WATCH: Real Madrid midfielder Camavinga delivers gift to Ukraine U21 players

Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga visited the Ukraine dressing room after Thursday's clash for France U21.

The two sides played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in a qualifying match for the U21 European Championship in Istanbul.

The game was originally meant to be played in Ukraine but had to be moved due to the ongoing Russian invasion.

Following the game, Real Madrid star Camavinga made his way into the Ukraine dressing room holding the shirts of all the French players.

"This is the shirts for all of you because I know, we know, that the situation is very complicated. This is a present for all of you," said Camavinga.

"The bad situation, I hope and all persons in Europe hope that the situation will be better."

The gesture was greeted by a round of applause from the Ukraine players.
