Ukraine vs England Euro 2020 quarter-final – live Streaming Football

It’s all England in terms of possession; Ukraine are more than happy to line five up across the front of their own box. Mount dribbles into that penalty area from the right, and slips over, but claims a penalty anyway. He’s not getting one.

Follow live coverage as England take on Ukraine for a place in the Euro 2020 semi-finals tonight.

Gareth Southgate’s side won Group D after comfortable wins over Croatia and Czech Republic as well as the slightly more disappointing draw with Scotland. They then went on to beat Germany in famous fashion, earning a first knockout win over their old rivals in 55 years thanks to second-half goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane at Wembley Stadium.

Now they leave home soil for the first time in the tournament and travel to face Ukraine at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome in the quarter-finals. Andriy Shevchenko’s team were one of the lucky third-placed sides to qualify for the knockout phase after finishing behind the Netherlands and Austria in Group C, only to then beat Sweden in the last-16 in extra-time in Glasgow.

England have only ever reached one European Championship semi-final in their history – back in 1996. Follow all the latest updates from the Italian capital as they bid to do it again:

I have a very large excite about tonight’s game, I have lived in UK for five year as care assistant and I am supporting England. I think England team are very splendid fellows and I think they will win. I read Guardian website every day, when I first come to UK it helped me improve my English, and it has same political principles that I have, and that we all have in Estonia.” Aitäh, Tinto. Nothing to forgive!
