Euro 2020: England Will Stroll Over Ukraine, Semi-Final Opponent -Shearer

Former England captain, Alan Shearer believes the Three Lion’s passage to the final of Euro 2020 has been made so easy for the team.

Speaking with BBC Sports, the former Newcastle striker stated that Ukraine and the winner between Denmark and Czech can’t stop England’s passage to the final.

England defeated Germany 2-0 in the round of 16 while Ukraine edged Sweden 2-1 as well.

According to Shearer, he says: “It is onwards and upwards for England at this European Championship, and nights like the one against Germany allow us all to dream a little about what might happen next.

“Before a ball was kicked in this tournament I said what I wanted from Euro 2020 was something for us all to shout about and look forward to after such a difficult few months.

“That is exactly what England are giving us now, and hopefully there is more of the same to come.

“It felt like there were 140,000 fans inside Wembley on Tuesday, let alone 40,000, and the team responded to them – especially in the second half. There was an absolutely incredible atmosphere, a very good England performance… and the perfect result.

“There will be more than 60,000 there for the semi-final if we can get past Ukraine in the quarter-finals in Rome on Saturday, and playing in front of those amazing fans again is one heck of an incentive to make it back.

“If we are lucky enough to make it to the final that will be our sixth game at Wembley at Euro 2020. I don’t think we could have wished for a much better scenario than this one, but it’s more than just having home advantage that gives me confidence about England’s chances of winning this tournament now.

“Our side of the draw looks decent too, but I am not really that bothered about who we play next, or thinking about the last four against either Denmark or the Czech Republic.”
