LOOK HERE ! The moving viral video of Ukrainian Roman Yaremchuk

At Goodinson Park on Saturday February 26, the pre-match focus was on tributes, with the public reaction all the more poignant in the presence of Ukraine internationals Oleksandr Zinchenko and Vitaliy Mykolenko, with the contest itself taking a bit time to capture the imagination.

Meanwhile in Primeria Liga, Ukraine’s Roman Yaremchuk was moved to tears after receiving a standing ovation from Benfica fans during the game at Estadio da Luz on Sunday (February 27th).

“Ukrainian footballer Roman Yaremchuk replaces Benfica in Lisbon. Look what happens,” tweeted Piotr Zalewski, Turkey’s correspondent for

The Economist

The tweet went viral on social media as it was liked and retweeted multiple times with netizens going into an emotional frenzy.

Initially, the Ukrainian striker was not part of the playing XI, but came on in the 62nd minute and also received the captain’s armband. Benfica fans then applauded him in support of his country of origin.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine impacted world sport, particularly the beautiful game, with FIFA and UEFA first banning international football.
