Team News
Only a minute after being booked for taking too long on a throw-in, Shaw received his marching orders for a challenge on Retegui, so Ben Chilwell should cover for the suspended Manchester United man here.

A worrying sight for Borussia Dortmund fans, Jude Bellingham limped off the field late on and will need assessing ahead of this contest, but Jordan Henderson and Conor Gallagher are both on standby if the in-demand teenager does not make the cut. Meanwhile, Reece James has pulled out as he continues assessment on an ongoing problem, and Phil Foden is out due to appendicitis.
Given the quick turnaround from their flight home, Southgate may ponder a few more alterations, with the likes of Kieran Trippier and James Maddison - who is yet to start for his country - in line for minutes.
England possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Chilwell; Henderson, Phillips, Rice; Saka, Kane, Maddison

Meanwhile, Ukraine - like many other nations this month - have already been dealt a couple of injury blows, with Bournemouth centre-back Ilya Zabarnyi absent alongside 24-cap midfielder Oleksandr Zubkov.

Oleksandr Zinchenko has not had the best of luck with injuries at Arsenal this season, but the 26-year-old is already adored at the Emirates Stadium and should revert to his recognisable midfield role for the national team here.

Chelsea's Mykhaylo Mudryk should also be handed a start on the Wembley soil despite his slow start to life in England, while Andriy Yarmolenko - who is now on the books with Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates - needs three more goals to draw level with Andriy Shevchenko's 48 at the top of the Ukrainian charts.

The former West Ham United man has been absent for the whole of March due to a hamstring injury, though, so Girona winger Viktor Tsygankov may be preferred from the off.
Ukraine possible starting lineup:
Lunin; Konoplya, Matvienko, Popov, Mykolenko; Malinovskyi, Stepanenko, Zinchenko; Tsygankov, Dovbyk, Mudryk
Prediction: England 2-0 Ukraine
