Ukraine has beaten Sweden 2-1 in a Euro 2012 group D match.

Two goals in six minutes from veteran striker Andriy Shevchenko boosted the Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine to the top of group D.

Sweden took the lead through Zlatan Ibrahimovic early in the second half but Andriy Shevchenko's two headed goals only minutes later secured the 2-1 victory and sent the home crowd into raptures.

In the group's other game, England held France to a one-all draw.
