The “it’s coming home” chants are going to grow louder in England. Harry Kane’s men put on a show at the Olympico in Rome on Saturday as they outclassed Ukraine 4-0 in the quarter-final. Having booked a place in the quarter-final of the Euros for the first time in 25 years, England will take on Denmark at Wembley.
A record-breaking brace from Harry Kane and goals from Harry Maguire and substitute Jordan Henderson helped the Three Lions hammer Ukraine. It was a dominant performance in the second-half as Andriy Shevchenko’s men head home after a disappointing quarter-final performance.
Harry Kane got the side up and running as early as the 4th minute, their earliest goal at the Euros since 2004. It was set up by Raheem Sterling who was brilliant on the big evening for the Three Lions.
England did have a couple of chances to double the lead in the first half but Ukraine quickly gathered themselves back and put pressure on England.
Yaremchuk was a live wire on the left flank for Ukraine in the first half as he combined with veteran Yarmolenko who threatened to equalise in the first half.
However, the game was put to bed in a span of 4 minutes in the 2nd half when Harry Kane and Harry Maguire headed the 3rd and 2nd goals, respectively.
Luke Shaw was brilliant as the left back as he made the forward runs frequently to deliver the knockout punch. His free-kick from the left to Maguire was a cracker of a delivery while he provided the assist to Kane’s 2nd goal as well.
Ukraine 0-4 England
Kane (4, 50), Maguire (46), Henderson (63)
