Euro 2020, Ukraine vs England Live: Key Player 1
Harry Kane (England)
Harry Kane netted the winner in England’s round of 16 tie against Germany and this could be the first of many.
The England captain is known to be one of the most fierce strikers in the history of European football and with his team on the verge of reaching their second consecutive major semifinals, the stage is set for him.
Technically this quarterfinal could be the only match England will be playing outside the United Kingdom as the Three Lions will be back at Wembley should they manage to produce a good performance in Rome.

Raheem Sterling (England)
Raheem Sterling didn’t have the desired finish to the English Premier League campaign but Gareth Southgate preferred the player in his starting lineup and the result is there as the Manchester City forward has already bagged three goals in the tournament so far.
If England manage to lengthen their stay in Euro 2020 Sterling could well pick up the golden boot.

Jack Grealish (England)
Jack Grealish’s absence from the England starting lineup attracted severe criticism. After a string of impressive performances, Grealish could finally make his second start against Ukraine in the quarterfinals.
His swift movement of the ball and his ability to find spaces in the attacking third could prove to be a handful against Andriy Shevchenko’s side.
