Ukraine international Oleksandr Zinchenko became the youngest goalscorer in an international game for Ukraine by netting in the 4-3 friendly against Romania on Sunday.

Oleh Gusev and Artem Kravets failed to win a place in the Ukraine squad for Euro 2016, but teenage star Oleksandr Zinchenko was included by coach Mykhaylo Fomenko.

Zinchenko, 19, on Sunday became the youngest goalscorer in an international game for Ukraine by netting in the 4-3 friendly win over Romania, beating the record of former AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko.

It was enough to convince Fomenko, but there was not such good news for defender Mykyta Kamenyuka and midfielders Yevhen Shakhov, Ivan Petryak and Maxym Malyshev, who were all cut from the provisional party.

Ukraine was drawn in Group C for the tournament in France alongside world champion Germany, Northern Ireland and Poland.
