Bohdan Butko

Ukraine’s success in winning the 2009 UEFA Under-21 European Championships fuelled the belief that they could find some talented youngsters to lift their hopes of success at Euro 2012 and Butko is one of the heroes of that triumphant junior side.

He has spent the last few months playing his club football with FC Illichivets Mariupol in the Ukrainian league after being loaned out by his parent club Shakhtar Donetsk and the regular first team football has boosted his hopes of making an impact in Oleh Blokhin’s senior Ukraine side this summer.

At the age of 21, Butko is still learning his trade at the highest level of the game, yet coach Blokhin is known to be a big admirer of his talents and he would be not be afraid to throw him into the Euro 2012 mix this summer. He has played in some of Ukraine’s warm-up games to cement his spot in the squad.
