England vs Ukraine team news

For England, Jack Grealish was once again instrumental and will be hoping his cameo against Germany will be enough to earn him a start.

Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane’s spots a guaranteed, so will it mean another change of shape to boost the attack? Gareth Southgate reverted to a back three, to success, at Wembley but could be tempted to switch back to a four to accommodate another forward.

Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice were again impressive but both picked up yellow cards, leaving them in danger of missing any semi-final with another booking. Jordan Henderson could come in.

Ukraine striker Artem Besedin has been ruled out of the remainder of the Euros with suspected cruciate ligament damage in his left knee suffered during a wild red-card challenge from Sweden defender Marcus Danielson at Hampden Park on Tuesday.

England vs Ukraine prediction

England are yet to concede a goal and, one Thomas Muller chance aside which they inflicted upon themselves, have rarely looked like doing so after four games.

Ukraine toiled for a further 30 minutes on Tuesday night, and looked exhausted before that.

England have enough in them to hold their opponents’ at arm’s length and pick them off.
