Two days until the final, and co-host Ukraine is the only country I haven’t represented yet. At 35, Andriy Shevchenko was the oldest striker in the tournament, and a legend in his home country.

His contract with Dynamo Kyiv expires next month, and he has said he is considering retiring from playing altogether.
