Shevchenko suffers injury to knee
Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko
Shevchenko is Ukraine's big hope for their first World Cup finals
Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko will be out of action for the rest of May - but should be fit for the World Cup.

The 29-year-old striker suffered minor knee ligament damage during AC Milan's Serie A game against Parma on Sunday.

"The player doesn't need surgery but will only be able to return to play in 25 days' time," said a statement on the official AC Milan website.

Ukraine will be playing in their first World Cup finals and they start with a Group H tie against Spain on 14 June.
