"I was not surprised that very many presidents of football associations, approaching me, said that they had very little information about Ukraine, about Ukrainian football. Some of them thought we had already had the war at all.

But most of them were very surprised that we have had a championship for two years, that we had the Cup of Ukraine, that our teams participate in all international tournaments. I think this is a very big victory. All of us. The whole football community. Because football has a very big influence in the world. It is a very powerful force. It's very important that we use this power correctly. For all this, first of all, we must thank the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

As for the hosts of the 2030 FIFA World Cup (now it is Portugal, Spain and Morocco - editor's note), there have been no changes. We are not in this joint bid. And we all understand why. There were no talks about Ukraine's return to the 2030 FIFA World Cup bid at the FIFA Congress," Shevchenko said.
