Ukraine skipper Andriy Shevchenko has said that his team is still able to get to the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 if it defeats England.

"We knew that this would be a very difficult game. France played very well, especially in the second half. We still have a chance. If we beat England, then we will go on," he said in an interview with reporters in the mixed zone after the defeat 0-2 to France in Donetsk on Friday evening.
