    HENDERSON BUZZ

    England star Jordan Henderson is ecstatic with the big win over Ukraine that sent the Three Lions through to the semi-finals.

    But Henderson is also over the moon with the fact that he finally scored his first ever international goal after 62 attempts.

    The midfielder netted the fourth goal of the night and had no doubt it would ultimately happen one day.

    FERDINAND REACTION

    Rio Ferdinand hailed Manchester United star Harry Maguire's performance and claimed he is a special centre-back.

    Ferdinand told BBC: "Harry Maguire looks so comfortable at international football.

    "In an England shirt he looks like a man mountain to me. He comes out with the ball and picks the right passes.

    "He always tries to come out, bring someone to him and then play the ball and that is the difference, he wants to commit someone and that is the difference between him and other centre-backs"

    MAD REACTION

    Leicester star James Maddison didn't make the England squad but that hasn't stopped him from supporting his national team from afar.

    Maddison claims Tottenham star Harry Kane is the "best centre-forward in the world" after tonight's performance against Ukraine.

    Kane scored twice on his second consecutive match for the Three Lions after a long goalless spell.

    RICHARDS REACTS

    Micah Richards sang England manager Gareth Southgate's praises.

    Richards claims a lot of the Three Lions' current success comes down to Southgate's worl.

    He told BBC: "Gareth Southgate… What he's done with this team, the belief and the way he's changed the whole mentality.

    "The belief he gives the players, it's a joy to see, and they're repaying him with performances like these"

  • Kostas Lianos

    MAGUIRE REACTS

    England star Harry Maguire is ecstatic with tonight's result but warns there's still work to do.

    Maguire told BBC: "It's a great feeling, back-to-back semis is a great achievement. I don't want to be a party pooper but we don't stop here, we want to go further than we did at the World Cup. It's big progress we're making as a country, long may the improvement continue.

    "We have great belief in the dressing room. The first half was tough, but I think the second goal settled us down a lot. We deserved the third and fourth on the night.

    "We have to recover for another big one coming up. It's hard to soak it all in when there's another big one coming up. The dressing room will be great tonight, but tomorrow we'll wake up and be focused again, because this group of players won't settle for a semi-final"

    FT: ENGLAND 4-0 UKRAINE

    England started the second half how they started the first. Incredibly fast.

    Kane won England a free-kick in a promising position out wide on the left flank.

    And Shaw delivered a deep cross towards the far post.

    Maguire bullied his marker and powered England's second into the back of the net.

    Captain Kane got his second of the evening, after being picked out by Shaw.

    And Henderson scored his first England goal, heading home from a corner.

    England are through to the semi-finals of Euro 2020 and they will face Denmark next Wednesday at WEMBLEY!

    In the words of Michael Scott: "Oh my God it’s happening! Everybody stay calm. Stay f****** calm!"

    HAVE YOUR SAY

    Only a few minutes to go in Rome and it’s been an outstanding England performance overall, but do YOU think has been the key man for the Three Lions tonight?

    88. Ukraine are controlling the ball in the late stages, as expected – but England are happy for them to have it!

    England have thumped four past Ukraine in Rome tonight and they're pretty much through to another semi-final.

    86. England are cruising towards another clean sheet, their fifth of the tournament.

    It's been a professional performance, and yet again, England haven't conceded…… yet!

    84. England are getting an "ole! ooooooooooooooohhhhhhh……… ole!" every time a pass is completed.

    And when Ukraine win the ball back, a loud boo goes up around the Stadio Olimpico.

    82. Sancho shows some quick feet to get the beating of Mykolenko down the right-hand side.

    But the winger takes an extra touch, allowing the wing-back to get back into position and win the ball back.

    80. Southgate gets a lot of stick, and a lot of criticism for his line-ups.

    But he's guided England to back-to-back major international tournament semi-finals. Phenomenal achievement.

    And he's got an incredibly young side to work with. Bellingham, for example, just turned 18 the other day.

    The likes of Rice, 22, Sancho, 21…. the list is endless!

    79. Zinchenko works the ball out wide to Yarmolenko on the right-hand side.

    The Ukrainian captain uncharacteristically shifts the ball onto his right foot and gets a shot off.

    But his effort is blocked behind for a corner.

    76. Ukraine are enjoying a good spell of possession inside England's half.

    But the Three Lions look incredibly comfortable to sit off the men in yellow, and wait for the right opportunity to win the ball back.

    Maguire, in particular, has to stay disciplined for the final ten minutes or so.

    He is one booking away from a suspension and he's been pivotal for England at the back.

    74. Henderson plays a lovely ball wide to Sancho on the right-hand side.

    Sancho manages to deliver a late cross into the box.

    But the ball is cleared out of play by Matviyenko for an England throw-in.

    72. SUBSTITUTION!

    Captain Kane's night comes to an end and he's produced two goals on the night.

    He's replaced by Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front.

    Good chance for Calvert-Lewin to get some minutes, and possibly a tournament goal.

    71. Yaremchuk shows his frustration as he goes in late on Liverpool's Henderson.

    And the referee is having absolutely none of it.

    69. Pickford makes a mess of a clearance as he comes out to sweep a long Ukrainian ball out of play.

    And it almost leads to a shot on goal.

    Southgate throws his arms up in the air, questioning the goalkeepers decision-making.

    68. England are more than halfway there. Just over 20 minutes to go in Rome.

    It looks like England have a date with Denmark in Wembley, and the Three Lions will want revenge.

    Denmark were the last team to beat England at Wembley, quite recently, with Chrstian Eriksen scoring the only goal of the game.

    Both Maguire and James saw red.

    Redemption.

    66. Rashford stretches his legs for the first time down the left-hand side.

    The Man Utd winger tries to force his way into the penalty area, but a Ukraine shirt knocks the ball behind for a corner.

    The corner is whipped towards the back post, and Maguire gets his head on the ball.

    But he fails to direct his effort on target.
