Scotland are hoping to rain on England’s parade when they travel to Wembley for the pair’s highly anticipated Euro 2020 Group D clash this evening.

Steve Clarke’s side were cautious and lacklustre in an opening defeat by Czech Republic that leaves them facing an uphill battle to advance from the group. A draw will almost certainly be required as a bare minimum, although the possible returns of Kieran Tierney and Che Adams to the starting line-up should provide a welcome boost.

England, meanwhile, are in high spirits after their 1-0 victory against Croatia last Sunday, with Raheem Sterling’s second-half strike ensuring the Three Lions of a perfect start to their campaign.

Further good news arrives in the form of Harry Maguire’s possible return to the starting line-up, with the defender deeming himself “fit and available” to start, while Jack Grealish has admitted he is desperate earn a place in Southgate’s starting XI.

“I’m so desperate just to get on the pitch and prove to people just how good I am,” he said. “These are the type of games that I thrive off. Not even just in this tournament, I’ve made a name for myself (in other big games) during my career. I’m desperate to be involved. But the main thing is the team get the three points and carry on our good start.”

Draw: 9/2

Scotland XI: 9/1


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.
