A England had no difficulties in securing his place in the semifinal of the Eurocup, this Saturday, the 3rd, by thrashing the Ukraine 4-0 at the Olimpic in Rome, Italy. Harry Kane, author of two goals, was the highlight of the match. Maguire and Handerson also scored for the team led by Gareth Southgate, who will face the Denmark, next Wednesday, 7th at Wembley, in a duel that is worth a spot in the decision. It is worth remembering that the English team is the only world champion that has not yet won the European tournament.

Making their first game away from home, England opened the scoring early, at 3 minutes, with Kane. The center forward received beautiful assistance from Raheem Sterling and stretched to complete for the nets. Even with the goal, the “English Team” did not go up, prioritizing the maintenance of ball possession and preventing the advances of the Ukrainians. With the exception of a 15th-minute shot by striker Yaremchuk, palmed by Pickford, Ukraine failed to disturb the English. Without pushing, Southgate’s team took the lead into the break.

In the second half, in another fulminating goal by the English, the score was extended, in the first minute of the second half, in a free kick that had the deflection of defender Maguire. Three minutes later, Sterling found Shawn on the left with a letter pass. In favorable conditions for the cross, the full-back hit the measure and Harry Kane just had the job of making a simple header to make England’s third and his second in the game. On minute 16, Kane, the highlight of the match, almost made his third in a beautiful shot saved by Bushchan. A minute later, midfielder Jordan Henderson closed the account and the rout in the Italian capital with a header from a corner kick. With a four-goal advantage on the scoreboard, England began to play the ball calmly under shouts of “Olé!” by the fans present at the Olympic stadium in Rome. Ukraine just followed, but no longer hopeless and without any reaction.
