The second round of games in Group C of EURO 2024 qualification take place on Sunday. England made a very strong start to their campaign, and victory this weekend could already see fans getting exciting about their participation at the major tournament in Germany next year.
Before Betting On England vs Ukraine
There certainly would have been trepidation going into England’s opening match against Italy in Naples, as the Three Lions hadn’t won away from home against the Italians since the 1960s. However, any fears that England could be intimidated by the atmosphere in Naples were answered inside the opening 45 minutes. England raced into a 2-0 lead after goals from Declan Rice and Harry Kane, with the latter seeing him become the standout top scorer for the nation.
However, it was the manner of the performance that would have pleased most fans, as we saw something completely different from this England team. They were prepared to use the dark arts in the closing stages to hold on to a 2-1 win, with Luke Shaw paying the price for that by getting a red card. In previous years, England would have cracked under the pressure, but the night in Naples shows that this Three Lions team is still evolving under Gareth Southgate, which would certainly concern competing nations ahead of the EUROs next year.
Ukraine narrowly missed out on qualification for the World Cup last year, as they were beaten in the final qualifying round by Wales. However, there will be hope that they could avenge that set back with a strong showing in EURO qualification. This will be their first big test, but England’s win over Italy means that it’s likely that the two fixtures against Italy could determine their fate.
Ukraine didn’t play in the opening round of matches in Group C, meaning that they come into this match after winning once, losing once and drawing once across their three most recent internationals.

This should be a good afternoon for England at Wembley, as they should face little issue against Ukraine after a positive display against Italy. We could see the Three Lions recording a win to nil, with Kane once again getting on the scoresheet.
