Shevchenko hands Ukraine dream start at Euro 2012
Kiev, June 12 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Veteran striker Andriy Shevchenko scored twice to give Euro 2012 co-host Ukraine a dramatic 2-1 comeback win over Sweden in their first appearance in the championship.
The 35-year-old former Chelsea and AC Milan striker hit the mark with two headers in the second half, cancelling out Zlatan Ibrahimovic's short-range opener for Sweden.
Sweden missed two golden chances to level the score through substitute Christian Wilhelmsson and defender Olof Mellberg.
Ukraine go top in Group D after England and France played out a 1-1 draw in Donetsk.
The Ukrainians face an even tougher test in the shape of France Friday, when Sweden and England clash in Kiev.
