England play their first home game of their Euro 2024 qualification campaign against Ukraine today.

After an important victory in Italy to kick off their Group C campaign, the Three Lions can further solidify their tag as favourites to reach next summer’s tournament in Germany by downing the eastern Europeans at Wembley.

Ukraine did not play during the week as they made use of extra preparation time for their own bid to reach the Euros.


Narrowly denied what would have been a morale-boosting trip to the winter’s World Cup, Ruslan Rotan’s side are still finding their feet amid the Russian invasion back home that has so severely disrupted their domestic sporting calendar.

But a side that contains the likes of Arsenal star Oleksandr Zinchenko and big-money Chelsea signing Mykhailo Mudryk will be more determined than ever to make their mark on the world stage.

Date, kick-off time and venue

England vs Ukraine is scheduled for a 5pm BST kick-off today on Sunday, March 26, 2023.

The match will take place at Wembley Stadium in London.

England vs Ukraine prediction

The Three Lions were not perfectly convincing against a ropy Italian side on Thursday night but, with home backing, should have the confidence to get another win over the line.
