KHARKIV, UKRAINE - While the winless Swedes will pack their backs and head home after playing Tuesday against France, the other three teams in Group D -- the French, English and Ukrainians -- all have a shot at either advancing to the final eight of Euro 2012 or being eliminated.

What do the three teams in contention need to do in their final group matches Tuesday?

Here's the breakdown, according to UEFA.

Games (Points in parentheses)

England (4) vs. Ukraine (3), Donbass Arena, Donetsk

Sweden (0) vs. France (4), Olympic Stadium, Kiev

England

-- Will advance with a win or a draw.

-- If it loses, must hope France also loses. The tiebreakers in effect would be goal differential and total goals. If France loses by one goal more than England but still scores fewer than England (i.e. if England loses 1-0, France must lose 2-0) then England would end up second because the differential would be the same and England would have one more goal.

Ukraine

-- Will advance with a win and out with any other result.

France

-- Will advance with a win or a draw.

-- If the French lose, they need an England loss and must maintain their plus-one lead in goal differential.

Sweden

-- The Swedes are out.
