Ukraine vs England Euro 2020 time, date, channel

The Ukraine vs England live stream starts today (July 3) at 8 p.m. BST / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ABC. In the U.K., you can watch on BBC iPlayer. Full channel details below.

The Ukraine vs England live stream could see England progress to a rare international semi-final, or produce yet another of the tournament's big upsets.

After a successful though hardly inspiring start, England are going into this quarter-final matchup like they finally mean business. Gareth Southgate's squad banished decades of demons by beating Germany in the Round of 16, their first tournament knockout victory against a German side since the 1966 World Cup win, and will be riding that momentum into this game.

Ukraine may also be on a high, albeit from very different circumstances. A 121st-minute Artem Dovbyk goal edged out Sweden in a thrilling Ro16 match that played out more evenly than the well-drilled Swedes may have anticipated. 

England are overwhelming favorites, though: DraftKings has them at -590 to advance, with Ukraine way back at +400. 

Both sides make changes for the match, with England recalling Mason Mount after his Covid-enforced absence and Jadon Sancho getting his first start of Euro 2020. Bukayo Saka and Kieran Trippier are the two to miss out.

Ukraine make one change, with Vitaliy Mykolenko starting at right wing-back in place of Taras Stepanenko. Ukraine captain Andriy Yarmolenko has recovered from injury and will play.

Here's how they line up:

Ukraine: Bushchan, Zabarnyi, Kryvtsov, Matviyenko, Karavayev, Sydorchuk, Shaparenko, Zinchenko, Mykolenko, Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk.

England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Phillips, Mount, Sancho, Kane, Sterling.
