Euro 2021 – England Vs. Ukraine
England are onto the semifinals after an absolute dismantling of Ukraine. Harry Kane refound his form with two goals and our Man United lads came up clutch for the Three Lions again. Harry Maguire scored a thumping header to make it 2-0, which was assisted by Luke Shaw. New kid Jadon Sancho also got the surprise start on the right and had himself a match. And Marcus Rashford also found his way onto the pitch late on and England was in dreamland.
For the neutral the match may not have provided much to write home about, but for United fans I’m sure it was a joy to watch. We got a glimpse towards the end of the match of Sancho and Rashford linking up. Something we all can’t wait to see when they’re both wearing the red of Manchester. We also saw our two best defenders beast it up for the Three Lions. Harry Maguire scored off a Luke Shaw free kick, and Shaw added a second assist with his cross for Harry Kane. Maguire bossed the backline and Shaw showed why he’s the new England number one at left back. Manchester United fans have to be buzzing right now.
England Marches On
From a match analysis standpoint there really is not much to say. The English ruled the match and were 2-0 up by the halfway mark. They added a third just after halftime and a fourth in the 63′. In Fact, England was so far in control they were able to use all 5 substitutions in this match. England is sitting very pretty heading into the semifinal with Denmark. But, be weary English fans, this Denmark side is no one to be trifled with. Not only are they a pretty decent outfit with a strong squad, but they have the world on their side. The Danes have that something extra right now and that’s nothing to write off in this type of a competition. The match will be tight and England may be properly tested for the first time this summer. Although, those warnings may all be for not with the form this English side are in.
With only one team representing Manchester United now, there isn’t much else to discuss. Though it does say something that of all the teams entering this tournament with United players, it’s the team with the most left standing. Rashford, Sancho, Maguire, and Shaw will all play a role if England are to make it to the final this week. Let’s hope our United lads get some quality minutes on the pitch and show their class. Lastly, if they can lift silverware this summer let’s hope they bring the desire to win even more back home to Manchester with them.
