Shevchenko does not start against England

Ukraine captain Andriy Shevchenko will be on the bench for Tuesday's decisive Group D match against England because of a left knee injury.
The injury forced him out of training Sunday, though he resumed training the next day. Marko Devic was chosen as a replacement by Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin, who made three further changes to his starting lineup.
He favored Artem Milevskiy instead of Andriy Voronin up front, and picked Yaroslav Rakitskiy and Denys Garmash instead of Taras Mikhalik and Serhiy Nazarenko.
Ukraine must beat England to advance to the quarterfinals.
