Why you should back England
The Three Lions are coming off a fourth-place finish at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and are making their fifth quarterfinal appearance in the European Championships. England has kept a clean sheet in all four of its matches so far at Euro 2020, defeating Croatia 1-0, drawing 0-0 against Scotland and beating the Czech Republic 1-0 in the group stage. In a round of 16 matchup with Germany, the England attack finally started showing signs of life, with Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane both netting goals in a 2-0 win.
With Kyle Walker, John Stones and Harry Maguire providing solidity as part of a back three, while Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips provide cover from the midfield and Kieran Trippier and Luke Shaw getting involved in the attack from fullback. If Sterling can continue providing attacking creativity going forward and Kane can use his late goal against Germany to jumpstart what has been an otherwise slow tournament, England should have more than enough attacking power given the strength of its defense.
Why you should back Ukraine
Ukraine entered Euro 2020 ranked 24th in the FIFA World Rankings and began its tournament with a late loss to the Netherlands. However, three points against North Macedonia in the second group stage game wound up being enough to send The Blue and Yellow through to the knockout stage.
Against Sweden in the round of 16, Manchester City fullback Oleksandr Zinchenko was able to push forward with Ukraine switching to a back three and he played a pivotal role in a 2-1 win. Zinchenko scored on a brilliant volley in the 27th minute to jump start the scoring and then provided the cross that Artem Dovbyk put home in the 121st minute to win in stoppage time. With Ukraine showing some prowess in a back three, Zinchenko getting forward as a fullback will continue to be pivotal against a strong England defense.
