Modern football as we know it owes a lot to Euro 2012 co-host Ukraine.

Take today’s Barcelona. While it’s true a lot of Barca’s game has its origins in the Netherlands and can be traced back from Johan Cruyff and Rinus Michels to the Ajax of the early 1970s, many of the style-defining concepts they were using -- such as aggressive zonal-marking and pressing -- were first pioneered by Viktor Maslov in the mid to late 1960s at Dynamo Kyiv.

In the December 2010 edition of the UEFA.com Magazine, Ukrainian FA Chief Grigoriy Surkis said of Poland’s and Ukraine’s jointly hosted 2012 Championships, “We share the same ideas and are looking forward to the fun of the tournament.”

Less than two weeks before the opening game of UEFA Euro 2012 kicks off, Surkis must be regretting those very words due to actions which have occured beyond his control, which have led to more than several of Europe’s nations threatening to boycott Euro 2012.

Those actions centre around current Ukrainian Premier Victor Yanukovych and his incarceration of his arch political rival and former Premier Yulia Tymoshenko in a show trial for political gain over ‘Abuse of Office’. Tymoshenko was ultimately sentenced to seven years in jail.
