England’s winning streak in Euro 2024 qualification came to an end as they were beaten to a draw by Ukraine in Wroclaw.

Ukraine was supported by 40,000 of their own fans in the Tarczynski Arena, giving the game the intense sense of a home fixture despite the fact that they are unable to play in their own country due to Russia’s conflict.

When Arsenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko turned in a cross from Yukhym Konoplya after 26 minutes, their gloriously boisterous crowd transformed into a thunderous scream.

England had plenty of possession but lacked creativity, and it took a brilliant moment from captain Harry Kane four minutes before half-time to set up the equalizer, dropping back almost to the halfway line before sending a magnificent raking pass to play in Kyle Walker for his first international goal on his 77th appearance.

The second half belonged to Gareth Southgate’s side, who came close when Bukayo Saka’s drive was deflected off the bar by the tiniest touch from Ukraine goalkeeper Georgiy Bushchan.

England is still on track to qualify for next summer’s Euros in Germany, but this was a disappointing showing.
