I really fancy England here, especially after their impressive win against Germany. If I was an England player now I’d be looking at the schedule and thinking about how this is a great opportunity to get to the final. France, Germany, Portugal and Netherlands are all out and a couple more big teams could go as well.

That could be a free route to the final. They’ve got a lot of green lights and they made a huge step against Germany. It was history for them to beat Germany.

It’s very difficult to win games at these competitions as every team prepares well. You still need that extra bit of luck sometimes.

If England are mentally ready and they’re aware to not make the same mistake against Iceland, where they were arrogant, they will win. The players will have seen what happened to France this week as well. The players have the quality too.

I think England will win for sure and I fancy Jack Grealish to Score Anytime. I really like him, I’m a huge fan of him.

England are going to be odds-on favourites and Ukraine got through by the skin of their teeth. Yes it was a good turnaround from Ukraine against Sweden but they shouldn’t be able to compete with England.

Andriy Yarmolenko is Ukraine’s danger man and we’ve seen what he can do when he’s up for it. He’s got a wand of a left foot but this England team haven’t conceded yet. That’s a big thing.

England will probably go with a back four and this game needs a Jack Grealish or a Phil Foden. They will be facing a blanket defence as Ukraine will play five at the back.

England will need someone to open them up. In training this week, they will have to work on how to break down that five-man defence.

I’m going with England to Win to Nil and Harry Kane to Score Anytime. He got his goal against Germany and hopefully he’ll continue that form and net against Ukraine. If I had to pick a scoreline, I’d back England to Win 2-0.
