During the Nazi occupation of Ukraine, the football match between the Nazis and a group of Ukrainian players from the famous soccer club FC Dynamo Kyiv took place. The Ukrainians were clearly superior to the occupiers, because they beat them easily over several matches – the last result being at 8-0.

At least one of them died at their hands. Those who survived were shipped off to a work camp – and most were ultimately executed.
