  1. Everyone will focus on Pickford there but a bit crazy how easy it was for Ukraine to break there
  2. It's another big England game, welcome. HISTORY Ukraine are a relatively new FIFA nation, and they have only ever beaten England once, back in 2009 http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/internationals/8293515.stm MORE HISTORY 1996 - England 0-0 Spain (England win on penalties). Spain battered us really, had two perfectly good goals disallowed, a clear penalty not given. And yet. We someone got to penalties and we were good at penalties in 96 so on we went. 2004 - Portugal 2-2 England (Portugal win on penalties) Early goal from Owen. The turned into a classic Sven era performance where we had no control over the game and Portugal slowly took over. 2-1 down deep in extra time, and Lampard popped up with a rare big goal for England, and then we had an epic penalty shootout that we managed to **** up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlEUdZgH0gc 2012 - England 0-0 Italy (Italy win on penalties) I remember very little about this game tbh I remember we had very little in the way of chances, was very much a play for penalties effort at times from Roy. Deserved to go out. So there you go, an England Euros QF has never not gone to penalties. TEAM SELECTION No one really knows what Southgate is going to do, trying to predict feels foolhardy. In Gareth we trust. FORM GUIDE England have yet to concede a goal in this tournament. Ukraine are played 4, won 2, lost 2 so far. England are overwhelming favourites for this but... FEELING NERVOUS YET? Win this (and this is our one neutral game against the weakest team left in the competition. If Gareth had been granted a wish a month ago it would have been this scenario) and England are in the semi finals. At Wembley. With 60k fans. Against Denmark or Czech Republic. England have done the difficult bit, beaten one of the European elite in a big game, now the path to glory has opened up and it really doesn't get better than this.
  3. I'm surprised players are retiring when the world cup is only a year away.
