Euro 2012: England, France victorious in Group D

France secured their first Group D win at Euro 2012 at the expense of co-hosts Ukraine during a rain-interrupted spectacle in Donetsk.
The teams were forced off after only four minutes because of the stormy conditions, returning almost an hour after the scheduled start.
Jeremy Menez opened the scoring in the second half when he drifted inside his marker and fired in from 12 yards.
Yohan Cabaye added a second with a low strike from the edge of the area.

Theo Walcott comes off the bench to rescue England and put Roy Hodgson's men on course for the knockout stage.
Andy Carroll's superb first-half header allowed England to establish comfortable control - but poor defending allowed Sweden to score twice and and take the lead before the hour.
Substitute Walcott's swerving finish for his first international goal in nearly four years brought England level after 64 minutes before his darting run into the area and cross allowed Danny Welbeck to apply an instinctive back-flick finish.
