England beat Scotland 0-0 on the second day of Group D of Euro 2020 in London on Friday. With this partnership, England are yet to validate their ticket to the Round of 16 and are second in the group with 4 points behind Czechia, who also have 4 points but have a better goal difference. Croatia is in third place with one point, as is Scotland in fourth place. The first opportunity for this British derby was to be awarded to the Scots. After a good combination, Stephen O’Donnell sent a center back towards Che Adams but the Scottish attacking shot was blocked by John Stones (4th). The English defender then looked to open the scoring for England, but his head hit Scottish goalkeeper (11th) David Marshall’s post. In the process, Mason could not find the frame on the serve of Mount Stirling (13th).
Organized well, Scotland missed a few chances and could be dangerous at the other end of the pitch. After an overflow and a cross from Kieran Tierney, O’Donnell regained the volley ball but Jordan Pickford had a firm hand to remove the leather (30th).
The second period began at a hundred mph and Adams did not take advantage of an error by the English defense to alert Pickford (57th). The ‘Three Lions’ then responded with a strike from Harry Kane, which was countered by the Scottish Defense (59th). The meeting went away and Reece James had to save on the line for a recovery from Lyndon Dykes to prevent ‘Tartan Army’ from scoring (62nd).
In front of their home crowd, the Englishman could not pack the match despite the rise of Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford. Scotland controlled the end of the game and managed the last English attack to snatch a point in the British derby.
A result that does not business England does not take advantage of the Czech Republic’s division against Croatia, let alone take the head of Group D. Both English and Czech occupy the head of the group with 4 points. Behind, Croatia and Scotland are in third place.
England and Czechia will clash for first place in the group at Wembley on the third and final day. At the same time, Scotland and Croatia will qualify for the round of 16 to be held in Glasgow. Both the meetings are scheduled for June 22 at 9:00 pm.
