Chelsea and Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko is backing Scotland to quality for Euro2008 after Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Hampden Park.

Shevchenko said: "Scotland are a good team and this is a big success for the country and their national side because this is a great result.

"They are first in the table and have a great chance of qualification from a very tough group.

"Everything is still in Scotland's hands. They still have two very important games but they are good enough to qualify.

"They have a chance, a big chance, as this was a great result for them to beat us."
