Oleksandr Shovkovskiy back in Ukraine national team

Oleksandr Shovkovskiy, 45, included in the Ukraine squad to face France on Wednesday after two of their goaltenders tested positive for Covid-19.

Ex-Dynamo Kyiv keeper Shovkovskiy retired in 2016.

Georgiy Bushchan was the only keeper on Andriy Shevchenko’s side with Andriy Lunin and Yuriy Pankiv self-isolating. 

A statement from the Ukraine FA, which brings BBC, said: “Oleksandr Shovkovskiy ended his professional career as a player in December 2016, but keeps himself in good physical shape, constantly conducting individual training.”

“The coaching staff of the national team of Ukraine emphasizes that it does not consider Oleksandr Shovkovskiy as a mandatory participant in today’s match.”

They added that “Oleksandr’s entry into the field can become possible” only if Bushchan tests positive or “gets injured during the match”.
