Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is confident he won't flop in England like former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.

City face Sheva's Dynamo Kiev tonight in the Europa League.

Dzeko said: "He was always the favourite player for me. My idol. I met him a few years ago when Wolfsburg played Milan and we exchanged shirts.

"He had some tough times in England but that's football. England is very different from other leagues and I'll have to get used to it. Hopefully I'll have a lot of success there."
