Ukraine vs England Lineups and Last Match

Ukraine

Ukraine made hard work of their last qualifier against Malta but did eventually win the game thanks to a second-half penalty from Tsygankov after Yarmolenko had failed to convert an earlier spot-kick. That win moved Ukraine above Italy in Group C but the Eastern Europeans have played one more qualifier to date. Sobol, Shaparenko, Malinovskyi, Konoplyanka, Kovalenko and Biesiedin have not been called up to the latest Ukraine squad for one reason or another.

Predicted Lineup – Trubin (GK), Kryvtsov, Matvienko, Konoplya, Zabarnyi, Stepanenko, Yarmolenko, Zinchenko, Sudakov, Tsygankov & Vanat

England

England demolished North Macedonia at Old Trafford in their last qualifying match. Saka claimed the match ball after netting a hat trick while Kane scored twice and both Rashford and Phillips also got on the scoresheet in a 7-0 victory. It's hard to see anyone but England winning this group and Saturday's game against Ukraine. However, Stones, Shaw, James, Alexander-Arnold, Mount, Grealish and Sterling are all missing from the England squad and it will be interesting to see if Maguire keeps his place in the starting eleven despite not playing for Man Utd this season.

Predicted Lineup – Pickford (GK), Walker, Maguire, Tomori, Chilwell, Bellingham, Henderson, Rice, Saka, Kane & Rashford

Starting Lineups

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: Bukayo Saka

We've picked Saka as our player to watch in this game as we believe the Arsenal star will pick up where he left off last time out for England.

The 22-year-old has scored 11-goals in 28 caps for his country, netting a hat trick against North Macedonia last time out. Saka has also started the new season in good form for his club side Arsenal, scoring 2-goals in their opening four matches.

Neither side have the home advantage in this game with the match being played in Poland rather than Ukraine for obvious reasons, and this should give England even more confidence in their ability to get a result this weekend.
