Euro Group D gives its verdict on Tuesday (9:00 am), with the English and Czech knockout stages close, while the Croatia-Scotland winner can hope to win their ticket.
Will there be a match at Wembley? Between a stunning Czech Republic and a disappointing England, the temptation to ensure a draw, which of course qualified both teams, is likely to be great.
Especially since the opponent in the eighth does not look more economical than the first in the group. On the contrary: France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary for the first, Sweden, Slovakia, Spain or Poland for the second.
If two selections have equal marks (4), then their performance does not at all reflect the expectations placed in them. Many expected the “Three Lions” to bite a lot, while we may not have given the dear checks, yet finished first in the group on the eve of the result.
Thus the revelation Patrick Schick (3 goals) will be eager to stay in the race for the title of Euro’s top scorer, while English star striker Harry Kane will finally be looking to unlock his counter.
The second match of the group (9:00 pm) will take place in Glasgow. with equally opposing mobility. Croatia, a finalist of the last World Cup, never disappoints, but a win will guarantee them one of the best thirds.
Scotland, for their part, drew their “fighting spirit” to hook the English (0–0) and even came close to hold-up. This time, he will have to play Billy Gilmour without his young master, who has been imprisoned due to COVID-19.
Scoring three points on Tuesday in front of her home crowd will surely move her up to eighth place.
