A soccer match in Ukraine lasts 4 and a half hours because of the rockets

-

The Ukrainian Football League match, which resumed with a full-back voice after Russia invaded the country on Wednesday, lasted 4 hours and 27 minutes instead of 90 minutes due to repeated sirens for fear of air strikes.

At the end of the first stage competitions, the match between Lviv Rukh and their visitor Metalist Kharkiv started at 15:00 local time in Lviv (12:00 GMT) and ended at 19:27, with the visiting team winning 2-1 after stoppage. time. 3 times by the sirens.

Both teams spent a total of 145 minutes in the shelter, with no air raids on the city.

The new season of the Ukrainian league resumed behind closed doors on Tuesday despite the Russian invasion in a bid to give the war-torn country a morale boost.

Four games were played without any of them being suspended due to air raid sirens.

Many clubs play their home games in stadiums outside the cities, especially in the safer western or central regions.

In April, Ukrainian clubs decided to end the previous season early, after it had been suspended following the Russian invasion that began on 24 February.

Ukraine celebrates its independence on Wednesday and the United States warned a day ago that Russia could attack Ukrainian government facilities in the coming days.
