Ukraine vs England: team news, head to head record and Probable starting xi
Artem Besedin got injured severely in the knee in the game against Sweden. Along with him, Denys Popov is not a part of the squad as well. Also, the presence of Andriy Yarmolenko and Oleksandr Zubkov is uncertain. Ukraine might have won the previous matches but their impression is not long-lasting. England’s last performance against Germany was great so Ukraine needs to show some extraordinary performance on the field to reach the semifinals.
Ukraine’s possible starting lineup:
Georgi Bushchan, Illia Zabarnyi, Serhii Kryvtsov, Mykola Matvienko, Oleksandr Karavaev, Mykola Shaparenko, Taras Stepanenko, Serhiy Sydorchuk, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Artem Dovbyk, Roman Yaremchuk
England is a very strong and skillful team in the tournament. They are a bit out of form but they will surely overcome everything and give their best to reach the semifinals tomorrow. The good news for the team is that not a single player is suspended from the next match. Their last match against the 2014 World Cup winner was great and won the match to reach the quarter-finals.
England’s possible starting lineup:
Jordan Pickford, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Kalvin Phillips, Jordan Henderson, Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Jack Grealish
