England continues quietly against Ukraine


England confirm. Three days after their important victory in Italy, the Three Lions validated this success by winning again, against Ukraine (2-0), this Sunday, on behalf of the 2nd day of the Euro qualifiers 2024. After the tributes paid to Harry Kane, now top scorer in the history of the Three Lions ahead of Wayne Rooney, and to George Cohen, 1966 world champion who died last December, England have not experienced an end to very complicated afternoon at Wembley.

Dominating, Gareth Southgate’s men and their attacking trio Saka-Kane-Maddison gained momentum and initially lacked sharpness in the decisive zone. Malinovskyi’s Ukraine, holder alongside Zinchenko or Mudryk, remained too timid to hope for anything, like this strike from the Chelsea striker largely fleeing the frame (43rd). Except that in the meantime, the Three Lions had already killed the game. After two big misses (25th, 30th), something unusual for him, Kane made the powder speak at the reception of a center returning from Saka (1-0, 37th), signing his 55th goal in selection.

Decisive, the twirling winger of Arsenal then put himself even more forward thanks to a brilliant distant inspiration allowing his country to take a two-goal lead just before the break (2-0, 40th). Without a stop by Trubin in front of the English captain (41st), the addition could even have been even more salty at the end of the first 45 minutes. On returning from the locker room, the face of the meeting was not much different. But Maddison (51st), Bellingham (58th), Saka (71st), very prominent, and Maguire (90th + 1) lacked accuracy in the last gesture, like the newcomers Gallagher and Grealish, who stumbled on Trubin ( 87th, 90th+2).

Nothing to regret for the English, who were able to celebrate the first cape in the selection of Ivan Toney (Brentford), who came into play in place of Kane for the last 10 minutes. And enough, above all, for England to keep Group C firmly in control of these Euro 2024 qualifiers. 2 wins in 2 games, 4 goals scored, 0 conceded: Saka, Kane and the Three Lions can start again in their respective clubs with a sense of accomplishment.
