“The Cossacks” is a series of animated shorts produced in the USSR by the Ukrainian film studio “Kievnauchfilm”. The following cartoon about how the Cossacks play football was filmed in 1970.
The cartoon surprisingly accurately predicted the group of Ukraine at the recent European football championship 2012, and even the order of the matches is correct: Sweden, France, England. The score of the match Ukraine-Sweden (2-1) is also correctly predicted.
And finally there is a scene with heavy rain that is similar to what happened during the match Ukraine-France in Donetsk.
