Shevchenko aiming for Euro 2020 as coach

AFP, Kharkiv

Andriy Shevchenko enjoyed an illustrious career as Ukraine's greatest striker. Now as coach of the national team, he is on the brink of guiding the side to Euro 2020.

The former Dynamo Kiev and AC Milan star, nicknamed “Sheva”, was appointed Ukraine coach in July 2016, his first managerial role. On his watch, the team fell short of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup after a home loss to Croatia in the final round of games knocked them out of contention.

But ahead of next year's European Championship, Ukraine need just a point from their remaining two matches to reach the final stages of the tournament. “I want to see this project through... to get to the Euros and perform well there,” Shevchenko told AFP ahead of Monday's clash at home to defending champions Portugal.

Ukraine are unbeaten in qualifying with 16 points after six matches, the most recent a 2-0 win over Lithuania on Friday, and hold a surprise five-point lead in Group B.
