Gareth Southgate’s England have their eyes set on a fifth straight win in the Euro 2024 qualifiers when they make an away trip to face Ukraine on Saturday night.

Due to the hosts’ ongoing invasion at the hands of Russia, the Polish city of Wroclaw will stage the fixture which promises to be a crucial one for both teams.

Currently, the Three Lions top Group C on 12 points and have scored 15 goals whilst conceding just once in the four games played so far.

Ukraine on the other hand sit in second place – the other automatic qualification spot – on 6 points after picking two wins out of the three matches they have played with the loss coming at the hands of England.

Southgate’s men need just one more win to confirm their spot in the Euro 2024 event while Ukraine need to keep their momentum if they are to make the tourney for a fourth successive time.
