But, perhaps more than three points, the most important for coach Oleh Blokhin and aspirations of the hosts is the moment the great veteran Andriy Shevchenko. The Dynamo Kiev striker was the architect of the comeback against the Scandinavians and probably in his last major tournament, showed that falls short of the European challenge, especially to be the symbol of one of the hosts.

It will be difficult to change the home side stand the face of this commitment, however, another of the key men in Ukraine, Andriy Voronin's experienced, it looked as destabilizing as expected. The alternative would Ruslan Rotan, although it is still an unknown physical condition experienced by the element of Dnipro who fielded only five minutes on the debut.

Adrenaline is the main driver in this selection that has several elements in the twilight of their careers.

The result in the first game was the sudden awakening of a country that seemed to address the Euro 2012 betting with a mixture of celebration and disappointment at the level skepticism about his "Zbirna" could occur. However, expectations can overwhelm the optimism, less care with a rival such as France.

The Gauls come to this meeting in a situation diametrically opposed to his opponent in turn. Their draw against England left a patched into question the French navy for the Euro is the motto of erasing blemishes inconveniently present in pride "Bleu".

Laurent Blanc, France coach knows that while England is a historic opportunity to start the tournament with a win was very viable and he announced that for the match against Ukraine will be changes.

The midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa is one of the variants that are profiled to start in this commitment. The Newcastle player has the main argument the constant additions to the front and a good work in recovery to help an overwhelmed Samir Nasri who did not supply support when attacks on both sides by Glen Johnson and Oxlade-Chamberlain .Gael Clichy would be another alternative if required even offensive projection from the rear, without forgetting that Blanc could, in an adverse scenario, the forward Mathieu Valbuena.

With a point, because France shares with England, but above Sweden in Group D. A victory would catapult to the qualification that seek to tie up some Scandinavians have to face to face against England in the second round on Friday.

Much at stake for this comparison that might shed even as the # mathematical Ukraine. Both teams will have full squad, good news that promises a great show.
