The Chelsea frontman believes world champions Italy and Germany 2006 runners-up France are likely to overtake Scotland.

Seven points from their remaining three games would carry Scotland to the finals, but Shevchenko, who will lead Ukraine´s attack at Hampden, said: "I want to see the strongest teams go through. I think that Italy and France will take the first two places, but Scotland still have a very good chance."
