‘Everything was approved before (by UEFA)’
That was the reaction from the Ukraine FA on Thursday after UEFA asked them to remove a ‘political slogan’ from their Euro 2020 shirts.
UEFA – who had originally approved rthe shirts were reactiong to a protest by Russia
The shirt, containing a map showing Russian-annexed Crimea as part of Ukraine also included the phrase “Glory to the heroes”.
However, UEFA now say the combination of the map and wording inside the shirt clearly has “historic and militaristic significance”.
