Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin said Wednesday his veteran striker Andrei Shevchenko, whose brace saw off Sweden 2-1 in the co-hosts’ Euro 2012 opener on Monday, was unhurt after a minor traffic accident.

“It was a minor accident - not serious at all. He was not hurt,” Blokhin said. “He was accompanying his wife to the airport.” Shevchenko was present at training Wednesday at Kiev's Valeriy Lobanovsky stadium.

Blokhin further added that he saw no room for euphoria despite the first win.

“There is no reason for euphoria,” he said. “We just won a match. There is no reason not to keep our feet on the ground.”
