FULL-TIME: ENGLAND REACH THE QUARTER-FINALS OF EURO 2012 AFTER A 1-0 WIN OVER UKRAINE IN DONETSK.
Goalscorer Rooney is off and is replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Shevchenko is rightly booked for a wild sliding challenge on Young. The England player is not happy about the tackle.
England make another change. Carroll is on in place of Welbeck.
Booking for Cole for time wasting at a throw-in.
Garmash off; Serhiy Nazarenko on
Milevskiy off; Bohdan Butko on
Rakitskiy then goes in the book for a body check on Gerrard.
Booking for Gerrard for seemingly using his elbows in an aerial challenge.
Devic is off and, to a huge roar, Ukraine send on Shevchenko.
Milner off; Walcott on. The pace of Walcott on a counter-attack will be a huge weapon for England.
Tymoshchuk is the first player of the night to go in the book
GOAL ROONEY (1-0)!!!
John Keating says: 'Although it may sound bias because I am an Liverpool fan, but for me Gerrard has been instrumental this half. I don't think Milner should have started, Walcott to come on, and I'd like to see big Andy given a crack of the whip. 1-0 England! Come on England!!! '
D Mollayev says: 'Ukraine are clearly dominating, however, the result can go either way as we have experienced before in this tournament. Not looking good for England down the road even if they survive.'
Allan Mitchell says: 'England will need to score early otherwise I can see Ukraine eaking a winner.'
Matt Jeffrey says: 'This is why Rooney shouldn't have started. He could've made an impact sub, whereas Carroll? Not so sure... No half-time subs.'
Les Hudson says: 'Theo should have started.'
Jim Boles says: 'Let's be frank. England are playing against the Ukraine and are not losing but not winning. Can they really expect to up their game against the likes of Spain or Italy? If this were the Premier League England would qualify for Europa league at best. We are outclassed.'
HALF-TIME ENGLAND 0 UKRAINE 0
Davey Whitfield says: 'I reckon they should have started tonight's game how the last one ended and bring Rooney on a little after. Walcott to start.
The bookies have been in touch. If you fancy a flutter, SkyBet say: 'England go into their final Group D encounter with Ukraine knowing a draw (12/5) is enough to see them through to the quarter-finals. The co-hosts will need a win, available at 12/5, to progress on home soil but they have only beaten England once in four games. The Three Lions have come out on top in three of the other four encounters - only conceding two goals in the process - and Hodgson's side are 10/11 to win and 9/4 to win to nil. Rooney is set to start after his two-match suspension and he is 9/2 to open the scoring on his return and 11/8 to notch in 90 minutes. We also have a number of specials requested by our Twitter followers, including any Manchester United player to open the scoring at 11/4.'
Simon Bintley says: 'I would have liked to see Phil Jagielka in for Terry. Terry looked a step slow against Sweden. Rooney's time to shine. 2-1 England. Hart will save the day.'
Lee Emerson says: 'Pleased the way Hodgson has done so far. Personally, I would have left Rooney on bench. The team were playing well. The only fault I have is that John Terry should be dropped, too slow, and he makes England play deep.'
Neil Doran says: 'Good dilemma for Roy to have all his strikers in form. Good idea to play Rooney, our best player, and rest Big Andy - who will be needed later on in the tournament. I must admit watching England can be the most worrying, horrible and nervy experience as we England fans want them to win so bad. Come on England!!'
Paul Bryden says: 'Should England stick to winning ways? Well they drew the first and only won against Sweden by 'making a change' England have not looked like scoring and all the goals have come out of nothing so the inclusion of Rooney is a great move. COME ON ENGLAND!!!!'
Chintan Bhatt says: 'Rooney in for Carroll?? Not sure how the others on bench will feel about this? Are we going with big names rather than form and winning combination? This has to be a media move from Roy - Anyways - COMEON ENGLAND!!!'
Andy Mackenzie says: 'Strong England team selected by Hodgson. Good to have Rooney leading the attack once again. Can see England winning 3-0, Rooney with two and Welbeck with the other. COME ON ENGLAND!!'
Nick Prynn says: 'Surprised Walcott is not starting. Shevchenko not starting is a bonus.'
