World Cup qualifier: England v Ukraine

The latest score and minute-by-minute updates from England's World Cup qualifier at Wembley Stadium

  • 1 min: We're off here at Wembley.
    9/11/2012 7:00:22 PM
  • 2 min: A stop in play here as Garmash takes a whack from Hart's clearance. He'll be alright.
    9/11/2012 7:01:54 PM
  • 5 min: Ukraine enjoy a nice spell of possession with Yarmolenko showing some nice touches. The move ends with a cross come shot from Gusev which Hart tips onto the post.
    9/11/2012 7:04:22 PM
  • 6 min: Great start from Ukraine. Gusev gets the better of Baines and puts a cross into the six yard box. England get it away, but only just.
    9/11/2012 7:06:05 PM
  • 8 min: Fantastic ball from Gerrard across field finds Johnson. He cuts inside and puts the ball in the mixer. Lampard can't quite get there in time though. Better.
    9/11/2012 7:07:32 PM
  • 10 min: Not enough pressure on Ukraine and it allows Gusev to cross to the back post. It comes in to Yarmolenko but his touch lets him down and Hart collects.
    9/11/2012 7:09:22 PM
  • 12 min: Is it a goal? No. Defoe does brilliantly, jinking past a couple before firing it past the keeper from just inside the box. But the referee blows for a foul. Replays show Defoe used his hand to push off a defender but it was in the chest and not the face as the Ukrainian claimed. Poor decision.
    9/11/2012 7:11:46 PM
  • 14 min: The Ox looks to beat a few defenders - he does well but in the end it rolls out for a goal-kick. Gerrard is spraying some great passes about.
    9/11/2012 7:13:34 PM
  • 15 min: So close for Ukraine but captain Gerrard saves the day. Konoplianka looked to have taken a touch too many but his shot fell to Rotan who passed it towards goal and beyond the reach of Hart. Thankfully Gerrard was there to clear it off the line.
    9/11/2012 7:15:15 PM
  • 17 min: Back to Defoe's disallowed goal - what a strike. The Tottenham striker's shot was like a bullet past Pyatov, who could do nothing about it. Good game this. And very even.
    9/11/2012 7:16:50 PM
  • 20 min: Cleverley yet to see much of the ball for England and there looks like a lack of midfield protection for the defence. Ukraine look dangerous as they come at the home side. I hope we won't be getting into that ancient argument about whether Lampard and Gerrard can play together again. Yawn.
    9/11/2012 7:19:30 PM
  • 47 min: Slow start and then Johnson sloppily allows the ball to run out of play. Not the start England fans were looking for.
    9/11/2012 8:04:14 PM
  • 48 min: Defoe booked by the referee for an elbow on Tymoschuk.
    9/11/2012 8:05:03 PM
  • 50 min: Dangerous ball across the six-yard box from Johnson and it takes a dangerous touch off a Ukrainian heel which results in a corner. Ukraine deal with it.
    9/11/2012 8:07:02 PM
  • 52 min: Silly cross-field ball from the Ox puts Ukraine on the front foot which ends with Johnson having to put the ball behind for a corner. Lampard heads it away from the front post, with the ball dropping to Rotan who hits it sweetly, but wide.
    9/11/2012 8:08:46 PM
  • 53 min: Baines gets forward, and through a few defenders before unleashing a difficult volley. It's across the face of the goal from the Everton man.
    9/11/2012 8:09:54 PM
  • 55 min: This is only the second time in 12 years what one of the trio of John Terry, Ashley Cole (both injured) and the unselected Rio Ferdinand have not started a competitive game for England. Want to know the last time? The 3-2 defeat to Croatia featuring a certain wally with a brolley.
    9/11/2012 8:12:24 PM
  • 57 min: Milner wins a free-kick right on the edge of the area down on the right hand side. Selin is booked for the challenge and Gerrard whips in an out-swinger. But it's straight onto the head of a man in blue. Poor.
    9/11/2012 8:14:07 PM
  • 59 min: Wonderful run by Konoplianka down the left hand side who gets it across the box to Zozulya but England put it behind for a corner. Dangerous. The cross sees a header go goal-bound but it's soft and easy for Hart.
    9/11/2012 8:16:40 PM
  • 61 min: 30 minutes to go. Welbeck and Sturridge are warming up for England.
