Ukraine vs England LIVE: Euro 2024 qualifying latest updates as Kyle Walker equalises after Zinchenko goal

Kane’s German advantage as England face Ukraine in European Championship qualifiers

England face Ukraine in Poland this evening as qualifying for Euro 2024 continues with a clash between the top two teams in Group C at the Tarczynski Arena.

Gareth Southgate’s side already have four wins from four games and are top of Group C, and a victory here over second-placed Ukraine would all but guarantee qualification for next summer’s tournament in Germany. This is England’s only competitive game of the September international break, with a friendly against Scotland next week.

Ukraine has to play the game in the Polish city of Wroclaw as the war continues at home following the Russian invasion of the country. They are fighting with European champions Italy for the second automatic qualification spot in the group. Ukraine go into the game with six points from three games, while Italy – who face North Macedonia tonight – have three points from two games so far.

Half time: Ukraine – England 1:1

After a struggling start that threatened to result in a poor end to the first half, England will be happy to be able to level the score at half-time.

A well-taken Ukraine goal was canceled out by a masterful touch from Harry Kane and a composed touch and finish from Walker, but England will be aiming for a far better performance in the second period.

45 minutes: Only one minute of added time at the end of the first half. Saka sends a cross to Kane, but the captain can only head it back over the goal and no one waits.

Goal! Ukraine 1-1 England (Walker, 40)

40 minutes: It looks like another laborious move by England, with Kane keeping the ball near the center circle. However, when he looks up, he sees Kyle Walker running behind him and catches him with a nice lofted pass.

The right-back receives the ball well, waits for the ball to bounce, pushes it past the goalkeeper and after a quick VAR check, the goal stands.

Ukraine 1-0 England

Ukraine 1-0 England

27 minutes: The goal seems to have woken up England a bit. Kane almost had a shot opportunity from inside the box before Bellingham and Henderson combined and the former Liverpool captain sent a shot over the bar from outside the box.

Goal! Ukraine 1-0 England (Zinchenko, 25)

26 minutes: And Ukraine is ahead! The move began in their own half when Konoplia passed Tsygankov and the full-back cut back to Oleksandr Zinchenko. The Arsenal player makes no mistake and it’s a big moment for Ukraine.

Ukraine 0-0 England

24th minute: Ukraine are striking well now, stringing together a few passes on the edge of the English penalty area before there is a wasteful pass, but they quickly regain possession of the ball.
