----------END OF UPDATE---------

 

In their second Euro 2012 match, England overcame Sweden for the first time in the history of organized soccer between the nations.

Now the Three Lions are hoping to at least draw with Ukraine in order to advance out of Group D.

It will not be easy, as the Yellow-Blues have proven the ability to beat the English before, with a 1-0 win during 2010 World Cup qualifying.

Keep reading to see if Roy Hodgson’s squad has what it takes to get past this feisty Ukrainian side.

Player to Watch: Wayne Rooney, England

Andy Carroll and Danny Welbeck have both earned starting nods at the top of England’s attack in Rooney’s absence and have both scored a goal during those two matches.

Now one of them will have to ride the pine as the 26-year-old striker returns from suspension.

Will that be the smart strategy?

It remains to be seen, but it has been quite some time since the Manchester United star played a full 90 minutes. If Hodgson is reluctant to yank Rooney in the case of poor fitness, it could spell doom for the Three Lions.

 

Key Matchup: Andriy Shevchenko**, Ukraine vs. John Terry, England

**Shevchenko's status for this contest is in doubt due to a knee injury.


Shevchenko is a goal-scoring machine for both the national team and Dynamo Kyiv. He’s found the back of the net 48 times in 110 appearances with the Ukraine and is a major threat to do so today. He’s already got two goals under his belt in this event and is looking for in what is likely the 35-year-old’s last chance to contribute at a Euro.

Terry isn’t much younger at age 31 and knows plenty about Shevchenko and his incredible ability to finish. The onus will be on the former English captain to make sure that doesn’t happen.

While Terry may have lost respect in the eyes of many football fans, he hasn’t lost his form and is still one of the best defenders in the world.

Look for this to be an epic battle between two great players.

 

Prediction: England 1—Ukraine 1
