Paul Stratton will probably not soon forget this evening. The die-hard Everton fan got a penalty shoot-out for his favorite club. The city official converted a penalty kick and was then celebrated by the players and fans. In the end, the “Toffees” celebrated a 3-0 win against Dynamo Kyiv. But the result was just a side issue.
With this gesture, Everton thanked them for the aid deliveries to Ukraine. Stratton was brought on by coach Frank Lampard on Friday night. However, the goalkeeper failed to react to the penalty kick.
Still, Stratton’s joy knew no bounds. He kissed the club crest. His teammates celebrated Paul Stratton. The game was themed “Play for Peace.” Shortly after the start of the Russian war, the Everton fan drove to the Polish border town of Przemysl. He was accompanied by former colleagues from the police and army. Equipped with a Polish dictionary, he helped the Ukrainian refugees for days. The club thanked him for his commitment.
