Fernandinho relinquishes the City captaincy to Ukrainian Zinchenko in the FA Cup

 Ukrainian Oleksandr Zinchenko, Manchester City player, wore the captain’s armband during the match against his counterpart Peterborough United, which is currently being held between them at the “London Road” stadium, in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Brazilian Fernandinho gave up the armband to give it to his colleague Zinchenko to wear during the match as a kind of support and solidarity with the Ukrainian player due to the events taking place in his country due to the Russian wars.

Goalkeeper: Ederson.

Defense: Cancelo – Zinchenko – Diaz – Aki.

Midfield: Gundogan – Fernandinho – Jack Grealish.

Attack: Phil Foden – Riyad Mahrez – Jesus.
