SOCHI, Russia -- Ukraine will compete in the Winter Paralympics in Sochi despite Russias military moves in Crimea. The Ukrainian Paralympic Committee decided against boycotting the games, announcing a few hours before Fridays opening ceremony that its athletes would stay. The decision came after discussions between Ukrainian officials and athletes over whether to pull out in light of the crisis back home and Russias military takeover of the Crimean peninsula. "We are staying at the Paralympics," Valeriy Sushkevich, president of the National Paralympic Committee of Ukraine, said at a news conference. However, he added that the circumstances were far from ideal. "I dont remember a situation when the organizing country during a Paralympics started an intervention on the territory of a country taking part," Sushkevich said, according to the R-Sport agency. "I dont know what to extent the team can focus on the result now." The Ukrainian official said the team would leave Sochi if there is any escalation of military conflict. "I declare should this happen we will leave the games," Sushkevich said. "We cannot possibly stay here in this case." He said he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday night to discuss the situation and request peace during the games. Suskevich said he did not receive any guarantees but it was important that Putin agreed to listen. Putin and IOC President Thomas Bach are expected to attend Fridays opening ceremony. Several countries have decided not to send political leaders or dignitaries to the ceremony in protest of Russias actions in Ukraine. Ukraines decision to compete in Sochi was welcomed by the International Paralympic Committee. "We want sport to prevail and a full complement of teams to compete in what we are confident will be a fantastic Paralympic Winter Games," IPC President Phillip Craven said. "All week the IPC has been working closely with the Ukrainian Paralympic Committee in an effort to keep them here in Sochi. The talking point of Sochi 2014 needs to be great sport and great athletes, not global politics." The IPC has appealed for Russia to recognize the U.N.s Olympic Truce, which asks warring parties to cease hostilities during the Olympics and Paralympics. About 575 athletes from 45 countries are due to compete in the 10-day Paralympics. Five sports are on the program -- alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, biathlon, sledge hockey and wheelchair curling. Ukraine has entered 23 athletes for the Sochi Paralympics. It finished fifth in the medals table at the Winter Paralympics in Vancouver in 2010, with a total of 19 medals and five gold. Ukrainian athletes chanted "peace to Ukraine" as they apparently walked out of a flag-raising ceremony in Sochi on Thursday night. That is now under investigation by the IPC as a possible breach of rules banning political protests. "What were trying to do is gather the evidence, gather the transcripts and then we will see if any steps are necessary," IPC spokesman Craig Spence said. "If there was a political protest, obviously wed be disappointed by that because we have said all week that this is about sport, not politics." Tony Perez Jersey .

With the England manager needing to cut three from his group ahead of the finals, this was an opportunity for players to state their case for inclusion. Kane, Vardy star Match report of Englands 2-1 win over Turkey So who seized their chance? Who will hope for another opportunity to impress? And how will the performance affect Hodgsons tactical thoughts ahead of this summers showpiece? We take a look… Kane and Alli combination is essential Harry Kane scored his fifth England goal after being set up by Dele Alli Dele Alli set up seven of Harry Kanes Premier League goals for Tottenham this season - the joint-most productive combination between any pair of players in the division. And it took the duo just two minutes to click against Turkey, with Alli slipping a pass through the legs of his marker for Kane to slot in the opener - albeit from an offside position. Roy Hodgson felt there were lots of positives to be taken from Englands victory over Turkey but there were still things to work on Of course, both Alli and Kane have strong cases for inclusion in Roy Hodgsons starting line-up in their own right. Kane was the top scorer in the Premier League and has delivered repeatedly in the early days of his England career. Alli, too, has shone on international duty and picked up the PFA Young Player of the Year prize for his efforts with Tottenham this term. Allis assists for Kane Dele Alli has assisted Harry Kane eight times this season; more than any other player. But together they form an incisive partnership - and Hodgson must find a way to make the most of their mutual understanding. That could mean playing Alli in a more advanced midfield role, so he is closer to Kane, or by handing the pacey 20-year-old license to burst forward from a deeper position. Either way, Kane and Alli together provide a potent threat for this England side.Vardys best position is through the middle Jamie Vardy scored in his third international in a row This was just the second time Kane and Jamie Vardy had started in the same match for England and just seconds after the first whistle they almost combined to open the scoring. Kane, stepping in from the right with the ball, slipped a pass through the Turkey defence which was fractionally too heavy for Vardys run.However, Vardy spent much of the next 55 minutes wide on the left, holding his position as part of Englands attacking trio at the top of a 4-3-3. After firing Leicester City to the Premier League title with 24 goals as a central striker this season, it seemed like a waste. Rather than causing problems for Turkeys centre-backs, Vardy was restricted to showing off his less-than-impressive crossing ability. Neither of his two attempted crosses went close to finding an England player. Jamie Vardy has made a big difference to England. He worries the life out of teams. Peter Taylor A second-half tactical switch to a 4-4-2 diamond allowed Vardy to return to his central role and the Foxes forward relished the opportunity. He won a penalty - lashed wide off the post by Kane - after winning a race for a ball over the top with Mehmet Topal and twice threatened on the break late on by linking up with Kane.Vardy also kept his scoring run with England going, netting his third in three games from close range after Turkey keeper Volkan Babacan spilled Gary Cahills header. Former England caretaker boss Peter Taylor says he is an important figure tactically for Hodgson.Vardy has made a big difference to England because he always looks [to run] beyond [the opposition defence] and because he looks beyond it worries the life out of teams, Taylor told Sky Sports News HQ. They drop off and all of a sudden weve got a long pitch. If Roy plays the diamond shape you then have more bodies in that area and more space to work in to.Defensive concerns must be addressed Turkey created a number of openings against Englands defence Despite victory, there were a number of worrying moments for England as Turkey pressed for a late leveller - and, throughout, there were defensive issues Hodgson will no doubt be keen to examine.England are now three games without a clean sheet for the first time since a run of four in August 2013 and Hakan Calhanoglus opener - Turkeys first-ever goal against England - came after a catalogue of errors which saw the hosts fail to clear their lines, pick up opponents, cut out dangerous passes and hold position. England v Turkey shooting stats England Turkey Shots 15 14 Shots on target 4 4 Shots off target 10 6 Blocked shots 1 4 Hit woodwork 1 0 Turkey striker Cenk Tosun was almost a beneficiary of more slack defending at the start of the second half when he had a free header from a corner before John Stones allowed him to turn and shoot on the edge of the box.ddddddddddddAnd only a superb save from Hart in injury time prevented substitute Olcay Sahan from volleying in, after England repeatedly failed to clear the ball.Both Danny Rose and Kyle Walker impressed in the full-back positions but England as a team cannot afford to present opportunities as lightly at Euro 2016.Wilshere needs 90 minutes Jack Wilshere played for 65 minutes against Turkey Jack Wilsheres inclusion in this England squad - despite only featuring in Arsenals final three games of the season - demonstrates Hodgsons faith in the midfielder and the managers desire to give him every chance possible of making the trip to France. Now it is down to Wilshere to prove he is match fit and ready to deliver for his country.The 24-year-old insisted he was 100 per cent fit after the game but was, nonetheless, withdrawn after 65 minutes. During his time on the field, Wilshere recorded a pass completion rate of 90.9 per cent, came up with a couple of key passes and one interception - as well as a yellow card for breaking down a Turkey counter-attack. You want that type of different midfield player like Jack Wilshere for your options, whether you start him or bring him on as sub. Peter Taylor All in all it was a steady if unspectacular appearance. Peter Taylor insists Wilshere remains an important option for Hodgson, though, and expects him to be included when the squad is cut to 23 on May 31. Wilshere is so different, such a clever player, he could play for Barcelona, Taylor told Sky Sports News HQ.Hes such a talented player. You want that type of different midfield player for your options, whether you start him or bring him on as sub. He did well. Id be wrapping him up in cotton wool.Sterling still struggles with his final ball Will Raheem Sterling (right) make Roy Hodgsons final Euro 2016 squad? No outfield player made more appearances in Englands Euro 2016 qualifying campaign than Raheem Sterling but, after a tough first season at Manchester City since his big-money move from Liverpool, the winger would have hoped to have made more of a mark against Turkey.There were glimpses of his strongest attributes - early on he linked up well with Alli between the lines of the visitors defence and midfield, while in the second half he skipped past a couple of challenges with a burst of pace. But Sterlings struggles with his end product were also on show. Sterling vs Turkey Sterling vs Turkey Shots 1 Total passes 16 Completed passes 10 Attempted dribbles 9 Successful dribbles 6 Attempted crosses 3 Successful crosses 1 Touches 34 The winger recorded just two assists and six goals at Premier League top-scorers City this season and two wasted, off-target crosses against Turkey were moments of frustration. Another inaccurate pass from the left flank to the edge of the penalty box sparked a threatening Turkey counter-attack.After being withdrawn on 73 minutes, Sterling will hope to get another opportunity against Australia on Friday night to remind the England supporters - and, more importantly, Hodgson and his coaching staff - of the talent he has.
