Ukraine 2-1 Sweden – Highlights

A vintage goalscoring display from Andriy Shevchenko gave Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine a 2-1 victory against Sweden at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev.

The 35-year-old converted two headers in seven second-half minutes to overturn Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s opener for Sweden and send the Ukrainian capital into rapture in the country’s first European Championship match.

Shevchenko nearly failed to make Oleg Blokhin’s tournament squad, but earned a starting berth and repaid his coach’s faith with a finishing masterclass to take his international record to 48 goals from 109 games.

Ukraine go top of Group D after the opening round of matches, following England’s draw against France earlier on Monday.
