Due to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, the home side will face England in Wroclaw, Poland. But, fear not, the blue and yellow army will still be out in full force for this crucial Euro 2024 qualifier. Ukraine are currently battling it out with Italy for second place in Group C, and even a point against the table-toppers England would be a serious boost for their hopes of competing at next year’s European Championship tournament set to be held in Germany over the summer.

Meanwhile, England will all but confirm their qualification if they can emerge from this match with all three points. The Three Lions currently top Group C with four wins from four games, having scored 15 and conceded just once in the process. There’s no shortage of options for manager Gareth Southgate who can call on a wealth of inform Premier League talent including Bukayo Saka, Phil Foden and James Maddison, and let's not forget the Englishmen plying their trade across Europe including Bayern Munich’s Harry Kane and Real Madrid’s star boy, Jude Bellingham.

Here's how they line up: 

Ukraine: Bushchan, Konoplya, Matviienko, Mudryk, Mykolenko, Stepanenko, Sudakov, Tsygankov, Yaremchuk, Zabarnyi, Zinchenko.

England: Pickford, Walker, Guehi, Maguire, Chilwell, Henderson, Rice, Bellingham, Saka, Kane, Maddison.

This matchup sees second place meet first in Group C, but it’s hard to see Ukraine having much success against such a strong England team, who finished as runners-up at Euro 2020. However, every underdog has its day, so you’ll need to watch the Ukraine vs England live stream to see how this one plays out. Read on for all the details you need to watch online from anywhere and potentially for free.
