Shevchenko hands Ukraine dream start at Euro 2012
KIEV.  June 12. KAZINFORM Veteran striker Andriy Shevchenko scored twice to give Euro 2012 co-host Ukraine a dramatic 2-1 comeback win over Sweden in their first-ever appearance in the championships, according to RIA Novosti.

The former Chelsea and AC Milan striker, 35, hit the mark with two headers in seven second-half minutes, canceling out Zlatan Ibrahimovic's short-range opener.

Sweden missed two golden chances late on to level it 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 on Friday, when Sweden and England clash in Kiev
