Euro 2012: Ukraine vs Sweden Preview

The Ukrainian side have recovered from a sudden wave of food poisoning that took ill a large number of players. The Swedes are optimistic as they head into the match with four victories in a row under their belt.

Here are the probable line ups:


Pyatov - Husyev, Khacheridi, Mykhalik, Selin - Timoschchuk, Nazarenko, Konoplyanka - Yarmolenko - Devic, Voronin


Isaksson - Lustig, Melberg, Granqvist, Olsson - Elm, Svensson, Kallstrom, Larsson - Toivonen - Ibrahimovic

Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin is relieved that his players that were taken ill with food poisoning, before their friendly loss to Turkey, have made a full recovery just in time for their first game at the final tournament. Veteran star striker Andriy Shevchenko could be on the bench though as he has still has some fitness problems.

Sweden are quite relaxed to that respect as they have a clean bill of health before the match. Star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will probably team up with Ola Toivonen in attack, as the PSV Eindhoven man scored and impressed against Serbia in their final friendly before Euro 2012.

Here are the match odds from William Hill:

Ukraine to win - 6/4

Draw - 2/1

Sweden to win - 2/1
