Blokhin unsatisfied with performance

BERLIN, June 23 (Reuters) - Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin was less than satisfied with the 1-0 win over Tunisia on Friday, even though it earned his World Cup debutants a place in the last 16.

He said the dismissal of Tunisia forward Ziad Jaziri on the stroke of halftime seemed to work against his side, rather than for them.

'After the sending-off it was like a bad joke for the Ukrainians,' Blokhin told reporters.

'Ukraine suddenly stopped playing football...there were disciplinary issues on the field which is inexcusable for a great team.'

Striker Andriy Shevchenko, who scored the penalty that won the game, agreed.

'There was a lot of pressure and that is why the team was unable to play more varied football,' he said.
