Blokhin shifts focus to England

Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin has attempted to shift the pressure onto opponents England in Group D of Euro 2012.

The two nations approach the match in Donetsk knowing a win would see either side through to the quarter-finals, but the 59-year-old Blokhin has insisted England will be feeling the pressure more than the tournaments co-hosts.

“There will be big problems for them, but it’s not the same for us,” Blokhin said.

“The England team will be more nervous. We have nothing to lose.

“We should consider England as leaders in the European Championship. They also have problems because if they lose tonight it will be unexpected.

“They are one of the favourites and are expected to play in the final. Nobody expects that we will fly to the moon.

“It would be fantastic (to win), but that’s another thing. The fans should expect good play, but we shouldn’t say to our nation ‘we’ll win the Euros’, and they shouldn’t shoot at us if we lose.”
