Rooney winner sends England through

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney marked his return from suspension by scoring the goal which took England into the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 as they recorded a 1-0 victory over co-hosts Ukraine in Donetsk.

The Manchester United striker converted a centre from England skipper Steven Gerrard three minutes into the second half as Roy Hodgson's side set up a last-eight meeting with Italy in Kiev.

But there was controversy when Ukraine striker Marko Devic appeared to be denied an equaliser with a shot that looked to have crossed the line before John Terry cleared.
