Food poisoning sweeps through Ukraine's football squad

4:21 pm on 9 June 2012

The Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine expect all of their players struck down by a mystery stomach bug to be fit in time for their first game of the tournament.

Ten of Ukraine's squad members were laid low with food poisoning, and one had to be given an intravenous drip.

They were in Germany at the time, playing their last warm-up match against Turkey.
