"We are doing everything to make sure the players remember all the interactions that were before. I want to thank the clubs once again for letting the players go and giving them an opportunity to start this training camp earlier. We worked well and I expect good football from the Ukrainian national team. In general, we are fine, only Shaparenko has a small muscle injury. We consulted with a doctor and let him go," Shevchenko said.
