Good evening. You can relax now a check out the other two sites in

:00:48.:00:53.

Group D. We start with a reminder of how England fared in their

:00:53.:00:59.

opening game against France. The commentators are Guy Mowbray and

:00:59.:01:09.
:01:09.:01:14.

with an new cautious approach. The French side is the one England

:01:14.:01:23.

expected to face and arguably just one player away from full strength.

:01:23.:01:33.
:01:33.:01:34.

Diarra starts in midfield. Evra, Cabaye and Nasri faced their

:01:34.:01:40.

Premier League counter pots. England on the defensive? Perhaps

:01:40.:01:47.

not quite as much as we thought. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain preferred

:01:47.:01:56.

to Stuart Downing on the left-hand side. No Wayne Rooney, he is

:01:56.:02:01.

suspended, of course. Just Ashley Young and Stephen Gerrard left from

:02:01.:02:11.
:02:11.:02:29.

the team that lost to France in wide from his Manchester City

:02:29.:02:39.
:02:39.:02:50.

could not get himself adjusted to put it into the centre! Big chance

:02:50.:02:58.

for Milner. Definitely onside, he just never wrapped his left foot

:02:58.:03:08.
:03:08.:03:25.

rash. Joleon Lescott gives England the lead! Easy as you like! Created

:03:25.:03:31.

by the captain, scored by the Manchester city centre back. Inside

:03:31.:03:39.

half an hour. It is a great ball in but there is only England that want

:03:39.:03:45.

to attack it. It is a good header but perfect delivery and nobody

:03:45.:03:55.
:03:55.:04:12.

from the French team wanted to Chamberlain and the teenager is

:04:12.:04:22.
:04:22.:04:23.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 57 seconds

:04:23.:05:20.

his header in the first place and past Joe Hart in a flash. That was

:05:20.:05:28.

a cracker. It was, superbly taken. Look how deep England are. They are

:05:28.:05:35.

almost on the penalty spot. But a perfect finish. I think from

:05:35.:05:40.

England's point of view, the centre backs need to push on. Get on the

:05:40.:05:47.

edge of the penalty area. accuracy, the power and the pace,

:05:47.:05:57.
:05:57.:05:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 57 seconds

:05:57.:06:55.

-- but. The goalkeeper of the class are all Joe Hart, it takes some

:06:56.:07:05.
:07:06.:07:19.

certainly for Liverpool. This is fine, come inside. The next time he

:07:19.:07:24.

comes forward and you are playing against him, you are not sure if he

:07:24.:07:34.
:07:34.:07:34.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 57 seconds

:07:34.:08:26.

referee thought it was unfair Lee. The referee is telling him to get

:08:26.:08:36.
:08:36.:08:37.

up. Get him off, if you are really injured, get some treatment! He is

:08:37.:08:47.
:08:47.:09:23.

gesticulating as though Johnson could have been a vital touch.

:09:23.:09:29.

Watch Hart here, I think he is crumbling. He is scrambling to get

:09:29.:09:39.
:09:39.:09:57.

Rooney was instinctively trying to put it in from his seat in there

:09:57.:10:07.
:10:07.:10:32.

stands! A lovely whipped ball in years ago in South Africa they

:10:32.:10:38.

started with a draw against United States of America. They were pretty

:10:38.:10:43.

much booed off the park. Very different now. It is France him are

:10:43.:10:47.

the more frustrated team and England will consider that job done.

:10:47.:10:56.

They have got a draw from their We would have been delighted with a

:10:56.:11:01.

win but you saw tonight that France have fantastic players. We are

:11:01.:11:05.

satisfied with the performance but we also said before the game, no

:11:05.:11:10.

matter what the result today, we do not get carried away. It is great

:11:10.:11:15.

to get off the mark and now we need to fill -- followed up with a win.

:11:15.:11:19.

Would it be fair to say the referee did not do you any favours at

:11:19.:11:24.

times? It is easy to look for excuses. Sometimes he gave us

:11:24.:11:28.

things that we did not deserve. We do not look at the referee, we look

:11:29.:11:32.

at our performance and analyse but overall we are satisfied. There

:11:33.:11:36.

were a lot of young players out there tonight, what have you

:11:36.:11:42.

proved? Yes, John players, but good players. Wayne Rooney showed all

:11:43.:11:52.
:11:53.:11:54.

those years ago that if you are England have still failed to win

:11:54.:12:00.

any opening game in any European Championship game in history but a

:12:00.:12:04.

decent result against quite possibly the best team in the group.

:12:04.:12:11.

Lee Dixon, would you say that is fair enough? Decent result, decent

:12:11.:12:15.

performance at times. There are lots of issues that they can

:12:15.:12:19.

improve on. They played quite deep at times and the centre backs were

:12:20.:12:25.

not quite sure who to pick up. But I thought the youngsters did very

:12:25.:12:30.

well, well back did ever so well, Parker was everywhere, and I

:12:30.:12:36.

thought the performance was encouraging -- Welbeck. The French

:12:36.:12:40.

at the back, I thought the two centre-backs were there for the

:12:40.:12:46.

taking. They seemed to start each half well and then petered out.

:12:47.:12:50.

am pretty sure that we Hodgson after 25 minutes would have been

:12:50.:12:55.

delighted with the way that they started the game. Well back was

:12:55.:13:02.

giving the back for all sorts of problems. -- Danny Welbeck. The one

:13:02.:13:08.

thing that disappointed me is that we scored a great goal from a free-

:13:08.:13:12.

kick but we did not seem to get enough balls into the box after

:13:12.:13:17.

that. But you would have taken that before the game, without a doubt.

:13:17.:13:26.

Forgive me for getting the English few First! I endorsed entirely what

:13:26.:13:31.

the two guys have said. The first half, I thought the movement was

:13:31.:13:37.

intelligent and Bright. They got the goal and they possibly might

:13:38.:13:46.

have had two or three. Then, as Lee said, the French came into the

:13:46.:13:50.

ascendancy and England went deeper and deeper. They paid the ultimate

:13:50.:13:55.

prize for it. Two small criticisms, they did go to, and secondly when

:13:56.:14:00.

you're under pressure and it is very hot, you have to hold that.

:14:00.:14:07.

But boy Hodgson will be delighted with that performance. For all our

:14:07.:14:10.

play in that first 30 minutes, we never really troubled the

:14:10.:14:19.

goalkeeper. Milner had a great chance but he never hit the target.

:14:19.:14:29.
:14:29.:14:43.

Hit the target once! This came from shoulder of Diarra. For me, that is

:14:43.:14:49.

not -- that is what we did not do enough of. I would have thought, we

:14:50.:14:59.
:15:00.:15:02.

have seen them panic and struggle There was almost immediately the

:15:02.:15:09.

sense of sitting back. It is so easy to do. The 18 yard line, that

:15:09.:15:14.

should be the sanctuary, but to knock it back towards your

:15:14.:15:24.
:15:24.:15:33.

That line is always there. Do not go into the box unless you have to.

:15:33.:15:39.

It France only threatened from long-range shot. The French did not

:15:39.:15:49.
:15:49.:15:53.

want to get behind, they felt they players, they are all in there. --

:15:53.:16:03.
:16:03.:16:10.

added ends up in the back of the net.

:16:10.:16:14.

If you do not have anyone to mark for long periods of the game, you

:16:14.:16:17.

almost get into a false sense of security and think you will just

:16:17.:16:21.

told that line. All this sudden, you drop back, because you let the

:16:21.:16:26.

people in front of you do your work. You should step up a little bit.

:16:26.:16:30.

Gerrard should have been holding a higher line.

:16:30.:16:33.

Should that come from the goalkeeper or the central

:16:33.:16:43.
:16:43.:16:44.

It should come from John Terry and from the goalkeeper. He should be

:16:44.:16:50.

on the 18-yard line. The goalkeeper should be telling them to push out.

:16:50.:16:53.

If you are a centre half and it is hot, you are quite happy staying

:16:53.:16:59.

there, because all the work is going on in front of the!

:16:59.:17:04.

At the other red, there was a lot of promising play from England,

:17:04.:17:08.

particularly in the first half on the break.

:17:08.:17:13.

This is what the French did not do, running behind. Welbeck was full of

:17:13.:17:23.
:17:23.:17:34.

that. He is going up against Rami available. He did this all first

:17:34.:17:44.
:17:44.:17:57.

great run. For me, he has got to score there.

:17:57.:18:04.

He is falling away, and you have got to go across the goalkeeper.

:18:04.:18:08.

Penises to put the ball in quickly. The forwards have made their run

:18:08.:18:18.
:18:18.:18:29.

Welbeck was terrific in that first 30 minutes.

:18:29.:18:33.

When you run that way, behind defenders, they will go deeper, and

:18:33.:18:37.

then you can go forward and you can turn, because the defenders are

:18:37.:18:41.

expecting you to run in the Hyde, so I thought Welbeck did both jobs

:18:41.:18:47.

very well. He shows a lot of promise. He could

:18:47.:18:52.

be a real find for England. The defending at times was very stoic,

:18:52.:19:02.
:19:02.:19:31.

but not the heart or spirit, it was France were expecting to beat us,

:19:31.:19:37.

but we have come at with a point. If you look at the French,

:19:37.:19:43.

technically, they are very good, but England were very good.

:19:44.:19:49.

Let's get the thought of the manager, Roy Hodgson.

:19:49.:19:53.

1-1 against France. A good performance overall?

:19:53.:19:57.

I thought we played well. The boys put in a good performance from

:19:57.:20:01.

start to finish. There were times in the game where they kept

:20:01.:20:05.

possession very well and last -- asked a lot of questions in the

:20:05.:20:10.

final third. They take an extra pass, an extra pass, and they are

:20:10.:20:14.

waiting for you to lose your shape or your discipline so they can slip

:20:14.:20:18.

somebody in, but with the chances in the game, we had some very good

:20:18.:20:23.

ones ourselves. The result does not flatter us.

:20:23.:20:27.

You said you wanted to see England passing and moving better. Did you

:20:27.:20:31.

see that today? At times, yes. We started the

:20:31.:20:35.

second half well. We need to build up our confidence so that when we

:20:35.:20:38.

get the ball in the final third, made it we take that extra touch

:20:38.:20:43.

and extra pass and having little more patience. It is quite an

:20:43.:20:45.

English characteristic, but when you reach this level of football,

:20:46.:20:50.

you get caught out a little bit if you do not do it, and then the

:20:50.:20:53.

counter-attacks can become a very dangerous, as happened on a couple

:20:53.:20:58.

of occasions. Steven Gerrard put in a great ball

:20:58.:21:04.

for Joleon Lescott's first goal. Yes, it was a great ball. The

:21:04.:21:06.

French have a good spell before half-time which led to the

:21:06.:21:11.

equaliser. Not a good time to concede. I

:21:11.:21:15.

assume you wanted to hang on to half-time and reassess things?

:21:15.:21:20.

Yes, if we had done so, I think we could have got away with it, as we

:21:20.:21:25.

took control again at the start of the second half.

:21:25.:21:31.

Sensible words from her Roy Hodgson. Sensible words from her Roy Hodgson.

:21:31.:21:32.

Sensible words from her Roy Hodgson. Sensible words from her Roy Hodgson.

:21:33.:21:38.

P Beckett guises the frailties. They

:21:39.:21:43.

They lost their lead by losing possession. The passing when the

:21:43.:21:48.

defence lost it, England were not great at times towards the end of

:21:48.:21:55.

the first half. That is the frailty. Expectations are probably growing a

:21:55.:22:01.

little. Let's keep it calm! Tighter focus on our live game, two

:22:01.:22:05.

European giants. Ukraine is the biggest country entirely in Europe,

:22:05.:22:10.

and Sweden is fourth-biggest. It may only have gained independence

:22:10.:22:18.

in 1991, but Ukraine has a rich The welcome to Ukraine, and you

:22:18.:22:23.

have to be careful, it is not the Ukraine, it is simply Ukraine.

:22:23.:22:31.

Thank you for having us. This place has a quite remarkable

:22:31.:22:36.

past. Here is a quick history lesson.

:22:36.:22:41.

The earliest form of Ukraine was the first Russian state, and the

:22:41.:22:46.

largest in Europe. Until it was smashed to pieces after attacks

:22:46.:22:54.

from all sides, including the Mongolians. By the 12th century,

:22:54.:22:59.

Ukraine was carved into three. The borders kept changing, until a

:22:59.:23:04.

massive war between Poland, Russia and the Cossacks divided it into

:23:04.:23:08.

little regions. After all those problems after all those years,

:23:08.:23:13.

still Ukraine could not find peace. But thankfully, they had Motherland

:23:13.:23:21.

mother, who looks like a decent centre-half, to protect them.

:23:21.:23:27.

This is the bit that everyone remembers. The Russians. They had

:23:27.:23:31.

always been there or thereabouts in Ukrainian history. By the 19th

:23:32.:23:36.

century, they owned a large part of it. By the 20th century, Lenin had

:23:36.:23:41.

taken over the lot and for the USSR. Then the Germans decided they

:23:41.:23:46.

fancied running it for a while. Not for long, though, as there followed

:23:46.:23:50.

50 years of communist rule, until that fell to pieces and Ukraine was

:23:50.:23:57.

married wanted to be. -- where it wanted to be.

:23:57.:24:04.

Finally, Ukraine is its own country, and what a country it is. In fact,

:24:04.:24:10.

Lviv is a world heritage site. Remarkably, it was right here where

:24:10.:24:14.

Polish football first started, because they owed this place then a.

:24:14.:24:18.

Not those 3, Poland owed this part of the world, at the first goal by

:24:18.:24:22.

Polish food - barrack the first goal of Polish football was caught

:24:22.:24:28.

here. This is moonshine, a typical

:24:28.:24:33.

Ukrainian Fokker that you follow up with pork fat to soak up the

:24:33.:24:43.
:24:43.:24:49.

alcohol. -- Ukrainian that the Down south is Crimea, home to the

:24:49.:24:53.

Crimean War. It was the Iraq -- inspiration behind the charge of

:24:53.:25:02.

the Light Brigade. Ukrainians paint their Easter eggs. Anyway, famous

:25:02.:25:10.

pork spare income -- include Andriy Shevchenko and Sergei Butko. He was

:25:10.:25:15.

born in Donetsk, a coal-mining city formed in the 18th century by a

:25:15.:25:21.

Welshman. As far as Kiev is concerned, I am afraid it was not

:25:21.:25:25.

founded by a Welshman. Oh, and chicken Kiev, they were not

:25:25.:25:33.

invented here. But Dynamo Kyiv are from here. They are not bad. They

:25:33.:25:37.

have won three European trophies. As for the Ukraine national team,

:25:37.:25:40.

over the years, they have been slightly less successful, but they

:25:40.:25:47.

do get to host the final right here at the Olympic Stadium.

:25:48.:25:51.

Jake is still in Ukraine, in the centre of Kiev in the Fan Mile.

:25:51.:26:01.
:26:01.:26:07.

I am, I get all the best jobs! On a night where Ukraine appear at the

:26:07.:26:10.

European Championship for the first time, the place to be his Kiev, the

:26:10.:26:14.

square that has been so central for the struggle for independence.

:26:15.:26:20.

Since Ukraine's a session to independence, this place has been

:26:20.:26:25.

Independence Square, but it was not the end of the story in 1991. It

:26:25.:26:30.

was the scene of many student demonstrations and hunger as those

:26:30.:26:36.

famous shot in 2004 off 80 Shanker standing on as a there -- standing

:26:36.:26:43.

on a stage promising Ukrainians a wonderful future. It feels over the

:26:43.:26:47.

years that if Ukraine wanted to his boys to be heard, this is where it

:26:47.:26:55.

comes. -- the President standing on a stage. This country, you feel

:26:55.:26:57.

they have finally got the independence they work so hard for

:26:58.:27:01.

over the years, but what they are looking for is their identity, and

:27:01.:27:06.

I think the next couple of weeks is more important for Ukraine to show

:27:06.:27:09.

Europe what they can offer off the football pitch as well as on it.

:27:09.:27:14.

Tonight, it is what is happening on the pitch. Tens of thousands of

:27:14.:27:20.

people are rain here enjoying the local brew, and I was thinking that

:27:20.:27:23.

if Andriy Shevchenko has caused their tour -- plenty of goals, you

:27:23.:27:28.

never know, you could come here on holiday next summer and have a

:27:28.:27:38.
:27:38.:27:38.

coffee in a Shevchenko square! Inside a noisy stadium are Jonathan

:27:38.:27:44.

Pearce and Martin Keown. It is very hot, steamy, sweaty,

:27:44.:27:49.

yellow inside the stadium. And very loud as well. The noise levels

:27:49.:27:54.

increased when it was known that Shevchenko start for Ukraine. The

:27:54.:28:00.

national hero of this country. Are you surprised he starts?

:28:00.:28:03.

Since they gained independence, he has flown the flag throughout

:28:03.:28:08.

Europe. He is a goalscorer with an eye for goal, I expected to do well

:28:08.:28:12.

tonight. Conditions will play a part, it is

:28:12.:28:20.

very humid, the Swedes will rely on Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Heavily

:28:20.:28:24.

criticised in England, but playing in a deeper role these days.

:28:24.:28:28.

I saw him at Wembley earlier in the season, he is a good player. He

:28:29.:28:32.

understands his role in the team better at he is more of a team

:28:32.:28:36.

player now. Watch out for Yarmolenko on one

:28:36.:28:41.

side, a useful man with lots of pace. What did you think about

:28:41.:28:44.

England? We were very well-organised and can

:28:44.:28:53.

be happy with that. It was a credit -- Welbeck was a credit.

:28:53.:28:57.

A draw the best result England can hope for here?

:28:57.:29:01.

Yes, then moved towards the Swedish game.

:29:01.:29:06.

If Shevchenko is cause for Ukraine tonight, there will be a national

:29:06.:29:13.

holiday. It is a sensational atmosphere.

:29:13.:29:17.

You spend some time in Ukraine, Allen. What is it like out there,

:29:17.:29:23.

the atmosphere? I read that the Polish coach said

:29:23.:29:26.

that his team collapsed in the second half under the pressure from

:29:26.:29:31.

their home fans. If he thinks they are under pressure, he should visit

:29:31.:29:34.

to Ukraine and see the pressure they are under, because I fancied a

:29:35.:29:38.

great atmosphere, really happy and excited, wanting to get the

:29:38.:29:43.

football under way, but they are expectant.

:29:43.:29:46.

If I saw a great line from Oleh Blokhin, he does not want any

:29:46.:29:55.

donkey's! He is the Ukrainian Alan Hansen!

:29:55.:29:59.

They have got some pace up front we Shevchenko and Voronin. Against

:29:59.:30:06.

Mellberg. Sweden qualified as best runners up.

:30:06.:30:16.
:30:16.:30:21.

We played there host nation in the first game and that is always going

:30:21.:30:27.

to be tough considering the support that they have. It is a tough side

:30:27.:30:32.

with some skilful players but I think we are possibly at an equal

:30:32.:30:42.
:30:42.:30:52.

level circle be a tough game. -- so it will be a tough game. With his

:30:52.:30:59.

attitude and everything, he gives us a lot. When he gets the ball, he

:30:59.:31:05.

can turn and pined the small spaces between the midfield and the

:31:05.:31:11.

defensive line and we can push up the team. Everybody is hungry here.

:31:11.:31:15.

They want to do their best in French of the Swedish fans and in

:31:15.:31:25.
:31:25.:31:26.

front of the coach. -- in front off. We play every game to win. But

:31:26.:31:34.

first goal is to get past the group stage. The Swedish press describe

:31:34.:31:39.

their team as sexy but unreliable. Certainly looking forward to the

:31:39.:31:48.

game now! They play a very open game. They are attacking keep

:31:48.:31:55.

possession and get forward but they are not the greatest at the back.

:31:55.:32:00.

Mellberg getting on a bit. With that, you tend to get a really

:32:00.:32:04.

opening game, they create a lot of chances but give a lot of chances

:32:04.:32:13.

away. We always say that Ibrahimovic is slightly enigmatic.

:32:13.:32:19.

A do not think we can ever doubt his ability. He has a lot of polls

:32:19.:32:23.

in Italy it is a question more about the big game. He has got a

:32:23.:32:28.

lot of goals for his national team as well. The one thing you can

:32:28.:32:33.

doubt sometimes is his attitude. Back comes from the way he is, the

:32:33.:32:37.

way he jogs around, the perception is that he sometimes does not work

:32:37.:32:43.

as hard as he showed. But they will be relying on him, he is the God of

:32:43.:32:47.

their team, and did they are going to go further, he has to score and

:32:47.:32:51.

he has to perform. He is their talisman but interestingly they

:32:51.:32:56.

have a better record when he does play. There is another camp that

:32:56.:33:03.

says not convinced, and I would be in the latter! I am with Martin

:33:03.:33:09.

O'Neill, he doesn't like him either. As for Ukraine, they will be hoping

:33:09.:33:14.

to see the old Shevchenko. Actually, they would probably prefer begun

:33:14.:33:24.
:33:24.:33:26.

Shevchenko, but you know what I mean! Here is the man himself.

:33:26.:33:33.

Welcome to Kiev. Ukraine and Kiev is my home. It was my dream to

:33:33.:33:41.

finish my career here in Ukraine in my club, Dynamo Kiev, and the

:33:41.:33:46.

national team. I know that country did everything to make the

:33:46.:33:55.

competition to recurred. The stadium in Donetsk, and the stadium

:33:55.:34:02.

here, they tried to everything the best for Euro 2012. We have a very

:34:02.:34:11.

difficult group. European competition is different to the

:34:11.:34:18.

World Cup because in Europe there are so many good teams. I tried to

:34:18.:34:25.

do everything to be fed. I know I am not 25 or 23 years old and I

:34:25.:34:31.

have to do a lot of work to be fit for this big competition. If we are

:34:31.:34:38.

good enough to past the group, then it will make us stronger, give us

:34:38.:34:45.

more confidence, and you never know. For us it will be something

:34:45.:34:55.
:34:55.:34:57.

impossible, unbelievable, to win at the euro 2012. It kids a dream. --

:34:57.:35:07.
:35:07.:35:07.

it is a dream. You have to try. There he is, at the man himself. I

:35:07.:35:11.

tell you if he scores tonight, they bought named the whole country

:35:11.:35:20.

after him! He is their talisman. He nearly did not get into the squad.

:35:20.:35:26.

Blokhin said it was not about names. He has certainly lost his pace so

:35:26.:35:32.

he is now just averagely pace because it was electric!

:35:32.:35:38.

wonderfully gifted player in his prime. Such a nice guy as well. We

:35:38.:35:44.

did not see the best of him in this country. When he was in Milan he

:35:44.:35:50.

was sensational and he came to Chelsea, it was like he was pulling

:35:50.:35:55.

her train when he was running. I met him 10 months later and I felt

:35:55.:36:01.

really bad say it because he was such a nice guy. He is a legend in

:36:01.:36:05.

Ukraine. The if he had this thing go tonight, will you be nice about

:36:05.:36:12.

him? I'm always nice! Ukraine, we expect them to play on the counter

:36:12.:36:17.

attack. Yes, they get everybody behind the ball and they tend to

:36:17.:36:23.

try and break. They have pace on the wings. Yarmolenko is a decent

:36:23.:36:27.

player so they will try to hit Sweden on the break. Sweden are

:36:27.:36:31.

open to the counter attack so heavily there will be a few chances.

:36:31.:36:36.

How do you see this on panning out? What an incentive that is for both

:36:36.:36:41.

of them to win this game and set themselves up. They will have heard

:36:41.:36:46.

the result from France and England so they know that if they get a win

:36:46.:36:53.

here they are probably favourites to take second place. You watch the

:36:53.:36:59.

game, hoping for a draw. On paper, you would expect England to beat

:36:59.:37:04.

either of the sides. Looking at it, Ukraine, home advantage should help

:37:04.:37:11.

them. Again, it is whether you can handle it. The experience that we

:37:11.:37:16.

had in Euro 96 is that for two years you have not played any

:37:16.:37:19.

competitive games because your automatic qualifiers. You're

:37:19.:37:27.

desperate to get into the game. it to help or a hindrance? It can

:37:27.:37:31.

work as a bit of both. Friendly games are not the same as

:37:31.:37:34.

competitive games. It will be interesting to see how they start

:37:34.:37:42.

this game. Ukraine or Sweden for you, Lee? If they get off to a good

:37:42.:37:47.

start, I think Ukraine will beat Sweden, but Sweden can score from

:37:47.:37:52.

anywhere, so it should be high scoring, hopefully! This is the

:37:52.:37:55.

last game of the opening phase and if we have saved the best form last

:37:55.:38:05.
:38:05.:38:38.

is should be a very good game Our commentators in the Olympic

:38:38.:38:48.
:38:48.:38:50.

Stadium in Kiev R Martin Keown and absolutely throbbing at the end of

:38:50.:38:57.

a scorching hot summer day. The air heavy with national anticipation.

:38:57.:39:03.

The Olympic Stadium is where the competition comes alive for the

:39:03.:39:10.

host nation. Tonight the ordinary people of what is at complexity are

:39:10.:39:13.

determined to enjoy it there because day since the orange

:39:14.:39:21.

revolution eight years ago. Tonight, a vibrant place in Kiev, a place of

:39:21.:39:28.

hope and unity, in support of their national I can't, Blokhin, and his

:39:28.:39:35.

underrated team. There is Andrei Shevchenko. To many it was as

:39:35.:39:40.

surprised that he starts tonight but there is no bigger name in the

:39:40.:39:45.

Ukraine football than the man who was not successful at Chelsea after

:39:45.:39:55.
:39:55.:39:56.

his big-money move. But he has won 18 trophies in his career,

:39:56.:40:01.

including European Footballer of the Year. And there is Zlatan

:40:01.:40:08.

Ibrahimovic, so much depends for Sweden on their talismanic striker.

:40:08.:40:14.

They have nine players who were at Euro 2000 debate. Sweden are at

:40:14.:40:24.
:40:24.:40:25.

their 50 Championships, Ukraine have never played in the finals. --

:40:25.:40:34.

fifth. The game is as intriguing as this city itself. A draw would be

:40:34.:40:39.

the best result for Roy Hodgson, but as we heard Alan Shearer say,

:40:39.:40:43.

we are delving into the unknown a little bit with Ukraine because

:40:43.:40:48.

they have not played competitively for a couple of years. That is

:40:48.:40:55.

correct, they are an unknown quantity. We talk about them, but

:40:55.:40:58.

if they play anything like their near neighbours Russia, we will be

:40:58.:41:05.

in for quite a game tonight. When they step out underneath this

:41:05.:41:12.

remodelled main stand, you will here the noise. Everyone is wearing

:41:12.:41:20.

the yellow of Ukraine, the Yellow of Sweden. There is the Turkish

:41:20.:41:30.
:41:30.:41:34.

referee. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the teams!

:41:34.:41:39.

Shevchenko has waited so long for this moment. What a greeting for

:41:39.:41:49.
:41:49.:41:53.

him. Will he carried them main goal threat! -- will he carried the main

:41:53.:42:02.

goal Fred? They do have youngsters in the team as well. There are

:42:02.:42:08.

smiles on the faces of Swedish and Ukraine fans in the ground and

:42:08.:42:18.
:42:18.:42:31.

there have been on the streets, as nord.

expressive use coming through as well. He has blended them over to

:45:46.:45:56.

time there since the 3-3 draw in the first game in this stadium. In

:46:07.:46:15.

the wide men there are the two to watch, from Dino Kiev, real flyers.

:46:15.:46:23.

-- Dynamo Kyiv. The referee is a Turkish insurance

:46:23.:46:27.

salesman, responsible for sending off John Terry in Barcelona, and

:46:27.:46:36.

has also sent off Mario Balotelli. And there is the in it -- enigmatic

:46:36.:46:40.

as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, relishing his more creative role this year

:46:40.:46:47.

for Sweden, he has thrived plane behind Johan Elmander, but he or

:46:47.:46:54.

will not play today. Sweden have recalled Markus Rosenberg. He has

:46:54.:47:03.

not scored since 2007. Or Andreas Isaksson, once of Manchester City,

:47:03.:47:12.

cannot look dodgy on crosses. -- at Andreas Isaksson. Mellberg will

:47:12.:47:19.

miss his regular partner. Elma is the biggest talent since

:47:19.:47:27.

Ibrahimovic according to his manager. -- Rasmus Elm. Shevchenko

:47:27.:47:32.

may not last the 90 minutes, he is not expected to play all three of

:47:32.:47:37.

their games. They may call on Devych if they needed goal, he is a

:47:37.:47:47.
:47:47.:47:51.

poacher. Two very good goalscorers at club level, one has a proven

:47:51.:47:56.

record at international level, Ibrahimovic, though, his 31 goals

:47:56.:48:01.

for his country, only four have come against top 10 international

:48:01.:48:10.

side. It will be Sweden in their change strip who will pick us off

:48:11.:48:16.

and get us under way, and we saw in Poland's opening game, a great

:48:16.:48:19.

start by the host nation, and then the emotion got to them and they

:48:19.:48:25.

trained a little bit. They allowed Greece, with ten men, back into the

:48:25.:48:30.

game. I do not know if we will see the same from Ukraine. They have

:48:30.:48:40.

all heads in their. -- old heads. What a change in this stadium in

:48:40.:48:44.

the years. What a change in the City over the years, and we are

:48:44.:48:54.
:48:54.:49:31.

He played in the 2006 World Cup, Ukraine got past Switzerland after

:49:31.:49:39.

a dreadful game. They were beaten in the quarter-finals. Dennis Oleh

:49:39.:49:49.
:49:49.:49:51.

Blokhin, played for the USSR and scored 42 goals. They have had a

:49:51.:50:01.
:50:01.:50:11.

chaotic build up to these finals. scored against them are in 2009 in

:50:11.:50:21.
:50:21.:50:36.

Kyiv centre-backs together. Ukraine football is split between Kiev

:50:36.:50:43.

followers and those of Shakhtar Donetsk. They won the double this

:50:43.:50:49.

season. The players have not been friends are -- over the last few

:50:49.:50:59.
:50:59.:51:14.

team, Ibrahimovic will play slightly deeper. He likes a

:51:14.:51:18.

slightly differently in this Swedish set up.

:51:18.:51:23.

A very different start to how Poland started in their game. I

:51:23.:51:27.

tried to convey how warm it is, I think we will see a progressive

:51:27.:51:36.

game from the host nation. Rasmus Elm is playing in a deeper role to

:51:36.:51:46.
:51:46.:52:03.

the one we thought he might because he had a spell there. Voronin, his

:52:03.:52:13.
:52:13.:52:36.

these days. They did well in Russia this season. The left-back has

:52:36.:52:45.

really come through this season. A little tester from range. The

:52:46.:52:49.

good ability, not frightened to shoot from distance, selling, but

:52:50.:52:58.

that wildly hit. That was Konoplyanka.

:52:58.:53:05.

He played against Fulham in the Europa League. Scored nine goals

:53:05.:53:15.
:53:15.:53:18.

this season for his club. A slightly optimistic attend their

:53:18.:53:26.

by Kim Kallstrom. Certainly was. He can really hit

:53:26.:53:30.

them from distance, had it might be something he is looking to do early

:53:30.:53:37.

An experienced player, his 4th tournament, always has a quick left

:53:37.:53:43.

foot. -- a good left foot. He plays for Olympique Lyonnais is, and will

:53:43.:53:53.
:53:53.:54:09.

pass beautifully from a defensive Ibrahimovic's performance and that

:54:09.:54:15.

of Sweden in Croatia in February was described by a former

:54:15.:54:18.

international as their best performance in a decade. When you

:54:18.:54:22.

think of the team that played in England earlier in the season, they

:54:22.:54:26.

were woeful, lacking in ideas, and it was that performance that

:54:26.:54:35.

persuaded them to change things. They all know their roles in the

:54:35.:54:40.

team, Ibrahimovic has become a much better team player now. He

:54:41.:54:50.

recognises his responsibilities. That was a difficult ball for

:54:50.:55:00.
:55:00.:55:19.

Khacheridi, but he got back. Lustig this season because of a

:55:19.:55:29.
:55:29.:55:38.

wants to drift in from the line. We have not seen Shevchenko in the

:55:38.:55:43.

game yet. He took my breath away when I played against him in 1999.

:55:43.:55:46.

It would be interesting if he can recapture some of that tonight,

:55:46.:55:52.

just as some of that may be enough. To think Arsenal would have beaten

:55:52.:55:56.

Dynamo Kyiv that day if you have played at Highbury?

:55:56.:56:00.

Yes, we played at Wembley, had it felt like every game was an away

:56:00.:56:07.

game. Playing on your shoulder the whole time, his pace was phenomenal.

:56:07.:56:14.

He is conserving energy and waiting for an opportunity at the moment.

:56:14.:56:19.

Erik Hamren is back in charge, six wins from his 13 games in charge so

:56:19.:56:28.

far. Ukraine have always had great footballers. Eight of the Soviet

:56:28.:56:36.

team that got to the final in 1988 were from Ukraine. The coach was

:56:36.:56:40.

one of the all-time greats, took almost the entire Dynamo Kyiv team

:56:40.:56:47.

to that squad -- to that tournament. Tymoshchuk is playing further

:56:47.:56:57.
:56:57.:57:03.

forward for his country than he ball, they are very comfortable in

:57:03.:57:08.

possession. But he has just retired to Mellberg back there.

:57:08.:57:12.

Between them, those two have 220 caps.

:57:12.:57:19.

While! You have to respect Mellberg, the number of competitions he has

:57:19.:57:29.
:57:29.:57:58.

thought he might. Four goals in his last six starts. Tina Shick has

:57:58.:58:02.

been detailed to watch a Zlatan Ibrahimovic, that is clear. --

:58:02.:58:12.
:58:12.:58:14.

Tymoshchuk. He has made over 100 appearances for his country.

:58:14.:58:18.

I have sympathy for him there. I thought he got hold of the ball.

:58:19.:58:28.
:58:29.:59:01.

quality from those areas. Swedish fans appealing very hopefully for a

:59:01.:59:11.
:59:11.:59:34.

penalty. The first yellow card, and the referee. The Ukrainians were on

:59:34.:59:44.
:59:44.:59:56.

in the European Under 21 Championship in 2006. The Ukrainian

:59:56.:00:06.
:00:06.:00:09.

team, that is. This is Ukraine's first competitive

:00:09.:00:13.

international since 2009, when they lost to Greece in a World Cup

:00:13.:00:23.
:00:23.:00:23.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 57 seconds

:00:23.:01:17.

the Dina Meyer Kiev players. -- temperament of Khacheridi, who can

:01:17.:01:27.
:01:27.:01:41.

crones and whistles, just starting poor stock at the moment, and

:01:41.:01:45.

Sweden are nice and compact. But I think the football will come from

:01:45.:01:53.

Ukraine. Just a little bit of tension in the players early on.

:01:53.:02:00.

There is pressure on Ukraine to reach the quarter-finals at least,

:02:00.:02:10.
:02:10.:02:10.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 57 seconds

:02:10.:02:57.

Ibrahimovic. He is certainly a big boy and that is an area where they

:02:57.:03:03.

will need to improve. We serve an earlier -- we saw an earlier one

:03:03.:03:13.
:03:13.:03:34.

from Larsson, and it went out as brave. The book came up from

:03:34.:03:44.

most of his players are home-based. bounced off and very nearly went in.

:05:06.:05:11.

Ibrahimovic it reminded me their of Eric Cantona, that upright figure

:05:11.:05:17.

and the way he put a foot on the ball. It created panic and the

:05:17.:05:27.
:05:27.:05:45.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 57 seconds

:09:13.:10:26.

class. He looks much better than left-hand side but they did not use

:10:26.:10:36.

him. Ibrahimovic is a safe pair of hands, so they play the ball into

on the last defender, he can punish have lifted the roof off. It was

:11:41.:11:46.

not to be. Just could not get that power in his shot. His manager

:11:46.:11:51.

knows it was a chance. He is the player that they want the chance to

:11:51.:11:58.

fall to, just not able to convert it. It was a good build up. That is

:11:58.:12:02.

what he is interested in, getting in behind the last defender. It is

:12:02.:12:11.

a very difficult angle and he sends it wide. He was nursed through the

:12:11.:12:17.

club's season and by his national manager as well. He has been

:12:17.:12:27.
:12:27.:12:59.

football, including European He is holding the back of his clive.

:12:59.:13:09.

Chelsea but he still scored 22 goals for them. He had three

:13:22.:13:29.

operations and it just hampered him. When he got going each time, it

:13:29.:13:34.

stopped him. He was a truly outstanding player in his day. I

from Voronin. He starts the movement from way back but just

:14:25.:14:33.

could not get there. He has been an international for 10 years but only

has eight goals in that time, he has had to play a supporting role

They are very strong out wide, the Ukrainians. Lots of pace.

:17:05.:17:15.
:17:15.:17:27.

Lustig played every minute of experts, but that is straight to

:17:27.:17:31.

Isaksson. Some of the free kicks tonight have

:17:31.:17:38.

not been the best. He was the man in the Manchester

goalkeeper, who does not look convincing.

:19:05.:19:11.

He has turned very quickly, and it is worth a pop. Does not really get

:19:11.:19:20.

hold of it. Beekeeper break -- keeper makes a real meal of that.

:19:20.:19:23.

I remember Pyatov playing against Barcelona in a Champions League

:19:23.:19:33.

game when he was awful a few years the last Graf once, only three

:19:59.:20:08.

starters from the team that played Sweden last August in a friendly. -

:20:08.:20:15.

- the last 12 months. Yarmolenko has been quiet so far.

:20:15.:20:20.

He looks like a good player, though. Watch for him drifting in on his

:20:20.:20:30.
:20:30.:20:39.

the centre will pop -- centre of the pitch, Nazarenko not getting on

:20:39.:20:49.
:20:49.:21:14.

the ball as much as they walked Olsson made a real meal of that,

:21:14.:21:21.

and the referee has got that one wrong. He gets to the ball first,

:21:21.:21:29.

and then runs into him. Ibrahimovic is not getting

:21:29.:21:33.

treatment, he has just had some new laces for those heavily endorsed

:21:33.:21:37.

boots. Part of the sponsorship deal that

:21:37.:21:42.

he comes across to the side of the pitch!

:21:42.:21:49.

What would you make of a defender - - a striker who wore pink boots?

:21:49.:21:59.
:21:59.:22:11.

I wore red ones and got away with sometimes in games, he has got to

:22:11.:22:17.

go and get that ball. A fantastic season for Milan, 35

:22:17.:22:22.

goals, his best season. He was the top scorer in Italy.

:22:22.:22:32.
:22:32.:22:47.

United out there. There seems to be no problem with the Shakhtar

:22:47.:22:50.

Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv players, although they had a fight in the

:22:50.:22:56.

tunnel when the two teams played against each other. The coach seems

:22:56.:23:05.

to have sorted it all out. Ukraine having more of the ball.

:23:05.:23:13.

They seemed very structured. I want to see some individuality.

:23:13.:23:19.

The keeper seemed to to get that all wrong.

:23:19.:23:29.
:23:29.:23:50.

We got a little bit of imagination checked back on to his right foot.

already that he can come in off the left-hand side, on to his right

:24:55.:25:01.

hand side. Konoplyanka. They are so rigid, and I think if he looks more

:25:01.:25:08.

then he can be a real danger. He did not match his but erratic

:25:08.:25:18.

enough. His club rate him and �50 million.

:25:18.:25:28.
:25:28.:25:52.

He plays in a more central role smothered by the keeper. A nation

:25:52.:26:00.

waited, and de Gaulle did not come. Yarmolenko trying to finish off a

:26:00.:26:10.
:26:10.:26:29.

a few things, he has not been a regular player for his club.

:26:29.:26:38.

He has got to do better with his cross there. We know Voronin has

:26:38.:26:45.

had his ponytail cut off, but he looks like a great player.

:26:45.:26:51.

He has never played club football in Ukraine. Played all his

:26:51.:27:01.
:27:01.:27:01.

professional football in Germany. Oh, dear, oh, dear! Just a lazy

:27:01.:27:11.

back-pass. Ibrahimovic hit the post, the

:27:11.:27:16.

keeper looked at the defence who were nowhere.

:27:16.:27:21.

He has got time and space. He picked his spot and unfortunately

:27:21.:27:28.

put it wide. He should be burying that. That is how you Markell to

tonight it is virtually curtains how organised a park, it really

working hard for one another. -- Chances are few and far between.

:34:57.:35:07.
:35:07.:35:10.

I said before have this was done last game of the first phase and if

:35:10.:35:14.

it was going to be the best game we had seen he would have to be quite

:35:14.:35:21.

something. It was not! The first half was a bit of a non-event. It

:35:21.:35:31.
:35:31.:35:31.

livened up in the final 15 minutes. Early on, Sweden defended the 18

:35:31.:35:39.

yard line very well, St Ewe Ukraine, come on and try to beat us. Then

:35:39.:35:44.

they decided to defend higher up the pitch. When you get that right

:35:44.:35:49.

it looks easy, when you get it wrong, you are in big trouble. Once

:35:49.:35:56.

they started to that, Voronin got in, and Shevchenko had possibly the

:35:56.:36:05.

best chance of the half. Overall, there seems to be a lack of quality

:36:05.:36:13.

from both teams. I would agree with you. When they increased the

:36:13.:36:17.

tournament to another few teams in four years, this will be the

:36:17.:36:25.

question. It is quite clear to see that, ability wise, it is not as

:36:25.:36:30.

good for as interesting as we have seen. Not necessarily bad news for

:36:30.:36:35.

England. Very good news for England. The guys will have nothing to fear

:36:36.:36:39.

watching these two teams in the first half. But they should have

:36:39.:36:46.

been a goal at either end. Leak, it did not quite turn out how eight

:36:47.:36:54.

you thought it would be because Sweden generally play quite open.

:36:54.:37:04.
:37:04.:37:07.

Exactly. They caught Ukraine by are not bothered. It is the

:37:07.:37:11.

opposite of what we thought. The pressure is on Ukraine to go

:37:11.:37:15.

forward, the crowd want them to go for it, and that is not their

:37:15.:37:21.

normal game. Sweden changed after 15 minutes and started to play are

:37:21.:37:27.

high line. It is a good line but there is no pressure on the ball.

:37:27.:37:32.

Shevchenko is just off side and they get that right. But we have

:37:32.:37:38.

seen time and time again, you get it partially wrong, and you are in

:37:38.:37:48.
:37:48.:37:52.

trouble. Mellberg was terrific. should have scored there. He gets

:37:52.:38:01.

in because of the line, because Sweden did better when everything

:38:01.:38:06.

was in front of them. Now the ball is go behind the man runners are

:38:06.:38:13.

going behind them and they look on the ball. It was interesting how

:38:13.:38:18.

things change. I presume they came from the coach. You get more

:38:18.:38:25.

confident and you think you can push up the pitch. Shevchenko, the

:38:25.:38:28.

first 50 minutes, they did not think he was playing because he did

:38:29.:38:34.

not touch the ball. Ibrahimovic, we always have a debate about him!

:38:35.:38:44.
:38:45.:38:45.

Anything remotely dangers, he has been part of. He is the focal point

:38:45.:38:55.
:38:55.:38:58.

What the goalkeeper it -- what the goalkeeper is doing, I am not quite

:38:58.:39:08.
:39:08.:39:08.

sure. Most good things that have happened for Sweden, he is the one

:39:08.:39:18.
:39:18.:39:19.

threat. But this is the infuriating part of him. He pulls off his man

:39:19.:39:28.

at the far post. It was like the one we saw for Germany but he did

:39:28.:39:38.
:39:38.:39:38.

How do you see this changing in the second half? Both sides, England

:39:38.:39:46.

and France, coming up, they must be thinking we have to win this.

:39:46.:39:50.

team should win this. Could they come and have a go and take their

:39:50.:39:54.

chances that they will win. They look a bit anxious when they get in

:39:54.:40:00.

front of goal because they know what the win means for them. If he

:40:00.:40:05.

did come in late and missed England against France, here is a brief

:40:05.:40:15.
:40:15.:40:39.

could not get himself adjusted to lead! It is a great ball in but

there is only England that want to Reddy could stop by Mexes. -- from

:42:06.:42:16.
:42:16.:42:17.

It is a good start, we would like to have won. We sat back a bit

:42:17.:42:22.

which was a bit silly of us but we dug in and got the result. What

:42:22.:42:29.

about the goal? He hit it well, it was through a lot of bodies. I like

:42:29.:42:36.

to save everything, but not that one. Did you see it? Not very well!

:42:36.:42:43.

That is football, there are bodies in the way. You do your best but

:42:43.:42:47.

unfortunately it went in. He beat Joe Hart from 20 yards, had he

:42:47.:42:54.

teased him about it yet? A little bit! I know that he knows me in

:42:54.:43:00.

training when I shoot so instead of opening my foot by a cold it in the

:43:00.:43:05.

first post and he was a little bit surprised, so I am really happy

:43:05.:43:11.

that I scored. When I come back I can tease him! What about Roy

:43:11.:43:21.

Hodgson and what he said to you? Is he pleased? Definitely. We showed

:43:21.:43:28.

quality at certain times and our organisation is there. When did you

:43:28.:43:34.

decide to play Oxlade-Chamberlain? Fairly early on. He has been

:43:34.:43:37.

extremely good in training and he is the type of player that I

:43:37.:43:41.

thought might just get away from them in midfield, as he did on

:43:41.:43:45.

three occasions, but he got brought down. Had he been allowed to

:43:45.:43:50.

continue he might have put a pass in. It was a massive honour for me

:43:50.:43:55.

to go out there today, to see all the travelling England fans, and

:43:55.:43:58.

you realise you're playing in the European finals tournament. When

:43:58.:44:05.

did you find out you were starting? This afternoon. That late?

:44:05.:44:08.

Sometimes the boss tells you the team before, today it was on the

:44:08.:44:14.

day. You have to always prepare and be ready. It was important not to

:44:14.:44:19.

lose. Is this in you England we are seeing? I think so, it was clear to

:44:19.:44:25.

see that we were tactically aware against a very good team which has

:44:25.:44:30.

a free shape and they play with lot of players in and around two. But

:44:30.:44:36.

we stayed disciplined and at times we had a little bit more composure.

:44:36.:44:41.

We need to build on this now and stay positive. What changes now

:44:41.:44:46.

between this game and Sweden? have to rest, I think you saw there

:44:46.:44:50.

were some tired bodies out there and it is very hard. I do not think

:44:50.:44:55.

anybody expected that when Ukraine and Poland were announced. I think

:44:55.:45:00.

the lads have to recover and dig deep and then we have to score some

:45:00.:45:05.

goals. Not quite there when we were discussing the other day, but does

:45:05.:45:09.

that draw goes some way to addressing the disappointment of

:45:09.:45:15.

the defeat in 2004? Yes, of course. We do not look back as players, we

:45:15.:45:19.

look forward. It is any good tonight if we go on to get the

:45:19.:45:24.

points that we need to get out of the group. There is still lots of

:45:24.:45:28.

hard work to do and we will analyse this game, where we have gone wrong,

:45:28.:45:32.

what we did right, and we will go into Sweden all recovered from

:45:32.:45:42.
:45:42.:46:02.

All of our live matches and highlight programmes are available

:46:02.:46:09.

on the iPlayer. Now a alternative view with Chris pop -- Chris Waddle.

:46:09.:46:13.

What did you make of the performance?

:46:13.:46:17.

I thought it was genuine, honest, they defended very well. Perhaps

:46:17.:46:22.

they kept their shape too well at times. We were hard to beat. The

:46:22.:46:26.

ideal scenario is the counter- attack as the set piece, where we

:46:26.:46:30.

got one with a great ball in from Steven Gerrard. Apart from that, we

:46:30.:46:34.

still do not seem to create enough when we have the ball, we give it

:46:34.:46:39.

away cheaply, we need one or two players to come around a bit more

:46:39.:46:44.

and ask questions of the other team. We have got those players, but they

:46:44.:46:50.

are not just -- just not doing it? James Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain,

:46:50.:46:55.

they can do that. Babel drift inside and look for the poor, and

:46:55.:47:03.

that is what you want, clever players, Paul, like France had. --

:47:03.:47:08.

clever players on the ball. The first 15 minutes, it was like a

:47:08.:47:12.

practice match because there was so much respect. All of a sudden,

:47:12.:47:17.

England scored, France show what they have got. They are over 20

:47:17.:47:23.

games unbeaten and you can say what -- see why. If you are going to

:47:23.:47:27.

criticise France, they do not get enough bodies in a box. There were

:47:27.:47:32.

three players who they lead to what they want.

:47:32.:47:37.

France irate Dog course. England matched them, so our expectations

:47:37.:47:41.

now growing for the chances in the tournament?

:47:41.:47:50.

I hope not. I hope people realise that the younger players are coming

:47:50.:47:54.

in, had Roy Hodgson should be looking to think that we need to

:47:54.:48:01.

qualify for the next World Cup, and I would be looking to the European

:48:01.:48:06.

Championships in four years to see what we could do. Maybe then we can

:48:06.:48:10.

get a side together to challenge. He has done the basics, we are hard

:48:10.:48:16.

to beat, then you can take the next step.

:48:16.:48:20.

Interesting points made in terms of flexibility, letting players wander

:48:20.:48:26.

around. It is hard to do it within that 4-4-2 system, isn't it?

:48:27.:48:31.

Yes, it is quite rigid, and you do suffer from that. You also need the

:48:32.:48:37.

players to do that. They could do with a Chris Waddle!

:48:37.:48:44.

Yes, a free spirit, someone who can hurt the opposition. I feel that

:48:44.:48:49.

when we played 4420, that it is a little bit Brighid, and I would

:48:49.:48:59.
:48:59.:49:04.

like to see something a bit different. -- when we play 4-4-2.

:49:04.:49:07.

we're not that good at keeping the ball, but we have to take positive

:49:07.:49:12.

spot stop we heard how great France have been, we matched them today.

:49:12.:49:16.

That was a positive. A negative would be the lack of chances we

:49:16.:49:20.

created. You have to go with the positives

:49:20.:49:24.

and a word of praise for the manager. I thought he said the team

:49:24.:49:28.

up 12 and he is renowned for being negative, I thought England were

:49:28.:49:33.

positive. Well back had a lot of pace and movement, and conceivably,

:49:33.:49:39.

it could have been over. Do you think France are possible

:49:39.:49:45.

winners? No, not with those centre-backs.

:49:45.:49:49.

A positive for England is this game, there is nothing to fear from these

:49:49.:49:57.

two teams. It didn't play like that in the

:49:57.:50:01.

next two matches, they will qualify for the quarter-finals.

:50:01.:50:06.

Where do you see this were going? Either team can win this, the game

:50:06.:50:10.

is wide-open. Do you expect to Sweden to come out

:50:10.:50:15.

a bit more? Yes, I think with their new manager,

:50:15.:50:20.

they will come out to win it. Ibrahimovic is the one.

:50:20.:50:24.

Shevchenko may still have a part to play.

:50:24.:50:30.

They are ready for the second half. Jonathan Pearce and Martin Keown

:50:30.:50:40.
:50:40.:50:44.

surprise that Shevchenko is starting the second half of all

:50:44.:50:52.

stop there was an opinion that they were change him. -- there was an

:50:52.:50:57.

opinion that they would change him. They are chained -- sticking with

the starting 11 it for now. He has encouraged a more attacking Swedish

:51:15.:51:46.

bit, the humidity has dropped as the end of that cross, but it was

:51:46.:51:54.

taken away. Sweden have lacked some creativity by playing Rasmus Elm in

:51:54.:52:04.
:52:04.:52:38.

gets what in the face but goes than Yarmolenko has been disappointing,

:52:38.:52:48.
:52:48.:52:55.

for periods of the game. Only seven of the Swedish squad play in major

:52:55.:53:05.
:53:05.:53:05.

European leagues. Ukraine have not beaten the better sides in their

:53:05.:53:12.

build up. Several of their opponents have played them in the

:53:12.:53:22.
:53:22.:53:35.

last couple of years, and they have and I tend to agree bit Sebastian

:53:35.:53:45.
:53:45.:54:07.

Larsson. -- I tend to agree or with midfield. The referee says play on,

:54:07.:54:17.
:54:17.:54:19.

an opportunity perhaps? A good defensive block.

:54:19.:54:29.
:54:29.:54:31.

It certainly was. Pyatov came, but he did not look

:54:31.:54:41.
:54:41.:54:52.

whistles of derision for Granqvist's challenge on a national

:54:53.:55:00.

hero. Great defending in their from

:55:10.:55:11.

Sweden. -- from Ukraine. Defenders do not get enough credit for that.

:55:11.:55:21.
:55:21.:55:36.

I wonder if that is the Shevchenko bench as a coach. He was in charge

:55:36.:55:46.
:55:46.:56:00.

of the senior squad for a while, back on the field of play. There is

:56:00.:56:07.

a lot to smile about in this city, a wide brim of Bart's and cafes. I

come to the rescue tonight. He is lethal. Just a tap-in, but he has

:57:31.:57:37.

got to be there to do it. Ukraine will protest, because one

Yes, he has got to be better than that. Suicidal defending.

Four in four games for Ibrahimovic. No one has scored more in the

European Championships for Sweden than him. A new record for his

country. Then again, it was only That was a bit more purposeful from

Shevchuk on the bench. Shevchenko! What a moment! National treasure.

:00:58.:00:59.

National jubilation. Superbly. Cometh the hour, cometh the man. He

:00:59.:01:06.

has waited for this moment all of his life. Great movement of the

:01:06.:01:16.
:01:16.:01:19.

ball. Good build up on the right- hand side. Look at the movement. He

:01:19.:01:29.

is first to the ball. He embarrasses the defender. His 47th

:01:29.:01:39.
:01:39.:01:49.

Col for Ukraine will be the one Shevchenko paid off. The two main

strikers that we spoke about most before the game have scored.

:01:59.:02:09.
:02:09.:02:14.

just before that, Ukraine were all Ukraine this season, ahead of this

:02:14.:02:20.

game. The longest serving international footballer in this

:02:20.:02:30.
:02:30.:02:31.

tournament. He made his debut 17 years ago. A wonderful moment.

Ukraine after they went behind. We are seeing the best from them. It

took the Swedish goal to bring the absolutely incredible. Such a

sloppy goal to concede. He is the man on fire. It is his movement

For Ukraine's record goalscorer. They prepared him well, the manager

:08:10.:08:20.

Sweden, apart from the odd moment from Ibrahimovic, have shown

nothing to worry England or, indeed, of the host nation with their

Ibrahimovic. I think Ibrahimovic just senses a weakness in

:12:21.:12:30.
:12:31.:12:52.

Khacheridi and is trying to bully position. He has worked hard.

the moment, it is a perfect evening for Ukraine football, but there is

finals but to not keep calm and impress. They have not won a

tournament knockout match since 1994 in the United States. The onus

is on them to get back into this match or they are not going to be

You have one player marking and one in the space, and they did not do

was down. Just too much on that ball from

would have started, because for hitting Voronin on the back of

the head. He does not think he did much wrong.

:17:51.:17:59.

It looks as if he has just gone up for it, but no, he has hit him. The

:17:59.:18:08.

referee was right. A remarkable character, Mellberg.

He has not missed a minute in six tournament files for Sweden. --

England, but if Ukraine do get on a roll, the last game in the group

:20:01.:20:08.

against England in Donetsk will be a tough task for Roy Hodgson's boys,

:20:08.:20:12.

because the national fervour here will have really built up.

:20:12.:20:17.

It certainly will. If Shevchenko is in this kind of form, it will be

:20:17.:20:27.
:20:27.:20:30.

tough for us. Oleh Blokhin is a fiery sort of character. He scored

You talk about turning a tap on and off, he seems to come alive. He hit

night of Ukraine. 2-One winners. -- Wonderful scenes and what a story!

:41:33.:41:38.

The story is the best ever. You could argue that Sweden deserve to

:41:38.:41:43.

get a draw but Shevchenko missed a chance in the first half and then

:41:43.:41:48.

the long and illustrious career he has had, this must be one of the

:41:48.:41:56.

highlights. Not only scoring two goals but two sensational once.

:41:56.:42:03.

the latter stage of my career, Bobby Robson said played the width

:42:03.:42:09.

of the 18 yard box. Shevchenko has obviously been told the same thing.

:42:09.:42:16.

My whole career there! Two great goals. We said at half-time it is

:42:16.:42:21.

going to be about Ibrahimovic or Shevchenko or both of them and the

:42:21.:42:26.

second half was exactly that. They both had chances and in the end, it

:42:26.:42:32.

Shevchenko was not a national hero before, he certainly is now. A to

:42:32.:42:39.

be perfectly obvious, the Shevchenko Stadium has never seen

:42:39.:42:49.
:42:49.:42:55.

the ball off but his movement, and I am screaming out, get in the box.

:42:55.:43:00.

He has a little job there, does not get in, but he gets in for the

:43:00.:43:06.

second one. He smells danger. He is in the right place at the right

:43:06.:43:15.

time and it is a lovely finish. is a deft finish. You did not like

:43:15.:43:25.
:43:25.:43:28.

The rest will be written in folklore forever. Great movement.

:43:28.:43:33.

Any kids watching as a centre- forward. It is about a winner, just

:43:33.:43:38.

get the ball in the box and let us get on the end of it. He cannot run

:43:38.:43:48.
:43:48.:43:55.

over 25 yards but he can run over from the point of view of the

:43:55.:43:59.

defender, Mellberg has to be over by to Michael three yards just to

:43:59.:44:09.
:44:09.:44:10.

stop the run. He does not. They say you should always be on your toes.

:44:10.:44:16.

He was on his heels. That is the split-second that allows Shevchenko

:44:16.:44:23.

to make the run and get in front. The header is phenomenal. He has

:44:23.:44:33.
:44:33.:44:36.

attacked it and Shearer would have about wingers picking forwards out,

:44:36.:44:41.

it is not, it is about forwards getting in the danger area and

:44:41.:44:48.

gambling. Then he did it again. Again, it is poor defending but

:44:48.:44:56.

look at his movement again. He just gets in front and gambles. It is

:44:57.:45:05.

like Hide and Seek. We always said if you're going to depend a corner

:45:05.:45:09.

do not have the centre court in this area trying to defend it. The

:45:09.:45:14.

body position of Ibrahimovic is all over it. Yes, it is a great run,

:45:14.:45:24.
:45:24.:45:32.

and the guy on the post, what is he which he fully deserved. A national

:45:32.:45:42.
:45:42.:45:44.

The encouraging for me is that in this tournament, centre-forwards

:45:44.:45:50.

are seeing a lot of crosses coming into the box. Ibrahimovic has

:45:50.:45:56.

caught tonight, Lescott scored earlier on the. We see said Chen

:45:56.:46:00.

could there. It is great for for words.

:46:00.:46:07.

Sweden had chances at the end. One particular effort from Ibrahimovic.

:46:07.:46:15.

-- Shevchenko. It is it really good save by the

:46:15.:46:25.
:46:25.:46:37.

keeper, because when he hits it, over the goalkeeper. I am not a

:46:37.:46:42.

centre forward, but you need to be more delicate.

:46:42.:46:46.

It is Mellberg at the end, they have pushed him forward. He does

:46:46.:46:53.

well to connect with it, but it is a difficult chance. We are all

:46:53.:46:57.

England fans, except for Allen, and you have to take encouragement from

:46:57.:47:01.

what we have seen tonight. If you keep Ibrahimovic quiet, I think

:47:01.:47:11.
:47:11.:47:34.

there is a great chance for us to We can go to the Fan Mile and to

join the Jake Humphrey. What is it like there?

:47:44.:47:48.

Battered Chiswick revise the fact that Ukraine have won their first

:47:48.:47:52.

ever match at the European Championship. Since independence in

:47:52.:47:56.

1991, the team have not qualified for this to championship, so this

:47:56.:48:02.

is history. Ukraine fans cheering on their team at this tournament

:48:02.:48:08.

for the first time. We were joking that baby named his place after a

happen tonight. This is the moment that he scored the winning goal.

:48:20.:48:26.

What a truly remarkable light. A special night for everybody here. I

:48:26.:48:30.

guess they are off to drink the local brew. They will be drinking

:48:31.:48:34.

that late into the night. Considering the circumstances, it

:48:34.:48:38.

would be rude not to join them. A remarkable, historic night in the

:48:38.:48:48.

middle of Kiev. It is great for the nation's

:48:48.:48:52.

hosting. Both teams are pretty weak on the world rankings, but they

:48:52.:48:57.

have done in it -- coming and it lifts the tournament.

:48:57.:49:02.

The fans did really well, it was all yellow in the stadium with

:49:02.:49:07.

Sweden and the Ukraine fans, and it was a great atmosphere, it started

:49:07.:49:12.

slow. It turned into one of the best games so far, it had to do

everything, to a presenter forwards battling against each other, Mr

:49:17.:49:23.

Shevchenko coming out on top. England will take the nervous this

:49:23.:49:28.

out of things by beating Sweden. This makes it more difficult for

:49:28.:49:32.

England, because Ukraine now know that whatever happens in their

:49:32.:49:39.

second game, if they beat England, they can go through.

:49:39.:49:44.

Looking at the performances tonight, you would not be fearing them. If

:49:44.:49:48.

you play anything like you did today against France, I think they

:49:48.:49:53.

will beat either side. BAFTA Shevchenko, all credit to him. When

:49:53.:49:57.

he left Chelsea, we thought we would never see him again. He has

:49:57.:50:02.

scored two goals tonight and has given the tournament a lift.

:50:02.:50:07.

He has played the last two seasons to get into this tournament, and he

:50:07.:50:12.

could retire after this. There is hope for Fernando Torres

:50:12.:50:17.

yet! Let's take you back to England versus France, which kicked off

:50:17.:50:26.

five hours ago. A new tournament, a new England.

:50:26.:50:36.
:50:36.:50:50.

They have not won their opening that was wide.

:50:50.:50:55.

None a could not get himself adjusted to put it into the centre.

:50:55.:51:05.
:51:05.:51:21.

England the lead!. Easy as you like. A great ball in, but it is only

:51:21.:51:27.

England attacking it. Not offside. It is a good header, than were

:51:27.:51:32.

thrust on it, but perfect delivery, nobody from the French team

:51:32.:51:42.
:51:42.:52:21.

past Joe Hart in a flash. That was a cracker.

:52:21.:52:25.

England are too deep, almost on the penalty spot. A perfect finish,

:52:25.:52:30.

mind. The accuracy, power, pace, it was

:52:30.:52:40.
:52:40.:53:18.

near post, it did not quite go behind. It is deflected behind, and

:53:18.:53:26.

that might have been a vital touch on Danny Welbeck. -- from Danny

:53:27.:53:36.
:53:37.:53:43.

Wayne Rooney was instinctively try to put that in from his seat in the

:53:43.:53:52.

stand. Hart had to save it. You got the feeling there was going to be

:53:52.:53:59.

one more shot. That will do it for England. Two years ago in South

:53:59.:54:05.

Africa, they started with a draw, a very different, two years on. In

:54:05.:54:11.

good book consider this job done. They have got a 1-1 draw from their

:54:11.:54:21.
:54:21.:54:21.

Steven Gerrard put a great ball in for Lescott's first goal?

:54:21.:54:25.

Yes, it was a great ball, and I think we were looking quite good.

:54:25.:54:28.

They had a good spell which led to the goal.

:54:28.:54:32.

It was a massive honour for me to get out there and see all the

:54:32.:54:36.

travelling fans, and realise you are playing in the European finals,

:54:36.:54:40.

so I was delighted. Is this a new England we are

:54:40.:54:43.

seeing? We were very tactically aware

:54:43.:54:48.

against a very good team, and they really have a free shape and

:54:48.:54:52.

planeloads of players around you, so it was difficult at times. We

:54:52.:54:58.

stayed disciplined, and we had a bit more composure at times. Like I

:54:58.:55:03.

said, we need to build on this now and stay positive.

:55:03.:55:09.

It is a progression and we are unbeaten. We showed quality at

:55:09.:55:13.

times and our organisation was there.

:55:13.:55:16.

What do you need to change between now and Sweden?

:55:16.:55:21.

We need to rest, it is very hot. I do not think anyone expected that

:55:21.:55:26.

when Ukraine and Poland were announced as the hosts. It is warm

:55:26.:55:31.

up here, so we need to recover, dig deep and score goals.

:55:31.:55:37.

How difficult will be sweeping game be? You were split -- you were

:55:37.:55:39.

targeting specific areas of France today?

:55:39.:55:43.

We need to be difficult to beat, but we need to be better on the

:55:43.:55:50.

ball. -- Sweden. We need to try and create more, because it is

:55:50.:55:54.

important to get three points on Friday.

:55:55.:55:59.

John Motson has joined us. You have seen this tournament throughout the

:55:59.:56:03.

years, but you have never seen a England beat Sweden in a

:56:03.:56:08.

competitive game. I have never seen England win an

:56:08.:56:14.

opening game in the European ship - - European Championship.

:56:14.:56:18.

How did you see the England game? What it stood out for you?

:56:18.:56:23.

Be very deliberate way Roy Hodgson said the team up, most of what we

:56:23.:56:28.

knew France would be good that, England reasonably contained. I

:56:28.:56:32.

thought we well worth the draw, although I am a bit more cautious

:56:32.:56:38.

than Alan about the two games to come, I am not sure how poor Sweden

:56:38.:56:43.

and Ukraine are, I think England baby tested.

:56:43.:56:49.

Have you got a statistic for me? I was going to speak about Holland

:56:49.:56:53.

and Germany, because they need in the next game.

:56:53.:57:03.
:57:03.:57:37.

That is a perfect cube, because Colin Murray will have highlight of

:57:37.:57:42.

Colin Murray will have highlight of both games in Group A tomorrow.

:57:42.:57:47.

Holland versus Germany, many great memories.

:57:47.:57:51.

1988, Holland won the European Championships despite losing the

:57:51.:57:56.

first game against Russia. Marco van Basten, scoring in the very

:57:56.:58:00.

last minute of the game to beat Germany in the semi-final. He

:58:01.:58:04.

scored an even better one in the final.

:58:04.:58:09.

A brilliant player. One of the great strikers, cruelly robbed by

:58:09.:58:15.

injury. He had everything, pace, power,

:58:15.:58:19.

goals. Who is your tip for the tournament,

:58:19.:58:24.

Motty? Germany. They have got many good

:58:24.:58:31.

players, they played very well in the last World Cup, they started OK,

:58:31.:58:37.

a bit slowly but did enough to win, I think they will get better.

:58:37.:58:45.

England start slowly, but we don't usually do better! Alam, a month

:58:45.:58:51.

ago you were tipping Spain, and you have just told me Germany.

:58:51.:58:56.

Yes, I think Germany can win it. I agree with Motty. With the

:58:56.:58:59.

youngsters and the way they have been together, I think they can do

:58:59.:59:07.

It will be a great game tomorrow, the Dutch need something out of the

:59:07.:59:13.

Gary Lineker introduces live coverage as co-hosts Ukraine enter the tournament. Oleg Blokhin's men are in action against Sweden in the first competitive meeting between the two nations. This is Ukraine's first appearance in a European Championship, but they did reach the quarter-finals of the 2006 World Cup under Blokhin. Sweden beat the Netherlands in qualifying, and also warmed up for Euro 2012 with a 1-0 friendly away win over the Ukraine last August.

There is also a chance to see highlights of England's first competitive match under the management of Roy Hodgson, as they took on the highly-fancied French in an eagerly-anticipated Group D encounter in Donetsk. The French are unbeaten in their last five games against England, winning four of those matches. The Three Lions' last victory was a 1-0 success in Montpellier in 1997, courtesy of an Alan Shearer goal, when England were on their way to winning the Le Tournoi tournament.
