Germany played a brilliant second half, and deserved the three points. Ukraine couldn't capitalise on their late first half momentum. They became the first team to win by a margin of two goals.
FINAL SCORE: Germany 2-0 Ukraine
90+1': Corner for Ukraine, cleared, counter by Bayern, Ozil picks out Schweinsteiger in the middle, brilliant finish from Schweinsteiger. That finsihes things off.
90': Three minutes of time added, can Ukraine doa Russia here?
87': Mixup between Mustafi and Neuer, almost capitaised by Ukraine, a wake up call for everyone.
86': Chance for Ozil to seal it, but he can only shoot straight at Pyatov, was on his right.
83': Chance for Germany, ball played from over the top for Shurrle, Pyatov just nips it infront of him.
79': The Ukranians try to play out of the back, under immense pressure from Germany. They lose it eventually as they are made to play a long ball over the top.
75': Muller with a pop from outside the box, saved by Pyatov.
71': The Ukranians have not had a foothold in the secod half so far, the Germans have kept recycling the ball.
68': Howedes with a great cross from the right, Draxler comes to meet it from the left, heads over the crossbar.
Substitution for Ukraine Seleznyov in for Zozulya, it's a staright swap on top.
65': Couple of crossing opportunities for Ukraine from the wide areas, but when the ball does come in, it's over-hit.
60': The Germans have kept the ball very well in the second half, another long string of passes sees Khedira with the ball at the edge of the box, who shoots, well saved by Pyatov.
57': Free kick from 35 yards out for Ukraine. Rakitskiy with the shot, well saved by that man Neuer again.
54': The Germans have pressed Ukraine a lot better in the second half, not allowing them any easy possession.
51': Wonderful passage of play by Germany, they keep the ball for a length of almost a minute before working it to Kroos who goes for the shot, which just goes over the post.
47': Draxler cuts in from the left and shoots to the far corner, Pyatov gets both hands to it and pushes it away for a corner.
46': The second half started similar to the first. Disjointed, both sides squandering posession.
A very entertaining first half, Manuel Neuer, Boateng, and Kross has been brilliant for Germany. That tells its own story for Ukraine, who have been nothing short of brilliant. That has been the best half of football so far in the Euros.
45+1': The first half comes to an end post a Toni Kroos ball, which, this time gets cleared by the Ukranian defence.
45': Another last ditch clearance by Boateng, the Germans would really like the first half whistle right now.
42': Great play from Sydorchuk on the right, keeps the ball from three germans to put a mean cross in the middle. Just over the head of Kanoplyanka, the ball comes to Shevchuk, who skies his shot/cross.
40': Ukraine are piling on the pressure here, the Germans are truly under pressure.
37': Another huge chance for Ukraine from a corner, Kanoplyanka crosses for Zozulya, who puts it in the back of the net only to see the referee's assistant raising the flag.
35': Ukraine counter, ball is worked to Yarmalenko, who cuts in and drifts the ball into the back post. Brilliant goal-line clearance by Boateng.
35': Kroos is absolutely calling the shots here, Kovalenko hasn't been able to get close to him.
31': Germany are piling on the pressure here, two back-to-back corners. No dilly-dallying, ball after ball into the box.
28': CHANCE, Kroos delivers yet another great ball over the top for Khedira, it's Pyatov's turn to make a great save.
26': Corner for Ukraine brilliantly headed by Stapanenko, another great save by Manuel Neuer to push it over the bar.
23': Germany look dangerous on the set pieces. The corner was heading towards the head of Mustafi, punched away by Pyatov, before Mustafi clatters into him.
19': Question marks on the free kick which caused the goal as it looked like the Rakitskiy had won the ball.
18': Foul on Muller, free kick for Germany in a promising position. GOAL!!! Mustafi heads an inch perfect ball from Kroos from the free kick.
13': Germany has upped the tempo in the last five minutes or so, the front players interchanging seems to be creating problems for the Ukranian backline.
11': Chance for Germany, Hector squanders it, though. A brilliant cross by Draxler from the left.
10': Sort of a mix-up between Boateng and Neuer from a high ball, no harm done though.
