England will go into this Wembley clash as strong favourites to land a victory, with Gareth Southgate potentially taking charge of the team for the final tournament. His track record has been impressive, with the Three Lions having reached the business end of the previous two World Cups and they were also able to find a way through to the final of the delayed Euro 2020.

All of their games were at Wembley on that occasion and they might be able to use home advantage to good effect here, with England likely to be in plenty of football accumulators when it comes to Sunday’s clash. Southgate is likely to rotate his squad considering that the game comes hard on the heels of a clash against Italy in Naples where the strongest possible team will have been fielded.

Harry Kane is always the first name on the team sheet and the captain will lead England into the game, while Bukayo Saka is having a memorable season for Arsenal and the same applies to Jude Bellingham at Borussia Dortmund. However, it will be interesting to see how England look from a defensive point-of-view which appears to be the weakest department for the team.

Ruslan Rotan continues in caretaker charge of Ukraine and former West Ham player Andriy Yarmolenko will captain a team who boast lots of experience. This includes Arsenal full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko, with Chelsea’s expensive signing Mykhailo Mudryk likely to pose a few problems and we shouldn’t rule out the prospect of the visitors getting something from this clash.
