Ukraine produce major flag mix-up on their kits ahead of Euro 2024 opener

Ukraine produce major flag mix-up on their kits ahead of Euro 2024 opener

Ukraine is set to kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Romania.

Ukraine reportedly made a huge blunder on their kits ahead of their Euro 2024 opener against Romania.

Euro 2024 kicked off last Friday with host nation Germany thrashing Scotland 5-1 at the Allianz Arena.

Since then, the tournament has produced a series of entertaining matches.

England secured a narrow 1-0 win over Serbia on Sunday night after fellow Group C teams Denmark and Slovenia shared a 1-1 draw.

On Monday afternoon, it is the turn of Ukraine as they take on Romania in their first group stage match of the competition.

Ahead of the match, which will be played at the Allianz Arena in Munich, it has been claimed that Ukraine made a blunder on their kits.

According to Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu, Ukraine had the Belgian flag on their kits instead of the Romanian flag.

Rosu wrote on social media: “The Ukrainian FA put Belgium's flags on their NT's shits instead of Romania's before Today's match at Euro 2024.

“Hopefully, someone can buy some paint at the last minute to solve the issue.”

In the comments section, some fans pointed out that the camera could have made the colours darker than usual.

One person replied: “I think it's the camera. You can see how darker the blue on Ukraine's flag or logo is compared to what it should be, so Romania's dark blue looks even darker.”

Another tweeted: “It’s not black but you’re right the blue is too dark.”


A third fan added: “Maybe it s the camera's fault and that is really blue. It looks darker than what it is on the original logo. So Romania's blue is effected too and looks even darker than that.”

Ukraine will take on Belgium in their last Group E match on June 26, before that, they will face Slovakia on June 21.

The Ukraine squad boasts a number of Premier League players including the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mykhailo Mudryk and Vitaliy Mykolenko.
