England vs Ukraine team news

England are expected to revert to a back four in Rome.

Southgate will check on the fitness of Bukayo Saka, who has a “slight knock”, which could open the door to Jadon Sancho to make his first start of the tournament.

Mason Mount is hoping for a recall after returning from isolation and Jack Grealish will be hoping his cameo against Germany will be enough to earn him a start.

Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane’s spots a guaranteed. Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice were again impressive against Germany but both picked up yellow cards, leaving them in danger of missing any semi-final with another booking. Jordan Henderson could come in.

England vs Ukraine prediction

England are yet to concede a goal and, one Thomas Muller chance aside which they inflicted upon themselves, have rarely looked like doing so after four games.

Ukraine toiled for a further 30 minutes on Tuesday night, and looked exhausted before that.

England have enough in them to hold their opponents’ at arm’s length and pick them off.
