Euro 2012: Group D – action gallery foxsports Oct 20, 2016 at 4:56p ET Wayne Rooney, England Wayne Rooney of England in action during the international friendly match between England and Belgium at Wembley Stadium on June 2, 2012 in London, England. (Photo by Clive Mason/Getty Images Its good to be back Wayne Rooney scores an easy one in his return for England. That loving feeling England has their groove (and their best player) back, and are ready to surprise the world as they advance on to the quarters. Thanks for the support Ukraine's player salute their home fans, who have been terrific throughout the tournament. Limping in France advanced to the quarterfinals even though they were dominated by Sweden Tuesday. Questions abound for the French as they prepare now to face the defending champion Spanish. That feels good The Swedes capped off a dissapointing Euro 2012 campaign with a feel-good victory over France. Ibrahimovictory! Sweden got the victory they saught after all, beating France 2-0 thanks to this beautiful, strike-of-the-match type goal from Ibrahimovic. Did you miss me? Wayne Rooney had an immediate impact in his return from suspension for England, opening the scoring and sending England to a 1-0 lead. Hotly contested It looks like Ukraine has been outplaying England throughout the match, but couldn't quite capitalize on several opportunities. Elbowed out Sweden had already been elbowed out of the tournament, but they will exact whatever flesh they can from France before heading home. Out but not down Sweden is put up a strong performance against France, despite having only pride to play for. Doing 'Wel' for yourself Danny Wellbeck of England and Yaroslav Rakitskiy of Ukraine fight for the ball. Familiar spot With Rooney back on the pitch, England is in the driver seat to win their group and advance farther in Euro play. France, Away! Even with a loss, France will advance to the Euro 2012 quarters. Awkward position England sends co-host Ukraine home if they win or draw, making this the 2nd Euro in a row where neither host country will advance past the group stage. Bright lights Group play concluded on Tuesday, but the stage is set for a stellar quarterfinal round that begins on Thursday.
