England defeated the home country, Ukraine, 1-0, but not without controversy. Ukraine looked to have scored in the 62nd minute, but the ball was cleared off the line by England defender John Terry, but it had looked to have already crossed the goaline. The referee did not allow the goal, and England's score from Wayne Rooney held up in a 1-0 victory.
