The game between Ukraine and France won’t be remembered for the quality of the football, France played good and Ukraine played not so good. This game will be remembered for the huge thunder and lighting storms which caused the game to be abandoned for nearly and hour. The pitch was flooded and just about everyone in the stadium was wet through and through. The game was resumed, but as I said earlier the quality wasn’t that great, mainly because home nation Ukraine could not make a fist against the slick French passing moves. In the end the French managed a comfortable 2-0 win.
