After breaking their record of going winless in the first game of Euros, England finally beat Croatia on matchday one.
Scotland, on the other hand, faced a bitter defeat at the hand of Schick. A loss for them would mean elimination. Would they be able to reverse them? Let’s find out.
England 3-0 Scotland
England 0-0 Scotland
“It’s coming home,” chanted the English fans when they won the first game against Croatia. Raheem Sterling broke the deadlock after a subliminal assist by Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips.
The game resumed in a rather dull fashion, but it was taken over by possession and pressing by England. The match ended in a 1-0 victory for England, hence allowing them to achieve the first win in the first game of Euros.
For today, they will start with Stones and Mings as centre-backs. Maguire is only one game away from returning to the starting up, so that we could be seeing Mings’ last game as a centre-back for England in this Euros.
The rest of the squad looks to be the same, and we are not expecting any rotation unless Jack Grealish comes into the team for Phil Foden.
It was an unfortunate start for the Scottish side after they collapsed against two brilliant strikes by Patrik Schick.
They will be taking on an England side that has no pressure, and quite frankly, it is the only hope they have of hitting them.
The statement still lingers in the present, but the real question is, do they have enough quality to compete with England? In the comment box, tell us about your ideas.
Maguire will replace Mings if he returns from the injury. The remainder of the team will stay the same.
England: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Mings, Shaw; Phillips, Rice, Mount; Sterling, Kane, Foden
Scotland: Marshall; Hendry, Hanley, Tierney; O’Donnell, McTominay, Armstrong, McGinn, Robertson; Dykes, Adams
Let’s see what our experts have to predict about this game.
Our prediction: England 3-0 Scotland
Does Scotland have what it takes to qualify for the next round? Maybe, no. Their team may have some famous names, but the lack of coordination in build-up play is poor, and we’re expecting an easy victory for England.
