Andriy Shevchenko: Showed his worth with a brace for Ukraine against Sweden
Dynamo Kiev want Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko to stay on at the club, although they concede the decision will be his.
The 35-year-old former AC Milan and Chelsea forward's contract with Dynamo expired this month.
Despite his age, the veteran showed his prowess - and reinforced his standing as a national hero - with two goals in the co-hosts' opening Euro 2012 win over Sweden on Monday.
As regards keeping the striker, coach Yuri Semin said on the club website: "Everybody wants Andriy and we do as well.
"In this situation Andriy should make the decision himself. Everything is down to him."
His two goals in front of about 70,000 fans at Kiev's Olympic stadium gave Ukraine a 2-1 victory over the Swedes in their opening 2012 Group D match.
