Saka was an injury doubt before the quarterfinal clash with Ukraine due to an injury picked up in training on Friday and he went on to miss the game played at the StadioOlimpico in Rome, Italy on Saturday night. Without Saka in the squad, England had too much quality for the Ukrainians. The Three Lions ran out 4-0 winners thereby booking their place in the semis against the Danes. England took the lead on four minutes through Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane off the assist from Raheem Sterling. The England skipper gave his team a dream start and his goal was enough for a 1-0 lead at the interval.

England scored three goals in the second half to win the game convincingly. Manchester United centre back Harry Maguire doubled the lead for the one-time world champions at the start of the second half. The dream start for England in both halves gave the Three Lions the platform to secure a last four place at the tournament. Left-back Luke Shaw provided the assist for club teammate Maguire to score the second England goal one minute into the second half before he turned provider again for Kane to complete his brace four minutes later. The two goals scored by the Spurs attacker gave him the man-of-the-match award at the end of the game.

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has rarely played for England at the tournament this summer due to the form of Declan Rice and Kalvin Philips in midfield and he came on for the West Ham United star Rice on 57 minutes. Henderson scored the fourth and final goal for England off the assist from Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount six minutes later as the Three Lions secured a last four clash with Denmark in a comfortable manner.
