Ukraine vs England Key Players
Ukraine: Oleksandr Zinchenko had a huge influence against Sweden. He netted one goal and making one assist. The game against England will once again be a big test for him to deliver. Also, he will play against some familiar friends and foes from Premier League.
Apart from him, skipper Andriy Yarmolenko’s involvement in the final third will also be a key factor if they are to cause any upset. The West Ham United forward will look to pose a threat on the counter.
England: Raheem Sterling has been the goal-scoring hero for England so far in this tournament. He provided a serious attacking threat to what is a largely pragmatic side. He has scored three of England’s total four goals. Also, including the winners against Croatia and the Czech Republic.
He will once again hope to retain form and provide the attacking threat on the left flank to support a back in form Harry Kane.
