The first round of knock out matches are done and dusted and we now we enter the 1/4 finals of the Euro 2020. Ukraine and England face off at Stadio Olimpico, Rome this coming Saturday in the European Championship.
Ukraine enter the Euro 2020 as number 24 in the FIFA world ranking, thus signifying the gap between these teams as England come here with a ranking of number 4.
Ukraine made it out of a group stages at a major tournament for only the second time in the history of the country. Question now remains whether they for the first time will be able to go deep as well.
England were named among the top favorites for the title at the Euro 2020, and their efforts so far have not let their reputation down.
Booking a first place in the group at the Euro 2020 proved a little more exciting than England would have hoped, but now they are still in with a good shot of a first European title.
