England vs Ukraine: Prediction
Ukraine managed to make it into the quarter-finals of the Euros, but it has been quite a bumpy ride for them. Shevchenko's men have not managed to keep a single clean sheet in the whole tournament. Whereas, England is yet to concede a goal and they are in the quarter-finals.
We feel Ukraine will keep it tight at the back, but Gareth Southgate's England has enough firepower at their disposal to get past a stubborn Ukraine.
