England have maximum points from their first two Euro 2024 qualifiers after Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka inspired them to a win over Ukraine.
Bukayo Saka was instrumental and Harry Kane was again on target as England strolled to a 2-0 win over Ukraine in Euro 2024 qualifying.
Kane became England’s all-time top scorer in a 2-1 win over Italy in Naples, breaking the deadlock in the 37th minute at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
The England captain converted a superb cross from Saka, who then put the visitors in the lead three minutes later.
A comeback was never in question after a long effort from the Arsenal star, with England firmly in control of Group C with six points from two games.
England were trying to break down Ukraine before Saka struck at the far post where Kane was waiting to fire into the bottom left corner with a glancing shot.
After firing the first, Saka created the second out of thin air, curling beautifully into the top right corner.
Ukraine improved in the second half but didn’t manage a corner until the 73rd minute, illustrating England’s comfort in seeing out victory.
England withdrew Kane late on to hand Ivan Toney his England debut and Gareth Southgate will certainly have several opportunities to introduce new faces if his side’s qualifying campaign continues in this leisurely fashion.
Toney’s fellow substitute Conor Gallagher forced a smart save from Anatolii Trubin before Harry Maguire headed wide and Jack Grealish went close, with the only frustration for England failing to add further gloss to the third.
