Ukraine ended as Poland. And the two country organizing the competition Euro 2012 left since the group stage. Pushed from behind by a Donbass Arena colored yellow-blue, Ukrainians were unable to withstand their opponents’ islanders, locking themselves in their own helplessness. British soft game started and tried to freeze the game in midfield knowing that the result will put pressure slightly influenced by Oleh Blokhin players.
The England system, little changed after the return of Rooney. Hodgson did not change anything in the middle compartment, Walcott was allowed back on the bench. As defense, chiseled in stone. Without the creation of the British middle of not giving them the opportunity of a game based on possession, such bands are required, and the top and pushed play pivotal role in most phases of attack. Since the beginning of the game, Rooney went down to the midfield circle to get balls to extreme, to be distributed in Ukrainians square.
The hosts, the whole system was based on young offensive Yevheniy Konoplyanka who gave large beat Glen Johnson’s head in the first half, when the batch had some dangerous attack on the left side. The technician of Ukraine relied on a new couple in the attack, consisting of Devic and Milevskiy, leaving on the bank Voronin and Shevchenko. Quite a bit of looking, the two did not yield near Lescott and Terry gave and they were each change in the second half.
The first half was quite, while the games of hosts have passed away several chances, but not to provide a calculated game. The start of the second part brought only goal of the match, Wayne Rooney managed to score a deflected centering head of Captain Gerrard. England withdrew then, not as low as in the game against Sweden, and was able to manage minimal benefit without much effort. Lack of determination if, unable to impose their pace against England, Ukrainians would still return books qualification, if the phase Marko Devic, when John Terry has denied the ball apparently wears, Viktor Kassa validate the success.
