England’s Euro 2024 qualifying campaign continues with the visit of Ukraine in the Three Lions’ first home match since the World Cup. 

Gareth Southgate’s side went on a run to the quarter-finals in Qatar before suffering a disappointing exit to France. 

Ukraine weren’t at the tournament after failing to qualify, but this will be a rematch of the Euro 2020 quarter-final in Rome. 

England would be happy for a repeat of that day, when a Harry Kane double and goals from Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire sealed a 4-0 win.

Southgate's side got off to a winning start by beating Italy away for the first time since 1961 with a 2-1 victory in Naples on Thursday. 

Kick-off is at 5.00pm GMT.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Euro 2024 qualifiers from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Euro 2024 qualifier, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Euro 2024 qualifiers, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
