Kiev, Group D: Sweden v England
England underestimated their opponents, and that seemed to have backfired until the 64th minute when an inspired substitution from Roy Hodgson turned the game on its head.
England went ahead in the first half with an Andy Carroll goal, but they the time Theo Walcott was brought on as a substitute, this still highly experimental English side were two one behind.
Walcott’s second touch was a brilliant long-range effort to make things even.
And then his surge and cross was somehow put into the back of the net by Danny Welbeck.
England had won their first competitive game against Sweden, who are now out of contention for this tournament.
How far can England go from here…well they do have a manager who knows how to make use of the resources at hand.
