Preview: Less than three months after meeting at Euro 2012, England and Ukraine clash again, at Wembley on Tuesday, with this time the focus firmly on the next World Cup in Brazil.
England claimed an edgy 1-0 victory in Donetsk to secure progress at the expense of the co-hosts to the quarterfinals of the European Championships. The match is remembered best, though, for the goal that never was as John Terry hooked Marko Devic's shot away from behind the line. Ukraine are unlikely to need any great rallying cries in order to get motivated for what is sure to be viewed as a revenge meeting with Roy Hodgson's side.
After being appointed just weeks before heading out to Ukraine this summer, Hodgson produced an England side that was very much functional and resilient rather than progressive and pleasing on the eye. While results will ultimately be all-important, the feeling in England is that the much-traveled Hodgson now needs to show that he is capable of getting his side to play with style and crucially be able to control possession.
England began their qualifying campaign on Friday with a morale-boosting 5-0 victory against Moldova, though how much can be gleaned from a match against such sub-standard opposition is questionable.
Already without a number of players through injury, England suffered another blow during that encounter with John Terry picking up an ankle injury that rules him out of the contest with Ukraine. The squad has further been disrupted with Theo Walcott being set home with a stomach virus that also appears to be putting Daniel Sturridge's place in jeopardy.
With Hodgson's options thin on the ground, he has called up three young replacements in Liverpool's Raheem Sterling, Tottenham's Jake Livermore and Adam Lallana of Southampton.
In their first competitive match since their early Euro 2012 exit, Ukraine will have to get used to life without inspirational forward Andriy Shevchenko, who has traded in his boots for a career in politics.
Much of Oleg Blokhin's side's attacking hopes will rest on the creative duo of Andriy Yarmolenko and Yevhen Konoplyanka. Both 22-year-old's showed in flashes during Euro 2012 that they can be a real threat and will have to be marshaled tightly by England.
D: Johnson, Cahill, Lescott, Baines
M: Gerrard, Lampard
Milner, Cleverley, Oxlade-Chamberlain
D: Husyev, Mikhalik, Khacheridi, Selin
Yarmolenko, Garmash, Konoplyanka
F: Devic, Zozulya
Prediction: On home soil, England will be expected to get the three points against a side who could pose a threat to their automatic qualification. However, against a squad decimated by injury, Ukraine have enough in their locker to cause England more than a few problems.
But, while Ukraine have some good players in their side, they are arguably weakest in both penalty areas. Blokhin's outfit lacks a reliable finisher and there are also question marks over their central defense as well as goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov. Like in their previous meeting, it should be a close-run thing, but England should just sneak a victory.
