Wayne Rooney is likely to replace Liverpool’s Andy Carroll, who scored the opening goal in the 3-2 win over Sweden.

“I’ve paid the price, I’ve had to take it,” Rooney said about his suspension.

“I have no problems with my attitude or my temperament. I’m happy and I’m ready to play.”

Reportedly, England manager Roy Hodson is leaning towards picking Theo Walcott to play alongside Wayne Rooney for Tuesday evening's decisive Group D clash v Ukraine although there have been rumors that England winger Walcott and Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko are both doubts.

Shevchenko scored both goals in the win over Sweden and played in the defeat by France but could miss out against England. The 35-year-old Shevchenko is struggling with a left knee problem he picked up in England's 2-1 win over Sweden.

Walcott suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury in training on Sunday.

“Unfortunately he had a slight setback in training today,” Hodgson said.

Hodgson said Walcott’s injury was not new.

“He felt the hamstring that kept him out for so long at the end of last season and that we were slightly concerned about when he came to us,” said Hodgson. “But we have been lucky that nothing has occurred with that.

“In the little training session we had today we had to take the precaution of taking him from the field because he felt a slight tightness there.”

“Whether or not he is a real contender for a starting position will depend to some extent on what the medical people can tell me,” added Hodgson. “And how much guarantee they can give me that if I do start him in the game he won’t be leaving the field after five minutes, forcing us to have 13 men rather than the 14 that I would rather count on.”

“Shevchenko got two kicks on the knee, the first one against Sweden in the second half and the second one was against France, said Ukraine media manager Oleksandr Hlyvynskyy:

“There is water on the knee. Is he doubtful? He is doubtful, yes, but the doctors are giving him some treatment.

“We hope he will be fit but now he can’t train on Sunday. I don’t know if he will train on Monday. We will see what happens.”

But Ukraine midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk painted a slightly more optimistic picture.

“Shevchenko is a little bit injured but I don’t think it is that bad,” said Tymoshchuk.

“He is a big player of our team and we hope he can play. He is the goalscorer and it will be very good for us if he could play.”

England defender Ashley Cole is one player who looks certain to start. When the Chelsea defender takes the field on Tuesday, he will break the record he currently shares with Peter Shilton and David Beckham when he makes his 21st tournament appearance at the Donbass Arena.

“He misses very few games, either for his national team or club team, and always plays to a very high level,” Hodgson said of the Chelsea player.

“It is great to hear that he has this record to beat when he plays against the Ukraine. I am delighted for him.

“It would be wrong to take him for granted. We are very much aware of his qualities and how much we need him down that left side. Because he is a quiet man, maybe for a lot of people he does slip under the radar.

“I know he is most comfortable when he lets his football do the talking.”

England need at least a draw to progress to the quarter-finals, while Ukraine require a win.
