Ukraine ready for 'very important' game

Published Add your comment

Andriy Voronin has admitted Ukraine's Euro 2012 clash with England on Tuesday night will be the biggest match in their history as fellow striker Andriy Shevchenko faces a battle to be fit.

Shevchenko, who scored Ukraine's two goals in the 2-1 win over Sweden, was absent from an open training session on Sunday in the Metalurg Stadium with a left knee problem.

Former Liverpool player Voronin said: "I don't know how badly Shevchenko is injured. He has two days to recover and we hope he can play. He is very important in every game for Ukraine. That is what he means to us. We don't know if he will play or not but everyone hopes he will play."
