No surprises from Ukraine for Three Lions
Friday 24 August 2012
The Ukraine coach, Oleg Blokhin, has named a familiar-looking squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Group H rivals England at Wembley next month.
Ten players who started Ukraine's 1-0 defeat by England at Euro 2012 are included for the 11 September clash, with Andrei Shevchenko the only absentee following the 35-year-old striker's retirement from football. Dynamo Kiev and Shakhtar Donetsk are represented by six players each.
