Andriy Shevchenko's first European Championship will be his last shot for glory with Ukraine's national team.

Still as popular as ever with the home fans, the 35-year-old striker is among the first to acknowledge that his best days are behind him. So when facing Sweden, France and England in a tough Group D, it's not about him but all about the team.

Shevchenko, who will decide after Euro 2012 on retiring from club football as well, says "I don't know how many minutes I come into the game. That doesn't matter for me. I want to be ready to help the team."
