Ukraine strike ace Andriy Shevchenko figures his team still has an even money shot to beat Italy in the World Cup quarterfinals, even with their true underdog status.
“Italy will be a tough nut to crack, but we are confident we can produce a surprise,” he told reporters.
“The Italians have won the tournament three times and they are a step up on anything we have faced to date, but I’d say we have an even chance,” said Shevchenko.
“That’s what we are telling ourselves.”
