Thank you all for the atmosphere that surrounded the team during the tournament. I am very pleased when stands welcome you, perhaps, it is the greatest gift in the career.  I'll play one last match, this will be my final match, probably some kind of a friendly one. I think it's time to make room for new young players "Shevchenko said.
