Brothers Olivier and Vincent Thill flew in from Budapest, while Enes Mahmutovic escaped Ukraine via Poland.
The Ukrainian police, the Luxembourgish Embassy in Austria, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Jean Asselborn, as well as the Luxembourgish Football Federation (FLF) all cooperated to help get the three players out of war-torn Ukraine.
Vincent Thill was accompanied by his wife for the entire duration of the journey. A little while after the Thill brothers, Enes Mahmutovic also arrived safely at Findel airport. He was forced to make his escape via Poland.
While all three football players were lucky to get escape from the Russian invasion, around a dozen Luxembourgers remain stuck in Ukraine.
