President of the Football Federation of Ukraine Grygoriy Surkis twice increased a bonus for the Ukrainian football team for the victory in game with football team of Sweden.

He said this in a comment to TSN.

He reminded that firstly, the federation promised EUR 500 thousands of sponsoring money to football players for the victory in the match of the group tournament. However, after a strong-willed victory of Ukrainians in the match with the Swedish football team the FFU changed its decision.

“As it was a  strong-willed victory, the fee will be not EUR 500 thousands but EUR 1 million”, - promised G. Surkis.
