Euro 2012: Shevchenko

The day after the night before. As the whole of Ukraine is chanting his name I decided to dedicate the day to finding out more about him.

Kiev University, Kiev

Walking the streets of Kiev I saw they had already erected statues and plaques in honour of his two goals last night.

Shevchenko... Everyone thought he was in a retirement home for the past few years after his Chelsea exit and his subsequent unsuccessful return to AC Milan. Not so it seems. He showed his class the other night. I reckon there's even more to come from him too. Probably unlikely to be the top scorer of the tournament all the same...
