Ukraine take on Northern Ireland on Thursday 16th June, 2016, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV.

To be perfectly honest, it is unlikely that Northern Ireland will be all that annoyed about being on on the same day as England and Wales. The British media rarely, if ever have a positive word to say about home hopes and with a good Ukrainian side the challenge, Northern Ireland will be happy for their match to go under the radar, at least until they’ve finished playing.

As we saw from greasy Ron yesterday, good players won’t always guarantee a win, so don’t expect anything here. Ukraine won’t be as entitled as Portugal of course, but their belief could turn into a hindrance.
