Ukraine captain Andriy Shevchenko has recovered sufficiently from a knee injury at the European Championship to start a squad training session on Monday.

Shevchenko, who has been a doubt for Ukraine's decisive Group D match against England on Tuesday, told reporters that his left knee is "getting better."

Only the first 15 minutes of the session were open to the media.

Shevchenko, who scored both goals in his team's opening 2-1 win over Sweden, had sat out Sunday's training session because of the injury. His knee had taken knocks in his previous two group matches, against the Swedes and France.

The 2004 European Footballer of the Year will end his international career after Euro 2012.

England winger Walcott ready for Tuesday

Theo Walcott has been declared fit to face Ukraine in England's last group-stage match at the European Championship.

The Arsenal winger was forced out of training on Sunday with a hamstring problem, two days after scoring in England's 3-2 victory over Sweden.

But coach Roy Hodgson says "he is fit for the game and luckily we don't have any injury concerns."

England only needs a draw against Ukraine in Donetsk on Tuesday to qualify for the quarterfinals.
