The two were drawn together in the 2010 World Cup qualifying group, with England winning their home game and Ukraine winning in Dnipropetrovsk.

At Euro 2012 they played against each other again, with England winning 1-0 thanks to a goal from Wayne Rooney.

England’s last two games against Ukraine took place in 2013 in a World Cup qualifying group. Both home and away games were drawn.

Who should you watch out for in the Ukrainian players?

The English players will be very familiar with a member of the Ukrainian team.

Winger Andriy Yarmolenko plays for West Ham United in the Premier League and has impressed during the tournament.

In fact, Yarmolenko used his cute left foot well in the five-goal thriller against the Netherlands in the group stage of that tournament.

He scored a worldie from way outside the box to keep the fans on their feet. Top containers, as they say.

In addition to Yarmolenko, midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi (who plays club football for Atalanta in Italy) also impressed.

Elsewhere, defender Oleksandr Zinchenko is a member of the Manchester City side that just won the Premier League title.

Who is Ukraine’s most famous coach?

Folk hero Andriy Shevchenko is undoubtedly Ukraine’s best player of all time, having scored 48 goals in his 111 games for his country.

He was also a superstar at club level and became a legend at Dynamo Kiev, AC Milan and our own Chelsea.

Now he is flying at full speed as the coach of the national team.

He has won 25 of his 51 games as a responsible person.
