UKR vs ENG: In the final quarterfinals game of the European Championship 2020, Ukraine are set to go head to head with England. Both sides will meet at Stadio Olimpico to decide their fortunes in Euro 2020. After thrashing Germany in the “Round of 16”, England are sensing an opportunity to win the title in 2021.
Ukraine are fresh off a famous injury-time winner against Sweden in the Round of 16. When the game seemed to go into the penalties, a miracle happened and Ukraine scored in the injury time of the extra time. They will look to put up a resilient show against England at Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
England have a robust defense and are yet to concede a goal in the tournament. They might have scored a few goals but have conceded none. Gareth Southgate will look to field the strong line-up to seal the deal early against Ukraine.

The Three Lions have played seven games against Ukraine and have always had an upper hand over their opposition. In seven matches, Ukraine has won just one game against England. Ukraine also have a poor record in terms of scoring goals. They have scored just three goals in seven meetings against England.
Both sides have met once in the past in a major tournament. England locked their horns with Ukraine in Euro 2012 and successfully edged their opposition out by a solitary goal margin. Wayne Rooney’s strike was enough to brush Ukraine aside in 2012.
