ENGLAND fans are braced for the nation’s all-important Euro 2012 tie against Ukraine tonight after going through a rollercoaster of emotions in Boston pubs during Friday’s 3-2 victory over Sweden.

Roy Hodgson’s side took the lead through a spectacular Andy Carroll header but shortly after half-time fell behind to a Glen Johnson own goal and an Olaf Mellberg header.

At that stage the cause looked lost but Theo Walcott entered the fray and scored one and set up Danny Welbeck for a sensational winner to ensure it was a happy night for fans in the town.

Photographer David Dawson was out in the town to see fans enjoy and endure the nail-biting Sweden game and is set to be out again today as the Three Lions take on Ukraine.
