As a result, England and Ukraine reached the quarter-finals and made Euro 2020 even crazier than it was.
England started its journey at Euro 2020 very well. The team qualified for the knockout stage from Group D. The national team defeated Croatia (1:0), Czech Republic (0:1), and had a 0:0 draw with Scotland. In general, England earned six points to finish first in its group and meet Germany in the next phase. The outcome of this match is in history books – Germany was kicked out of Euro 2020 after missing two goals by England’s Kane and Sterling. After beating the reigning World Cup champions, England became a number-one favorite to win the championship according to online gambling sites in the UK.
In its turn, Ukraine became one of the Euro 2020 dark horses. The national team went through the group stage with modest success: it defeated North Macedonia (2:1) but lost to Austria (0:1) and Netherlands (3:2). However, the first match with the Dutch team in Group C showed that Ukrainians are ready to fight for the trophy and here they are. The team qualified for the next stage and beat Sweden during extra time in a tense match (1:2). Such an outcome surprised many fans and resulted in enhancing Ukraine’s odds to beat England.
