Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko’s chances of playing against England on Tuesday are only 50-50.
The Dynamo Kiev striker, who netted twice in the 2-1 opening-round win over Sweden, is struggling with a knee injury and could be forced to sit out the crucial Euro 2012 Group D clash with in Donetsk.
“There is less liquid in the joint, but he still isn’t in the best condition to play,” Ukraine team doctor Leonid Mironov told Reuters.
“He will train under the supervision of doctors, but the final decision will be Shevchenko’s.
“He will decide whether he will play. But at the moment his chances look 50-50.”
After losing to France last time out, Ukraine tackle Roy Hodgson’s men needing to win to guarantee a place in the quarter-finals.
