– Oleksandr Zinchenko popped the question to his TV presenter girlfriend Vlada Sedan on the pitch
– The 22-year-old was part of Ukraine’s team that qualified for Euro 2020
– Andriy Shevchenko’s side beat Portugal 2-1 to qualify as group winners
Oleksandr Zinchenko proposed to his TV host girlfriend Vlada Sedan on the pitch shortly after Ukraine qualified for Euro 2020 tournament.
The Eastern Europeans defeated Portugal 2-1 in Kiev in a night that saw Cristiano Roanldo score his 700th career goal.
But that did not stop the Manchester City defender from going down on his knees inside the 70,000 capacity stadium in Kiev to pop the question to his sweetheart in front of a heart-shaped display of roses.
The 22-year-old posted on his Instagram an incredible picture of the moment with the caption: “Most important YES of my life.”
Zinchenko was approached by his fiancee while the Ukrainians were celebrating their qualification into Europe’s biggest soccer event next summer before popping the all-important question.
The Man City star had earlier interrupted Vlada on live TV as he planted a kiss on the side of the cheek of his fiancee while he left her to celebrate with his teammates in the dressing room.
Rumours on the pair dating emerged back in June when Zinchenko pulled a similar stunt, kissing Vlada on her face on live TV just after Ukraine’s 5-0 win over Serbia.
