Ukraine's Gusev a doubt for Saudi Arabia match

Written by: Staff

POTSDAM, Germany, June 16 (Reuters) Ukraine midfielder Oleg Gusev injured his left knee in Wednesday's 4-0 defeat to Spain and could miss the team's second Group H match against Saudi Arabia on Monday, a team spokesman said today.

The 23-year-old, who plays on the right and is one of Ukraine's brightest prospects, was unable to train at the team's base in Potsdam on Friday and could be replaced in the starting lineup by Oleg Shelayev.

Coach Oleg Blokhin will be without experienced central defender Vladislav Vashchyuk, who is suspended after his sending-off against Spain. There are no other injury worries.

Today's training session at Potsdam's Luftschiffstadion was interrupted after about an hour by a huge thunderstorm which sent the players and staff scurrying back to the team bus.

Ukraine play Tunisia in their final Group H match on June 23 in Berlin.
