England beat Ukraine 4-0 in Rome, easing their way into the UEFA EURO 2020 semi finals.

Harry Kane took the lead for England inside the opening four minutes of the game from a brilliant Raheem Sterling through ball. Ukraine played to block England dominating in the midfield for the rest of the half.

However, England scored almost immediately resuming the second half. Luke Shaw’s freekick met with his club captain, Harry Maguire who headed home extending the lead to two nil.

Harry Kane scored for the second time in the game from another brilliant Luke Shaw cross. Ball went between the goalkeeper’s legs. Keeper saved a thunder strike from Harry Kane denying his hattrick. Fourth goal of the game was scored by Liverpool skipper, Jordan Henderson, his first ever goal for his country.
