Red Right 88

In Cleveland, hope dies last

Apparently, we underestimated the Ukraine

Much like Cosmo Kramer, we underestimated the strength of the Ukraine, which defeated Sweden on Monday behind two goals from 35-year-old Andriy Shevchenko.

Ukraine is ranked No. 52 in the world by FIFA and is only in the Euro 2012 tournament because they are a co-host. But obviously no one told the players that.

“We showed today our character, our good football,” Shevchenko told ESPN. “We have very good chances to qualify.”

The goals were the 47th and 48th of Shevchenko’s international career.

This is why they play the games, people.
