What is the team news?
To be determined, although England didn’t pick up any serious knocks against the Germans.
Indeed, Gareth Southgate heaped praise on England’s "immense" players after they secured a historic, morale-boosting victory against Germany and progressed to the quarter-finals.
A partisan Wembley crowd roared the Three Lions to just their second ever European Championship knockout triumph on Tuesday, with a clash against Ukraine in Rome the reward.
England struck twice just as fear began to creep in about another major competition exit to Germany, with the squad heeding their manager’s advice to make their own history in the 2-0 last-16 win.
Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane scored the decisive goals, with ‘Football’s Coming Home’ echoing around Wembley at the end of England’s biggest match on home soil since the Euro 96.
Hopes of glory were ended at the semi-final stage 25 years ago as Southgate missed the pivotal penalty, but dreams are alive of becoming European champions.
"I think the players were immense," England manager Southgate said. "Right the way through the team they were immense.
"They have given the fans in the stadium, who were also incredible (a great day). I’ve been here with a full house and not heard it anywhere near the levels that the crowd found today.
"But they were behind every challenge, they were behind every time we pressed the ball, they were behind every run we had and the energy was incredible in the stadium.
"So, to be able to send them home feeling as they do tonight, to hear them at the end… I mean, you can’t beat a bit of ‘Sweet Caroline’, can you? That’s a belter, really.
"But to know that so many millions of people after such a difficult year at home can have that enjoyment that I know we’d have given them today is very special."
