The match is over. Whew. That was…something.
Khomchenovskiy replaces Yarmolenko for Ukraine.
A loose ball bounces in the middle of Ukraine's box, and Lampard pounces, directing a header near the goal…
…but it goes just wide!
That would have been something for tonight's centurion.
Three minutes of stoppage time…
Now Ukraine make another change. Seleznyov replaces Zozulya
England make a change. Theo Walcott makes way for Tom Cleverley.
85'—UKR 0-0 ENG
Yarmolenko shoots way over after cutting in from the right. This is looking like a scoreless draw…

Corner for Ukraine, taken by the ever-dangerous Konoplyanka. Fedetskyy is unmarked on the six-yard box, but he directs his header straight at Hart!
73'—UKR 0-0 ENG
England manage to clear the danger and try a counter, led by Walcott. It comes to nothing.
Konoplyanka bends a shot just wide of the post! It took a deflection on the way out.
Corner to Ukraine…
Kyle Walker makes a clumsy challenge on Zozulya along the edge of the box as Ukraine break forward. The referee rules the foul was just outside the box and books Walker.
Dangerous free kick on Ukraine's left side, a yard outside the box.
Meanwhile, Ukraine have replaced Gusev with Roman Besuz.
