Team news: Ukraine striker Artem Besedin was victim of a horror challenge by Sweden’s Marcus Danielson in their quarter-final, and while he has not ruptured his ACL, there are fears that he could remain sidelined until 2022. Oleksandr Zubkov is reported to have recovered from a calf strain and could put his name in the hat for selection, while Denys Popov has been forced to withdraw through injury. Dovbyk’s heroics may not be enough to earn him a start over Andriy Yarmolenko and Arsenal-linked Roman Yaremchuk, although the West Ham United man was cautioned in the last-16 win. England duo Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell have completed their self-isolation periods after a coronavirus scare, but the latter is highly unlikely to challenge an in-form Luke Shaw for a spot on the left. Southgate’s shift to a back three worked wonders against Germany and may therefore be deployed here once again, which would hinder Jack Grealish’s chances of a deserved start, but Mount is a candidate to replace the doubtful Bukayo Saka alongside Sterling and Kane. Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips are both walking a tightrope after picking up bookings against Germany, so Jordan Henderson may be considered for a place in the XI, but changes will understandably be kept to a minimum if Southgate can help it.
