Group D Roundup

France 1, England 1
Two Manchester City players scored their teams goals. Joleon Lescott scored a header off a beautiful free from Steven Gerrard. Samir Nasri cancelled out his club teammate’s tally with a shot from outside the box that beat Joe Hart near post. Both teams played conservatively in the second half to guarantee a point.
Ukraine 2, Sweden 1
Andriy Shevchenko scored two headers in the second half to give Ukraine a victory in Keiv. The 35 year-old netted the tying and winning goal after Zlatan Ibrahimovic provided Sweden with a lead in the second half. Sweden had chances at the end, but failed to convert. Ukraine will have plenty of confidence for the next game against France. Sweden is a solid team that will be desperate when they meet England on Friday.
