thumbnail Hello,

The Liverpool-owned striker says the Zhovto-Blakytni will try to play good football against the Three Lions.

Liverpool-owned forward Andriy Voronin, who is currently on loan at Hertha Berlin, insists Ukraine will not just sit back and play for a draw when they meet England next week.

The Three Lions, who top group six having won their first four fixtures, host the Zhovto-Blakytni in a World Cup qualifying match on April 1.

While the 29-year-old admits it will be a difficult task for the Eastern Europeans, he believes that there are ways to test Fabio Capello's side.

"I consider England to be the strongest team in our group but we also have very good players," Voronin is quoted as saying in The Daily Telegraph.

"We need not be afraid of the names on the back of the English team jerseys. The biggest mistake would be to play defensive football. We won't have any chances even for a draw should we make that mistake.

"The English do not like opponents who use short passing against them and make them run around without getting possession of the ball."

Former Chelsea striker Andrei Shevchenko appeared to be less confident, remarking, "I will be happy if we get a point on Wednesday."
