England frustrated as Ukraine hold Three Lions to draw

England will have to wait a little longer to qualify for Euro 2024 after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Ukraine in Poland, as their 100 per cent record in qualifying came to an end.

Despite dominating possession in the early stages, England fell behind with the game's first shot on target as Arsenal's Oleksandr Zinchenko netted for Ukraine after a breakaway down the right.

England equalised just before half-time through Kyle Walker's first international goal on his 77th cap, as the Manchester City defender finished in the box after Harry Kane's sublime defence-splitting pass from deep.

Bukayo Saka struck the bar while Harry Maguire missed several half-chances from set-pieces, as England improved their tempo after the break but found no final pass to get the three points.

The Three Lions remain six points clear of second-placed Ukraine, as attention turns to a friendly away to in-form Scotland on Tuesday night.
