Ukraine football chief blasts Campbell for 'back in a box'
Hitting back: Ukrainian soccer chief Grygoriy Surkis hit back at racism jibes

'What impresses me is that a person who has never been to Ukraine can give such commentary about the country.

'Yes, it is true, as an independent country Ukraine is only 20 years old.

'But it has made a huge contribution on infrastructure and made everything possible to be a reliable partner to UEFA for this tournament.'

A group of England fans paraded a mock coffin prior to the final pool match in Ukraine to show what they thought of Campbell's comments.

With no arrests amongst their travelling support, it has been one of the most peaceful tournaments for years.
