England to get their 9th win in Ukraine? Capello will be hoping the three lions will maintain their winning form.

Is Fabio Capello going for that 10 out of 10 wins that would set him apart from all his predecessors as England Boss? England have great players but with the help of Capello, he has transfer England as a well respected team on or off the field. They sailed through the world cup group stages and now facing Ukraine away in one of their last two matches in the group. Capello does not look likely to loosen up until he has won the World Cup beating the three lions on his chest.

Ukraine knows what it will take to get themselves to the World Cup, two wins will guarantee a safe passage qualifying as second in the group. They are currently 3rd in the group with 15 points while Croatia have 17 points but with a match played more. Their final match in the group will be an away match against the minnows Andorra. Ukraine travels to London with Coach Oleksiy Mykhailychenko have called up Dynamo Kyiv defender Yevgen Khacheridi to the national team camp as Dmytro Chygrynskiy and Andriy Rusol are injured. Vitaliy Mandzyuk is suspended against England due to bookings.

The likes of Beckham, Barry, Couch or Upson could be well in a chance to feature in the starting lineup against Ukraine on Saturday. As undefeated with 8 win out of 8 matches, England does not look likely to surrender that good form and record. For that reason, Capello has selected a strong 23 man squad that might give a few household names a 45 minute in Ukraine. Lampard, Gerrard, Terry and Rooney looks likely to start but others are hoping that Capello will not go with the strict régime. The England squad has omitted players like Michael Owen, Jermain Defoe, Ben Foster, Theo Walcott and Premiership top scorer Darren Bent. England fans might see the return of David James in goal.

England are clear favorites to beat Ukraine. Last time these two teams met was back in April where England defeated Ukraine 2-1 in Wembley stadium. Ukraine knows that need points and they need to get some here to keep their World Cup dream alive. Check out Betsson as they are offering 3.25 for a draw between Ukraine and England.
