England will be looking to make it two wins from two in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign on Sunday night when they take on Ukraine at Wembley Stadium, having beaten Italy 2-1 on Thursday.
Ahead of the Three Lions second qualifier, we’ve taken a look at the Betfred markets to see if we can pick out some decent value.
England will be aiming to record an 11th European Championship qualifying home win in a row, a run that stretches back to a 2-2 draw with Switzerland in 2011. The Three Lions have won those games by an aggregate of 38-4, with at least two goals in their last nine. England have also lost just one European qualifier in their last 27, home or away.
England and Ukraine last met in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals, with the Three Lions running out convincing 4-0 winners at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Ukraine’s last win over England came in a 2009 World Cup qualifier in Dnipro, with Serhii Nazarenko scoring the only goal of the game.
Harry Kane: First (9/4), Anytime (4/5), Last (9/4)

Andriy Yarmolenko: First (9/1), Anytime (3/1), Last (9/1)
Mykhailo Mudryk: First (12/1), Anytime (9/2), Last (12/1)
Harry Kane became England’s outright top scorer in Thursday’s 2-1 win over Italy, overtaking Wayne Rooney on the all-time list with his 54th international goal. The captain will be confident of adding to his tally against Ukraine but, with him being odds-on to score anytime, it might be better value to back the Spurs forward to score either first or last instead depending on the team news as Ivan Toney could be handed his England debut against Ukraine.
The Brentford striker is the third highest scorer in the Premier League with 16 goals to his name this term and could join the likes of Darius Vassell, David Nugent and Francis Jeffers in scoring for the Three Lions on his maiden appearance.
For Ukraine, Mykhailo Mudryk hasn’t exactly set the world alight since moving to Chelsea in January but among his compatriots he might be able to show the Premier League just what he’s capable of.
Only two of the last eight encounters between these sides has seen both teams score, while there have only been goals at both ends in two of England’s last ten home European Championship qualifiers. Only three of Ukraine’s last ten away European qualifiers have seen both teams score.
1.5 goals: Over - 2/9, Under - 3/1
2.5 goals: Over - 8/11, Under - EVS
3.5 goals: Over - 7/4, Under - 2/5
4.5 goals Over - 4/1, Under - 1/7
5.5 goals: Over - 9/1, Under - 1/25
The last time these sides met was the first time in the last five contests between the two that went over 2.5 goals. However, England’s last four matches have gone over 2.5 match goals at least, while three of Ukraine’s last five have done the same.
0.5 goals: Over - 1/14, Under - 13/2
1.5 goals: Over - 4/9, Under - 13/8
2.5 goals: Over - 11/8, Under - 8/15
3.5 goals: Over - 7/2, Under - 1/6
4.5 goals: Over - 9/1, Under - 1/25
England have scored 23 goals in their last five European Championship qualifiers at home, conceding just three. Of those five games, only one saw England score less than four goals.
