Ukraine v Northern Ireland

Episode 8 Ukraine v Northern Ireland



Ukraine v Northern Ireland (Kick-off 5.00pm). Mark Pougatch presents coverage of the second Group C match for both teams, which takes place at the Stade de Lyon. Having sensationally topped their qualifying group ahead of the likes of Romania, Hungary and Greece, Michael O'Neill's men will now attempt to create more history by defeating Ukraine for the first time. Such a victory could prove vital to their hopes of reaching the knockout stage, especially as they lost their opening match against Poland, and their toughest test lies in wait following this clash, with world champions Germany up next. Having disappointingly failed to progress beyond the group stage when they served as co-hosts four years ago, Ukraine will undoubtedly be eager to impress their fervent following of fans, but may be considered as underdogs in this fixture given that they had to rely on a two-legged play-off victory over Slovenia to book their place in France, after only finishing third in their group behind Spain and Slovakia. With commentary by Joe Speight and Iain Dowie, analysis by Norman Whiteside, Lee Dixon, Craig Bellamy and Glenn Hoddle, and reports by Jacqui Oatley.
