Later they called the movie a joke.
On July 7, the Russian national football team lost to Croatia on penalties in the 1/4 finals match of the 2018 World Cup. After the game, the author of one of the balls Domagoi Vida and member of the Croatian coaching staff Ognjen Vukojevic recorded a video in which they shouted “Glory to Ukraine” and “This victory for Ukraine.”
Both players played for several years for the Dynamo Kyiv, while Vukojević still works there as a scout. On the question of the journalist Sports.ru, why the athletes shouted this out, Vida replied: “No politics. This is a joke. I love Russian people. “
