Wayne Rooney returns to the pitch for England after being suspended for the first two matches due to a red card given in a qualifying match. Andriy Shevchenko has two goals to his name thus far, and could be an X-factor this afternoon.

England can advance to the knockout round with a win or draw, whereas the Ukraine needs a win to stay alive.

Franck Ribéry, who has thus far been cold on offense with just a single assist, is the Frenchman to watch this afternoon due to his explosive attack on the French wing.
