Robert Lewandowski announces big gesture at World Cup 2022 because of the Ukraine war

Robert Lewandowski wants to use the big stage of the World Cup in Qatar with the Polish national team to express his solidarity with Ukraine. The captain will wear a blue and yellow armband at the World Cup.

As the Barca striker shared on social media, he received it from striker legend Andriy Shevchenko during a meeting at the National Stadium in Warsaw. The 45-year-old, national coach of his home country between 2016 and 2021 and most recently for Genoa, scored 48 goals in 111 international matches for Ukraine.

“Thank you Andriy. It was a pleasure to meet you! It will be my honor to wear this captain’s armband in the national colors of Ukraine at the World Cup,” Levandovsky wrote alongside Image showing the two (former) goal scorers handshake.

Lewandowski had repeatedly expressed his support for the attacked neighboring country in the past. “We can’t accept what’s happening there and we have to support Ukraine,” Lewandowski said at the end of February after wearing a Ukraine armband at a Bayern Munich game. A month later, the Polish national team announced that it did not want to play the playoff game against Russia for World Cup participation.
