England face Ukraine in a crucial World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

Here, we take a look at five previous meetings between the two Group H rivals.

ENGLAND 2-0 UKRAINE - Friendly - 31/5/2000

Nine years after the fall of communism, Ukraine lined up against England for the first time. The Wembley crowd got their first glimpse of Andriy Shevchenko, Oleg Luzhny and Sergei Rebrov - who would all go on to play in the Premier League - while the England XI contained Alan Shearer, David Beckham and debutant Steven Gerrard, who was oddly wearing the number two shirt as Kevin Keegan experimented with a 3-5-2 formation. Robbie Fowler put England ahead before the break and Tony Adams made sure of the win, but there was no goal for Shearer in his final international on home soil.

England maintained their 100 per cent qualifying record for South Africa thanks to John Terry's late header. Terry headed Frank Lampard's corner into the six-yard box and Peter Crouch volleyed home, but 32-year-old Shevchenko showed his predatory instincts in ther 79th minute by stabbing the ball in after England failed to clear a corner. That was all forgotten six minutes later, however, as Terry came to the rescue with a winning header.

UKRAINE 1-0 ENGLAND - World Cup qualifier - 10/10/2009

A bizarre game for many reasons. Firstly, the collapse of Setanta Sports meant England fans had to watch the match online or in the cinema. Secondly, the clash had to be stopped in the early stages after the home fans lobbed flares into Robert Green's area. The England stopper then lost his nerve, clattering into Artem Milevskiy to pick up a red card and hand Ukraine a penalty. Shevchenko missed the spot-kick, but Sergiy Nazarenko scored just before the half hour to shatter England's perfect qualifying record.

UKRAINE 0-1 ENGLAND - European Championship - 19/6/2012

Wayne Rooney made the best impact possible following his two-match suspension as England edged into the knockout stages at the hosts' expense. Rooney pounced on a deflected Gerrard cross to sweep into an empty net from close range. Two years after Frank Lampard's 'ghost goal' in Bloemfontein, England were on the receiving end of a fortuitous call by the assistant referee as Marko Devic was denied a goal, even though his shot was cleared from beyond the line by Terry.

ENGLAND 1-1 UKRAINE - World Cup qualifier - 11/9/2012

Ukraine almost got revenge for that defeat three months later when they visited Wembley. A 5-0 win in Moldova had given Roy Hodgson the perfect start to qualification for Rio de Janeiro, but Yevhen Konoplyanka's spectacular first-half strike soon brought the England boss back down to earth. England failed to respond well and Ukraine looked to be heading for a famous victory until Lampard scored from the penalty spot with three minutes left.
