England have their talismanic front man Wayne Rooney available for the first time in the tournament after a 2-game suspension.
A recurrence of a hamstring problem meant Theo Walcott was a doubt earlier in the week but Hodgson has confirmed that the catalyst for victory against Sweden will be fit to face Ukraine.
Ashley Young and James Milner's performances out wide have been uninspiring so far so Walcott could be in with a chance of starting this match, though the big decision remains who to drop up front due to Rooney's return, with Carroll perhaps the most likely.
Veteran striker Andriy Shevchenko was unable to train over the weekend and is the only real doubt for this one having led the line impressively up to now.
In search of a must win victory, if Shevchenko is not fit, the Ukraine may have to choose between Devic and Milevskiy up front, with the former perhaps more of an attacking threat than the physical Milevskiy.
Voronin could also move forward but is like to stick to his deeper role for the national side.
While England know that a draw will be enough to see them through to the quarter-finals, co-hosts Ukraine must win here after their 2-0 defeat to France last time out.
The England camp have made it clear that they will be going for the win outright and Hodgson would no doubt like to do so comfortably to be in with a chance of potentially avoiding Spain should they progress.
Their chances of doing so are far from certain in front of what will be a hostile and noisy home crowd so the Ukraine will be fired up for this one, with neither side's defence covering themselves in glory on Friday.
