Andriy Shevchenko felt the years fall away as he fired co-hosts Ukraine to a 2-1 victory over Sweden in Kiev.

The former Chelsea and AC Milan striker, 35, produced two high-quality goals in the second half after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had given Sweden a 53rd-minute lead. The result places Ukraine, making their debut in the tournament, at the top of Group D and gives them a great chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals.

"I feel that I'm 10 years younger today," said Shevchenko, who rejoined Dynamo Kiev in 2009. "I want to say thank you to everyone who has worked with me over the past six months."
