First Goalscorer Harry Kane 5/2 with Midnite

England made a strong start to their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign on Friday night after edging out Italy 2-1, despite having a man down. Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions were two up at the break, before being pegged back and reduced to 10 men after Luke Shaw got sent off. But they held out for an opening three points.

Attention swiftly turns to Ukraine for their final game of this international break and the second of their qualifying campaign in Group C, which they currently sit atop of thanks to that triumph in Naples at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona — which also saw Harry Kane become the nations’ all-time top scorer.

For Ukraine, this will be their first match-up in the five-nation group. Now under the guidance of interim boss Ruslan Rotan, The Blue and Yellow last played a European Championship game against England in the previous tournament in 2021, losing 4-0 in the quarter-finals. They will have revenge on their minds, and aspirations of making next year’s edition in Germay.

England vs Ukraine match stats

Harry Kane netted what proved to be the winning goal on Friday night against Italy. His calmly-struck penalty brought his tally up to 54, which moved him ahead of Wayne Rooney (53 goals). Although bagged from the spot, the Tottenham striker will fancy his chances of scoring from any situation against Ukraine. As well as being lethal with either foot, the 29-year-old has actually scored more headed goals than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues this season (nine). He also scored twice the last time he faced Ukraine. His nostrils will be flaring.
