Oleg Blokhin insists that Ukraine will "fight" to beat England in their World Cup qualifier.

Ukraine manager Oleg Blokhin has said that his side will "fight" to beat England in their World Cup qualifier tonight to exact revenge for the Euro 2012 defeat.

England beat Ukraine courtesy of a fortuitous disallowed goal against Marko Devic, and Blokhin said that his side will do all they can despite having been the "better team" at the Euros.

"We were the better team back then," The Express quotes Blokhin as saying. "We surprised England and we can do it again. Of course we will fight and try to win, but I cannot help it if people expect England to triumph now.

"I can't promise that we will win, but we come to Wembley to fight for victory and to show the result three months ago was just fortunate for England."

Tonight's game at Wembley kicks off at 8pm.
