The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

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.
