“It was the perfect night for English football, a perfect night for England,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
“They didn’t concede a goal, they qualified easily and they could rest important players.
They scored three goals from crosses and sometimes small things cause big impacts, and that was certainly the case when Ukraine lost a centre back in the first half. They were free headers and that is not expected at this level.
“Ukraine conceded three poor goals and the second goal killed the game. It became an easy game for England but they did it well and what was important for them tonight is that they didn’t concede a goal.

“That will be an important quality to go to the final and win it. They look more stable, defensively.
“They are still looking for the perfect solution going forward I think but I’m convinced now they will be difficult to stop.
