England 1 : 0 Ukraine

Not vintage England by any means, though we haven't really seen any signs of that in this competition. Still, all they had to do was not lose, tricky bit was, they were playing the host nation who had to win. Good defending, a simple goal and a blind touchline referee all contributed to a good result. Yes there will be those who say the Ukraine should have had a goal and that we were lucky. Yes we were, but these things even out, remember Lampard and a similar no goal against Germany back in South Africa?
As it is, we're not going home (yet) and we face Italy on Saturday night.
