UEFA EURO 2020 Live: Netherlands v Ukraine (ko 8pm)

Frank de Boer's Dutch side will be quietly confident as they begin their tournament against Ukraine in front of their own fans at the Amsterdam Arena. Defensive lynchpin Virgil van Dyk is a big miss through injury, but in Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, Gigi Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay, they have a nice blend of youth and experience. An eye-catching 4-2 win in Germany in qualification was a real statement of intent. Andrij Shevchenko's Ukraine should not be underestimated - they topped a tough qualification group ahead of both Portugal and Serbia. 

Mark Pougatch is joined by Roy Keane, Gary Neville and former Dutch international Nigel De Jong for live coverage of this group C game, with commentary from Clive Tyldesley and Ally McCoist.
