Olexandr Kucher

Playing in this season’s Champions League should have been ideal preparation for Kucher ahead of Euro 2012 and while the competition ultimately ended in heartache for his club Shakhtar, this talented performer confirmed once more that he could compete with the best at the top level.


He will be expected to rise to the challenge this summer, with this former Arsenal Kharkiv, Metalurh Donetsk and Metalist Kharkiv likely to be an important figure in the plans for coach Oleh Blokhin this summer.


Kucher became a YouTube villain back in 2009 as he dived in spectacular fashion to try and get an opponent set off in a game between Shakhtar and Dynamo Kiev. He dare not produce a repeat of that embarrassing episode when the eyes of the football world fall upon him at Euro 2012.
