England vs Scotland confirmed line-ups: Euro 2020 team news ahead of fixture

England host Scotland at Wembley this evening as Gareth Southgate’s side look to secure their place in the last 16 at Euro 2020.

The Three Lions enjoyed the perfect start to their campaign last Sunday as Raheem Sterling’s second-half strike clinched all three points in a dominant performance against Croatia, with Kalvin Phillips the unlikely star at the base of midfield.

Southgate knows victory will alleviate any major apprehension heading into England’s final game against Czech Republic and is unlikely to make several changes to his starting XI, however, Harry Maguire could well return to central defence after declaring himself fit earlier this week.

England will be wary of a side in desperate need of at least a point, though, after Scotland stumbled to a dreary 2-0 defeat by Czech Republic in their opening match. Steve Clarke was forced to defend his cautious team selection afterward, with the omission of Che Adams from his starting line-up in particular causing surprise, while Billy Gilmour was never introduced from the bench.

“Every decision you make is a big decision,” Clarke said in defence. “You make decisions with the best intentions and that’s what we did. I don’t think Che would have made too much difference in the first half because we didn’t get quality ball into the strikers. When we lost the goal just before half-time I had a fair idea the game would open up. That allowed Che to show his talents.”

Confirmed line-ups

Odds:

England: 3/10

Draw: 9/2

Scotland XI: 9/1

Prediction

Scotland’s performance against the Czechs was not as a poor as the scoreline suggested but that defeat makes this all the more important, and it was already their biggest occasion for a generation. Even so, England’s quality should come through with a Wembley crowd behind them and there was enough resilience about Sunday’s performance against Croatia to suggest they can keep a clean sheet too. 2-0 to England.
