Ukraine seeking revenge against England after Euro 2012 exit

Ukraine are out for a measure of revenge on England when the sides meet in a World Cup qualifying match on Tuesday after a controversial meeting between the countries at Euro 2012, the Daily Mirror has reported.



England won the match 1-0 through a Wayne Rooney header but a Marko Devic shot appeared to cross the line, only for John Terry to scramble back and clear the ball. The officials did not give the goal and Ukraine were eliminated at the first stage from the competition they were co-hosting.


The Ukraine manager, Oleg Blokhin, insisted that Ukraine could have used the equalising goal that never was as a spur to win the match and progress through the tournament and has spoken of his team’s determination to put the result right when they meet at Wembley.


Blokhin said: “The England game was frustrating for us. First of all our goal was ruled out. Of course it hurt us but it’s history…we were the better team, we surprised England and we can do it again.


Now we have to move on and make sure that we come back stronger which is always difficult but we have the desire and hunger to win at Wembley.


Ukraine and England have met each other five times ahead of this latest fixture, with England winning four of the games played. Ukraine’s only win came in qualifying for the 2010 World Cup, a 1-0 win home victory.
