England will be looking to book their place in the semi-finals of Euro 2020 by beating Ukraine on Saturday.
The Three Lions are one of the favourites to win the tournament having beaten Germany 2-0 at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday. Gareth Southgate’s players produced their best performance of the tournament so far against the Germans. However, Southgate and his players will be aware that there’s still a lot of work to do. The Three Lions managed to reach the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and they’ll be looking to at least match that performance at the Euros. That being said, they’ll have their eyes on lifting the trophy this summer, especially with the semi-finals and final taking place at Wembley Stadium.
Who do England play next at Euro 2020?
England’s reward for beating Germany is a meeting with Ukraine. Ukraine qualified for the quarter-finals in dramatic style by scoring an injury time winner at the end of extra-time to beat Sweden. In this case, it remains to be seen just how much that effort has taken out of them. However, they’ve shown throughout the tournament that they have a lot of grit and determination, and certainly won’t be easy opponents for England.
