Tyson Fury aims dig at Klitschko after England thrash Ukraine at Euro 2020

Tyson Fury aimed a sly dig at Wladimir Kitschko after England secured a 4-0 victory over Ukraine in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020.

Gareth Southgate's side were comfortable winners on Saturday evening, with goals from Jordan Henderson, Harry Maguire and Harry Kane (2) booking the Three Lions' place in the next round of the competition.

Andriy Shevchenko's Ukraine side were underdogs heading into the match and were unable to cope with England's attacking play throughout the contest.

After watching England dominate proceedings, Fury could not resist poking fun at former opponent Klitschko.

"I've not seen a beat down over Ukraine like this since Düsseldorf 28 November 2015," tweeted Fury after the Three Lions' victory.

Fury famously defeated the Ukrainian fighter by a unanimous decision when the pair went head-to-head in Germany six years ago.

His victory saw him take the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, and The Ring heavyweight titles away from Klitschko, who had previously dominated the division for well over a decade.

The Gypsy King is currently preparing for his latest fight with Deontay Wilder on July 24 in Las Vegas, in the third meeting between the boxing duo.

England, meanwhile, are one step away from reaching the final of the European Championships, but must overcome Denmark for that to happen.

Southgate's side are yet to concede a goal at the tournament and are currently favourites to go all the way.

Despite being tipped for glory at Euro 2020, the England boss admitted that the players and coaching staff cannot afford to get ahead of themselves.

Asked if he was able to enjoy Saturday's win, Southgate said: "Not really. But it’s fabulous, I suppose it’s still sinking in a bit, we’re in another semi-final, three in three years.

"We want to go a step further, two steps further. I know what is happening at home and it’s great.

"It's lovely to send everybody on a Saturday night beer in hand, in the air and they should, they should enjoy it.

"It’s been a long year for everybody and I’m chuffed that the two performances we’ve put on have brought so much enjoyment and happiness to people."
