The Euro final will be held at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium on July 1 and Shevchenko reckons Oleh Blokhin’s side can get there. “If we show our quality and have a bit of luck we can reach the final,” the former AC Milan and Chelsea star said. “That will be extremely difficult but you only get one chance to make history.”
