Shevchenko feels fine, coach to decide if he plays

Written by: Staff

LEIPZIG, June 13 (Reuters) Ukraine's Andriy Shevchenko said he feels fit to play in the opening Group H game against Spain tomorrow but the coach has to decide if he starts.

''I am feeling quite well,'' the striker told reporters after training today. ''The coach will decide this evening whether I play. I'm ready for any decision he might make.'' The 29-year-old former European Footballer of the Year has been nursing a knee injury that has threatened to keep him out of the match between the two group favourites.

Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin later told reporters: ''We haven't discussed yet if he will play. I will discuss it with him''.

Shevchenko's fellow striker Serhiy Rebrov added: He is fine.

I think he will play tomorrow.'' REUTERS DH KP1803
