  • End of 2nd Half
90'

There it is. England are European Championship semi finalists. That is all. Thank you for joining us on Eurosport, join us on Tuesday for more Euros action!

87' 

It's sad to see the belief just blown away from a spirited Ukrainian side. They've been a joy to watch at this tournament, but ultimately England have just been too strong. The personnel and strength in depth is the primary reason.

84' 

It's still all England. No Grealish? No Foden? No problem.

82' 

Mykolenko wins the free kick off Sancho in the defensive third.

80' 

10 minutes to go until England are... major tournament semi finalists again??!!

79' 

Trippier does well to get across to Yarmolenko as he shapes to pull the trigger, and Ukraine get the corner.

78' 

Maguire clears a Yarmolenko cross well.

78' 

They aren't going away though, Ukraine, they're still trying to break England down, but they're not getting their key players into advanced enough spaces.

75' 

Shevchenko's men have been stunned here. They haven't even been that bad, but they've succumbed to superior quality.

More excellent composure from Mount as he weaves away from Shaparenko with ease.

67'

Corner, England. Point proved exactly by Rashford, whose direct run down the left flank wins the set play. Surely not? In towards Maguire... but wide.

66' 

More attacking changes now, even though Southgate is 'resting' players. Bellingham and Rashford are hungry to get in on the act here.

62'

A clipped ball from Shaw can't find Sterling... it's nodded back down... Kane with a half volley! Bushchan with an acrobatic save! What a hit, bettered only by the save!

60' 

An hour played. England winning 3-0. Could life be any better?

59' 

Beautiful penetrating pass through the lines from Maguire finds Mount, who takes the ball on the half turn, but he can't thread the disguised ball through for Kane, as Matvienko clears.

56' 

Mount has really grown into this game, as I said before! His movement has seen Syrdochuk pulled out of position all game.

54' 

The Three Lions are still composed in possession - they're not letting themselves become complacent, and they're picking off their Ukrainian opposition with ease at present.

53' 

England are performing at a major tourament quarter-final stage. It's beyond belief.

  • Harry Kane
    GoalHarry KaneEnglandGOAL!!!! Harry Kane at the double, England at the triple!

45'

There's half time. England a goal to the good and the better side here, plenty to digest. We'll be back in 15.

45' 

Three minutes added, as Sancho skips past three men with one manoeuvre. A £72 million man.

43' 

It's much more of a 4-3-3 for Ukraine now. Tsgankov is wide left, Yarmolenko down the right with Yaremchuk down the middle - Zinchenko is on the left of the midfield trio, with Syorchuk holding.

41' 

Shaw nods away, and the referee blows for a free kick after a foul on Declan Rice.

41' 

Another Ukranian break down the left after a Walker lapse in concentration... and they earn a corner after a Stones block.

40'

Shaw breaks through after a lovely ball from Sterling... he squares it for Sancho, lovely turn... Sancho! Good save, Bushchan.

37' 

Well worked down the Ukraine left, and Zinchenko tries to pull it back after a decent Yaremchuk drive, and Yarmolenko can't force it home either.

33'

Sterling does exceptionally to get around the outside of Kavamaev, pulling it back... it falls for Rice! Big save from Bushchan!

31' 

Again, its more England pressure. Luke Shaw is overlapping superbly, allowing Sterling to move inside and drag two men in with him. He then leaves the space for Shaw to advance down the flank and deliver a cross.

29'

It's in towards Maguire... Kane! And a mixture of the Harrys sends it over the top.

28' 

Sterling wins a free kick on the near side, wiith Shaw over the ball, ready to deliver a cross.

27' 

Sancho is offside after an excellent initial ball over the top from Kyle Walker.

26' 

Sterling weaves into the penalty area off the left and tries to get a shot away, but it's blocked well.

24' 

More patient play from England, looking for the half-spaces to penetrate. Mason Mount is yet to really grow into the game, but his movement off the ball has proved to be a thorn in the side of the Ukrainians, who have needed Shaparenko to watch the Chelsea man.

22' 

Lovely play from England from right to left, with Sancho starting the move, darting inside off the flank, finding Sterling, who slips in Shaw on the overlap... and his cross doesn't find anyone, with Walker too far back to pick up the scraps.

21' 

Free kick, England. Sterling fouled by Syorchuk.

19'

The ball is kicked out by Shaparenko as Matvienko is down and needs attending to.

18' 

Neat interplay between Zinchenko and Yarmolenko, resulting in a Zinchenko shot being cleared off the end of his foot by Kalvin Phillips.

17'

A pass from Maguire sells Walker short, and Walker's following pass back for Stones is stolen upon by Yaremchuk, who drives into the box... and Pickford saves! Corner, Ukraine.

16' 

Sterling can't keep a clipped John Stones pass in play, and Ukraine have a throw on halfway.

13' 

Excellent interception and driving run to follow from Walker, and he wins a throw deep in opposition territory with a blocked cross.

12' 

Here's a Ukraine break... Yarmolenko drifts wide right, takes it to the byline faced by Luke Shaw, but his skewed cross is easily cleared by Maguire.

10'  

More composed possession play from England. Rice and Phillips are staying collected in the middle of midfield; keeping the game's tempo ticking over as Ukraine are forced to come out of their defensive shell and press the Three Lions.

8' 

Free kick, Ukraine. Sterling fells Kavamaev, and Shaparenko is over the set piece, but England nervously are able to clear. Another wave of Ukrainian pressure arises.

6' 

England are up for this. They're in their opposition's faces, Shaw is pressuring Kavamaev high, and the Ukrainians are still to bed themselves into the game.

Southgate on why he's picked Sancho on the right flank:

19:20 

Premier League bias from Southgate?

19:18 

Oh no... can Gareth Southgate change this tonight?

19:12 

Well... Harry Kane will have to escape the attentions of three centre-halves, and it'll be Mykola Shaparenko's job as the holding midfielder for the Ukrainians to deny him space when he tries to get on the ball from deep. Jadon Sancho will look to attack Mykolenko on the outside with his stronger right foot, swinging in crosses early or from the byline for Harry Kane, or Sterling at the far post. Rice and Phillips will be combative against the flairy Zinchenko and the warrior Sydorchuk, and Rice, sitting more deeply, will also seek to pick up Yarmolenko dropping into the pockets to link play.

19:11 

What'll the key battles in this game be?

Ukraine are back in their 3-5-2 shape that they beat Sweden with in the previous round; Andriy Yarmolenko is up front alongside Roman Yaremchuk, with the West Ham winger looking to buzz around the target man and feed off knock downs to weave his magic in the half-spaces. Oleksandr Zinchenko moves into the engine room with Vitalii Mykolenko back at left wing-back, and Mykola Matvienko moves back into the central defensive trio having filled in at wing-back in the last round.

19:02 

England are back in their 4-2-3-1! No back five here. Raheem Sterling, the top scorer for the Three Lions remains on the left, and new Manchester United man Jadon Sancho makes his first start off the right. Harry Kane leads the line, supported by Mason Mount who returns at 10. Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips anchor the midfield as two sixes, and Luke Shaw deservedly retains his left-back berth, alongside Harry Maguire, John Stones and Kyle Walker.

19:02 

Let's dissect these lineups, shall we?

19:00 

And here is the Ukrainian team: Bushchan, Zabarnyi, Kryvstov, Matvienko, Karavaev, Sydorchuk, Shaparenko, Zinchenko, Mykolenko, Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk.
