Ukrainians completed the main task of the group round

If you struggle throughout the game, something wonderful can happen at the end. And we got this happy throw in the end.

I want to thank the people in Ukraine who watched the match. I know many guys who fight for our country and watch our fights. It is an honor. I hope the war ends as soon as possible.”
