Player of the day: Captain Sheva
He has been banging goals all over Europe throughout a glamorous club career, but Ukraine’s living legend Andriy Shevchenko hasn’t scored a more important brace than the two against Sweden in Kiev.
The 35-year-old was overjoyed after guiding the co-hosts to victory with two brilliant headers, including the winner that saw him totally outsmart Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Goal of the day: Nasri vs. England
After some good passing by France, Samir Nasri rifled a bouncing effort that left his Manchester City teammate Joe Hart stranded.

Save of the day: Hart foils France
England keeper Hart showed excellent reflexes to deny a close-range header from Alou Diarra.
Miss of the day: Milner vs. France
Although the angle was slightly tight, England midfielder James Milner still missed an empty net after rounding France keeper Hugo Lloris.
Manager decision: Sheva start
Shevchenko hasn’t started any of Ukraine’s warm-up matches before the finals, but manager Oleh Blokhin will never regret his decision to hand the veteran a starting berth against Sweden.
