Ukraine to start match with Schevchenko; Spain to leave Raul on the bench

Shevchenko teams up with Andriy Voronin to head the Ukrainian attack, with veteran striker Serhiy Rebrov as a substitute.

Schevchenko's fitness was in doubt until the last moment before game. The newly signed Chelsea striker has been recovering from a knee injury he picked up in May, the AP reports.

Spain coach Luis Aragones, hoping to extend a 22-game unbeaten streak, left Raul out of the lineup as expected, opting instead for a three-pronged attack with Fernando Torres, Luis Garcia and David Villa, who scored 25 goals for Valencia this season.
