, Ukraine is now unable to participate in many matches. Their country is now in a very critical situation. They are playing with guns instead of playing with a football. All their players take the guns to save their country. They are ready to sacrifice their lives for the country. So, in that position FIFA postponed Ukraine vs Scotland world cup playoff match.
And now FIFA arranged a friendly match between Poland and Scotland. Both countries also agreed on that match. They decided to raise funds from that match to help Ukraine.
The fundraising friendly is being backed by the two countries’ captains in Andy Robertson and Robert Lewandowski, with Robertson saying, “As a father, seeing the images of children in Ukraine has been very much heartbreaking to watch. I am proud to be the ambassador for UNICEF and when they informed us that the match against Ukraine would be postponed then working in partnership with Robert and the Polish squad to do our bit to help the situation was a no-brainer.”
“We send our love and prayers to all our fellow participants across Ukraine’s football community and hope that the money raised by the match will help the tremendous efforts already made by UNICEF in Ukraine and in helping the refugee situation.”
