Ukraine won the men’s Cerebral Palsy World Cup for the sixth time in history
Ukraine won the men’s Cerebral Palsy World Cup by beating Iran 1-0 in Sunday’s final in Spain.
The Ukrainian Federation had to ask for donations before the tournament because their funding had been redirected to help the war effort following Russia’s invasion.
They were pre-tournament favorites and champions from 2017.
Ukraine is one of the most titled teams in tournament history. Ukrainians have become six-time world champions among Paralympians— only the Russian team has succeeded more often — seven times. The Dutch team has won five World Cups.
