Artem Besedin has been ruled out for six months due to the knee injury caused by Markus Danielsson’s red-card tackle against Sweden, while Andriy Yarmolenko will be assessed after hobbling off in that clash and Oleksandr Zubkov is also doubtful.
Mason Mount will be hoping to return to the line-up after only returning from Covid-19 isolation on the day of the Germany game, although Declan Rice and Kieran Trippier may not be risked after struggling for fitness towards the end of that game.

Ukraine vs England preview
While fans could be forgiven for getting carried away following the Germany win and given the team’s potential opponents between now and the final, Gareth Southgate is unlikely to take anything for granted.
Having remained true to his cautious approach throughout the tournament, he has been rewarded with steady progress to the last eight with four clean sheets in a row.
This record is unlikely to be put under too much pressure by Ukraine, who are expected to set up with a similarly defensive line-up to the one that ground out that attritional extra-time victory over the Swedes.
Ukraine vs England tips & predictions
All in all, even odds (2.00) seem too good to pass up on England moving one step closer to their dream with a straightforward victory and seventh consecutive clean sheet against Ukraine.
