  1. Rooney's goal is enough to secure the victory. The Three Lions will now face Italy in the quarter-finals on Sunday after winning Group D. France have finished second after losing to Sweden. Devic's shot had crossed the line before being cleared by Terry. England make it through to the knockout stages. But the focus is likely to be on the match officials and their failure to spot that Devic's shot had crossed the line before being cleared by Terry. The goalline technology debate will continue. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.

  2. 90 + 3


  3. 90 + 2

    Sweden 2 France 0

  4. 90 + 1

    Ukraine have looked like they have given up hope. Yarmolenko cannot be faulted for effort, though, and curls another shot wide.

  5. 90

    ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  6. 89

    Parker again puts his body on the line to block a cross. It has been a typically brave performance from the Tottenham midfielder.

  7. 88

    Who has been your man of the match? Let me have your nominations at or via Twitter @SkySportsPeteF.

  8. 87

    Goalscorer Rooney is off and is replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

  9. 86

    Shevchenko is rightly booked for a wild sliding challenge on Young. The England player is not happy about the tackle.

  10. 85

    Ukraine have a succession of corners, but survive. Hart is verbally blasting his defenders after England eventually earn a goal-kick.

  11. 84

    England are now deep and compact. Their midfielders and defenders are in set positions and will not be shifting for their defensive strategy for the finals minutes.

  12. 83

    Sloppy from Nazarenko as he gifts possession to England on the edge of the Ukraine box. Rooney and Carroll, though, make a mess of things.

  13. 82

    England make another change. Carroll is on in place of Welbeck.

  14. 81

    Substitute Nazarenko tries his luck from 25 yards. It is over the crossbar. Inaccurate shooting has been a recurring theme for Ukraine at these finals. As it stands, the co-hosts are joining Poland in going out of the competition.

  15. 80

    Into the final 10 minutes. As it stands, England are still set to win the group and would face Italy in Kiev on Sunday.

  16. 79

    Booking for Cole for time wasting at a throw-in.

  17. 78

    Garmash off; Serhiy Nazarenko on

  18. 77

    Milevskiy off; Bohdan Butko on

  19. 76

    Another corner to England. Pyatov is again unconvincing and Ukraine just about survive.

  20. 75

    Rakitskiy then goes in the book for a body check on Gerrard.
