Oleksandr Zinchenko’s Ukraine lost to Wales in World Cup final play-off.
The Ukraine World Cup squad has produced a match-winning performance against Scotland in the semi-final but struggled to overcome Wales in the finals.
Welsh ended their 64-year wait for a World Cup appearance and will show their glimpses in Qatar later this year.
Zinchenko explained how his side has done everything in their powers to win the game.
“Every one of us gave everything today, we left everything on the pitch,” the Man City defender said. “In general I don’t think we deserved to lose, but that’s football, it happens.
“Football is about emotions, we can bring some great emotions to our fans, but unfortunately today we didn’t get the result we wanted.”
“Everyone needs to continue to fight, as footballers we need to represent our country as best we can,” he continued.
“Everyone needs to live in peace and we need to stop the war altogether. Today it’s Ukraine, but who knows tomorrow? We need to stay together.”
