UKRAINE vs ENGLAND Match Preview & Analysis

Following that huge 2-0 win over Germany in the Round of 16, England are now regarded as one of the favourites to win the tournament, and certainly to reach the final after their route has opened up for them.

They now face Ukraine for a place in the Semi Finals, where they could face either Denmark or the Czech Republic who are, without disrespect, beatable teams for this England side.

With their strength in depth going forward, and the fact that they haven’t conceded a goal so far this tournament, it means that this is one difficult side to play against right now.

Ukraine needed a 121st minute winner against Sweden in their Round of 16 match, in a tense affair which required an extra 30 minutes to separate the two teams.

They will enter this game as underdogs, but that may well suit a nation who have gone under the radar until now.

World Ranking: 24

Best Historical Finish at the Euros: Group Stage

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Win over Sweden was their first knockout victory in their history

     England are playing away from home for the first time in this tournament

Reasons to be fearful:

     Artem Besedin will miss the rest of the tournament through injury

     Have only beaten England once from seven meetings

Ukraine have secured a Quarter Final spot at a major tournament for the first time in their history, having seen off a spirited Sweden side in their Round of 16 clash.

They faced an extra 30 minutes of added time after the two teams couldn’t be separated, but then scored in the final minute of the 120 to avoid a tense penalty shootout.

One positive for Ukraine is that this game will be played on neutral territory, with England travelling from their Wembley home for the first time this tournament. 

They will enjoy their status as underdogs here and will do their best to make things difficult for this English side. 

Star Man – Andriy Yarmolenko

Provided the assist for the first Ukraine goal against Sweden, and has the quality to cause England some problems with his wand of a left foot.

World Ranking: 4

Best Historical Finish at the Euros: Semi Finals, 1996

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Still haven’t conceded yet in this tournament

     Route to the final looks relatively straightforward 

Reasons to be fearful:

     Travelling away from London may bring on nerves

     Several players on yellow cards

England have finally beaten Germany in the knockout stage, for the first time since the World Cup final in 1966.

Raheem Sterling, England’s player of the tournament so far, and Harry Kane secured the two goals that sent England through, and it was a solid performance from the team as a whole.

Gareth Southgate will likely make changes once again here, reverting to four at the back and bringing back the likes of Mount and Foden. He will also need to be wary of players picking up a suspension, with Maguire, Phillips and Rice all one booking away from doing so.

With all the big names on the other side of the draw, can England finally go all the way to the final?

Star Man – Raheem Sterling 

Yet another goal for Sterling at this tournament, and his overall play has been outstanding. Defences find it impossible to cope with his electric movement.

UKRAINE vs ENGLAND Winning Prediction

     England should see more of the ball

     Can Ukraine finally break England down?

     Neutral crowd may bring tense atmosphere

This will be a new experience for England’s players, with very few of the fans allowed inside the stadium supporting them due to travel restrictions.

Ukraine have already travelled the length and breadth of Europe and will be used to neutral crowds, which could give them the early advantage. 

England are expected to come through this test, however, and set up their first Euro Semi Final since 1996.
