Ukraine hope to advance into their first major competition semi finals since their last attempt ended with a 3-0 loss to Italy back in 2006
England will lock horns with a hungry Ukraine team as Manchester City’s Zinchenko hopes his team plays the game of their lifetime.
It definitely isn’t expected to be an easy one for both teams as even England will be looking to alter history.
The Three Lions are yet to advance past the competitions semi finals stage since losing back in 1996.
But Oleksandr Zinchenko believes Ukraine can produce a sensational victory if only they can play the game of their lives.

‘I will say that numbers speak for themselves,’ the Manchester City man said of England. ‘The fact that England hasn’t conceded any goals yet, they play very well in defence.
‘But I think that there are no perfect teams. Every team has weaknesses,’ Zinchenko continued.
‘With regards (Kyle) Walker and (John) Stones, they played an amazing season and during the last couple of years I’ve been playing with them they play at a very high level.
‘It will not be easy. We know it. But at this stage of the tournament, everything is possible and I think that the coaching team will explain to us what to do with it and we will do our best.
‘We will try to surprise them but of course we realise that to get through all the players and the whole team, they will need to play probably the best game of their lives.’
