Ukraine vs North Macedonia Euro 2020 time, date, channel

The Ukraine vs North Macedonia Euro 2020 game starts today (Thursday, June 17) at 2 p.m. BST / 9 a.m. ET / 6 a.m PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.

The Ukraine vs North Macedonia live stream is here, and it should make for fascinating viewing. Both teams need a win to have a realistic chance of qualifying for the next round.

The two teams lost their opening games, against Netherlands and Austria respectively, so a defeat here would leave them pointless with just one more Group C match to go. Given that this game likely represents both sides' best chance of a victory, it really is a must-win fixture.

Ukraine look to be best placed to take the victory, having battled back from two goals down against the hotly tipped Dutch to draw level in the closing minutes, only to then concede an agonising third goal with just five minutes left.  

That said, North Macedonia were level with Austria until 12 minutes before the end of their game, when two quick goals finished them off. 

That leaves the scene nicely set for the game today (Thursday, June 17), which kicks off at 2 p.m. BST (9 a.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT). You can watch the whole thing live, and for free, wherever you are, so here's how to watch the Ukraine vs North Macedonia live stream at Euro 2020.
