England, under Gareth Southgate’s leadership, is a force to reckon with, especially in the qualifiers. Their current track record in the Euro 2024 qualifiers is impressive with a solid four wins, including an impressive 2-1 victory against Italy and a 2-0 win over Ukraine. Following these, the Three Lions effortlessly defeated Malta and North Macedonia, racking up 11 goals in the process.
With an aim to top their group, Southgate’s strategy has been to blend seasoned players with emerging talents. New faces like Levi Colwill, Eberechi Eze, and Eddie Nketiah have made their presence felt in the squad. However, some fans have raised eyebrows at the continued inclusion of Jordan Henderson, Harry Maguire, and Kalvin Phillips. These selections show Southgate’s trust in his core players, even though some believe the younger squad members from the Under-21 side deserve more playtime.
Despite any debates, England seems poised for their fifth straight win in the qualifiers.
Expect Goals from Both Sides Post their 2-0 loss to England, Ukraine made an impressive comeback with a 3-3 draw against Germany, followed by victories over North Macedonia and Malta. Presently, they are right behind England in their group standings.
The match, to be played in Poland, will be crucial for Ukraine as they aim to solidify their spot, potentially edging out Italy for the second position. A lot of Ukraine’s players are now showcasing their talents in top European leagues. Notably, Viktor Tsygankov and Artem Dovbyk have been standout performers for Girona in Spain, and young star Illya Zabarnyi has made an impact at Bournemouth.
Managed by Serhiy Rebrov, Ukraine is a team on the rise and their recent form suggests they might score against England. However, considering the strength and form of the English side, a win might be a tough ask for Ukraine. Predicting the match outcome, a 3-1 victory in favor of England seems likely, given their superior attack.
Kane Thriving in Germany Harry Kane’s transition from Tottenham to Bayern Munich was one of the summer’s headline transfers. Kane has settled quickly into the Bundesliga rhythm, scoring three times in his initial three games. With the weight of transfer speculations behind him, the England skipper seems to be in prime form, making it likely he’ll make his mark in the upcoming match.
