The 30-year-old striker took just nine minutes to make his mark on UEFA EURO 2012 after coming off the substitutes' bench. He cut in from the left-hand side of the penalty area and rifled an effort into the top left-hand corner to seal an impressive victory.

Andriy Shevchenko (Ukraine 2-1 Sweden)
55th minute
Ukraine were behind for only three minutes before their talisman showed that he has lost none of his predatory instinct. His movement was superb and the header emphatic. Cue delirium.

Jakub Błaszczykowski (Poland 1-1 Russia)

Danny Welbeck (Sweden 2-3 England)

Substitute Theo Walcott surged past a pair of Sweden defenders into the penalty area and centred low for Danny Welbeck, who got across the front of his man and guided the ball into the net with a sublime back-heel on the turn.
