Ukraine likely to advance from Group D

Ukraine have beaten a tough Swedish team with a score of 2-1 with clinical finishing of Andriy Shevchenko. The Ukrainian captain scored shortly after the Swedish captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored.

Shevchenko was clearly the man of the match and delighted the home crowd with 2 brilliant header strikes that left team Sweden stunned and are now 1 loss away from a quick exit at the Euro 2012. The 2 strikes also puts Shevchenko the top goalscorer in the tournament at 2 goals with games remaining against France and England in group D.

France and England tied 1:1 earlier in the day which means nothing is close to being settled yet. Ukraine were underdogs in this tournament and the odds for Ukraine to advance were not so great, Shevchenko was also a huge payout for the most goals scored in the tournament and also the UEFA player of the tournament. Right now his performance is the best in the tournament so far which is just getting started.
