England vs Ukraine takes place on Tuesday night in a vital World Cup 2014 Qualifier which could determine who goes to Brazil and who stays at home. The match is scheduled to kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
England know this is potentially the most important game they have left in qualifying. They currently sit atop Group H with 15 points from their 7 games, however, Montenegro are level on points having played one more game than England. Because England have a much superior goal difference over Montenegro they have a tiny bit of breathing room.
However, they play Ukraine today who sit in third, and they have just one point less than England having played the same number of games. That means if Ukraine can pull off a shock win today then they will leapfrog England into the top spot in the group and will be in the driving seat to qualify automatically for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
If England can even get a draw today most pundits would still expect them to qualify top of the group and remain in the best position going into the final few games of the campaign.
Meanwhile, England boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed Frank Lampard will earn his 100th cap against Ukraine on Tuesday. The 25 year old Chelsea midfielder will become only the eighth England player to reach the milestone.
Only one change will be made to the England side tonight to the side that beat Moldova 4-0, with midfielder James Milner set to replace banned striker Danny Welbeck.
Hodgson said: "Frank will play so that's quite a first. I've been very lucky to have three players who have reached [100 caps in the same side] and all things being equal Frank will start and get his 100th cap. Basically, there will only be one change in the team, that will be the person who replaces Welbeck. I will leave it to you to make your assumptions."
