Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Euro 2024 qualifier between Ukraine and England. If you’re looking for jeopardy, you’ve come to the wrong place. Tonight’s match is being played in Poland, which used to be where England qualified for major tournaments by the skin of their teeth: Peter Shilton touching a last-minute heatseeker onto the crossbar in 1989, Gary Lineker scoring a spectacular late equaliser two years later.
They qualify without breaking sweat these days, and barring an astonishing collapse they’ll be in Germany next summer. The most interesting thing about these games is the evolution of the team rather than the need for three points. Some players, like James Maddison, Marcus Rashford and Trent Alexander-Arnold when he’s fit, are trying to play their way into Gareth Southgate’s best XI for next summer; others, like Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson, are trying to stay in it.
It’s a bigger game for Ukraine, who are scrapping with Italy and North Macedonia for the other automatic qualification place. A result tonight would set them up for an even more important match on Tuesday: Italy away.
Kick off 5pm BST/6pm Wroclaw/7pm Kyiv
