Andriy Shevchenko stated that anything is possible and the strength of the English is not a threat. However, he mentioned that it is unbelievably hard to score against the English team.
Ukraine has a major disadvantage with Artem Besyedin ruled out against England. The 25-year-old forward was ruled out due to a clash in their last battle. Besyedin is suffering from an injured knee after his dangerous challenge against Marcus Danielson.
