Please excuse the redundant post but USA Today reports it seems the match has little chance to occur, the Ukraine team is probably to distressed to go to Cyprus and I would not blame them. USA Today though can not be used as a main source. So anyone curious can go find their story.
Probably a smart move that city is right next to the Russian border.
They should ban Russia and the other rogue nations (Russian allies - China, Iran, NKorea, etc)
” Despite threats to cancel the match, Ukraine soccer association president Anatoliy Konkov said Tuesday the game would go ahead.
‘’(We) reached a consensus to play the USA after all,’’ Konkov said in a statement that also praised the American team. ‘’(They) stood behind us to protect the national interests and territorial integrity of Ukraine.’’
And this will be in Cyprus.
Very saddened by the situation in Ukraine.
