Ukraine will face England at Tarczyński Arena Wrocław in the qualifying round of the UEFA Euro qualifiers on Saturday.
Ukraine come into this match after losing 1-0 to Malta in their last game. The win for Ukraine was secured by a penalty in the second half by Girona striker Viktor Tsyhankov.
England, on the other hand, beat North Macedonia 7-0 in their last match. A brace from Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane, a hat-trick from Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka and goals from Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford and Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips secured the win for England.
Ukraine have named a strong squad, with the likes of Arsenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko and Everton left-back Vitalii Mykolenko named. However, the focus will be on Chelsea winger Mykhailo Mudryk. The 22-year-old joined the English club for €70 million in a high-profile move this January, and he has not yet got going for Chelsea.
There has been criticism regarding the forward’s decision-making, but Mudryk remains a key cog for Ukraine.
England, on the other hand, have an embarrassment of riches. They have, arguably, two of the best midfielders in the world in Arsenal’s Declan Rice and Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham. Bellingham, in particular, is already a fan favorite among the Real Madrid faithful.
Harry Kane has enjoyed a sharp start to his Bayern Munich career, while the likes of Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden will provide able support in attack. There have been a couple of interesting call-ups in defense, with Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi and AC Milan’s Fikayo Tomori both named.
It will be interesting to see how long Gareth Southgate continues to rely on the likes of Harry Maguire, Jordan Henderson and Kalvin Phillips. Maguire and Phillips are struggling for game time at their respective clubs, while Henderson has moved to Saudi Arabia.
