Is it Husev or Gusev? Oleh's surname begins with the Cyrillic letter Ghe (Γ).
Ghe is generally romanized using the Latin letter G; but when romanizing Belarusian, Ukrainian and Rusyn, the Latin letter H is used.


Tuesday, 1 May 2012 - Co-hosts Ukraine have been dealt a blow with the news that goalkeeper Olexandr Shovkovskiy is set to undergo shoulder surgery this week, a procedure which will rule the veteran out of this summer's tournament.  FC Dynamo Kyiv have revealed that the 37-year-old will travel to Munich tomorrow for an operation on the injury he sustained during the Bilo-Syni's 1-0 Ukrainian Premier League victory at FC Volyn Lutsk on 22 April.  Shovkovskiy's unavailability leaves Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin with a goalkeeping dilemma.  With Andriy Dykan continuing to recover from the head injury he sustained while playing for FC Spartak Moskva on 31 March, Blokhin is likely to turn to Andriy Pyatov, Maxym Koval and Oleksandr Goryainov.

Tuesday, 8 May 2012 - Oleh Blokhin has named a provisional 26-man squad for the co-hosts' pre-Euro 2012 training camp.  Blokhin has included two uncapped goalkeepers - Oleksandr Bandura and Maksym Koval.  First-choice keeper Oleksandr Rybka is serving a two-year suspension for a doping offence.  Top scorer Andriy Shevchenko has recovered from injury to join the pre-tournament trip to Turkey, but Dmytro Chygrynskiy has missed out.

Thursday, 24 May 2012 - Ukraine returned today from Turkey after their first training camp. Oleh Blokhin had allowed his players a relaxing schedule to give them the opportunity to recuperate after the club season and enjoy the company of teammates and family.  Though encouraged to take it easy, the players certainly did not heed that advice in the only friendly match they played at the camp, against Turkish Super League club Antalyaspor's reserve side. Ukraine won 16-1. The good news for the coach is that all players are fit, with only Ruslan Rotan not taking part in the warm-up match due to a minor ankle problem. With only a one night stop-over in Kyiv thisening the side is on the move again tomorrow as they head to Austria for their second preparation camp.

Tuesday, 29 May 2012 - The unlucky trio of goalkeeper Oleksandr Bandura, defender Vitaly Mandziuk and midfielder Taras Stepanenko flew home from Munich at lunchtime today after Oleh Blokhin decided to leave them out of his final 23-man squad, none of the unlucky trio played in yesterday's 4-0 win over Estonia. Andriy Yarmolenko had got Ukraine under way early in Kufstein before Oleh Gusev's penalty doubled the lead and Andriy Voronin added a further goal before the break. It was one-way traffic as Artem Milevskiy rounded off the scoring in the second half.

Friday, 1 June 2012 - Marko Arnautović scored twice as Austria produced a fluent display to defeat Ukraine in Innsbruck. Oleh Gusev had twice drawn Ukraine level, his first cancelling out Zlatko Junuzović's early opener.

Wednesday, 6 June 2012 - Ukraine expect all of their players struck down by a mystery stomach bug to be fit for Monday's opening game against Sweden. The illness, which swept through the squad yesterday, almost led to the cancellation of last night's 2-0 friendly defeat against Turkey, but team spokesman Oleksander Glyvinsky says: "They were out running this morning, so we would expect that they will all be fine for the opening game against Sweden."

Monday, 11 June 2012 - Ukraine start their Finals Tournament with a win over Sweden, with two goals from Andriy Shevchenko.

Friday, 15 June 2012 - Ukraine take on France with an unchanged side.  The match is suspended after four minutes for 58 minutes due to adverse weather conditions.  The players re-entered onto a soaking wet waterlogged pitch.  Ukraine went on to lose 2-0.

Sunday, 17 June 2012 - Andriy Shevchenko is a doubt to face England because of an injury to his left knee. The 35-year-old suffered blows to the area in the match against Sweden and against France. "We hope he can still take part but he is doubtful," said a team spokesperson.
