czech republic england euro 2020

England and the Czech Republic both advanced to the round of 16 at the European Championship a day before their match.

Results in other groups allowed both to be guaranteed at least one of the four best third-place spots. The Czechs have four points from their first two games and head Group D, ahead of England, on goal difference.

The teams will meet at Wembley Stadium in London with no pressure for advancement but with first place in Group D on the line.

Scotland or Croatia can join them in the round of 16 with a victory. They both have one point from their opening two matches and will play each other at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

The big news today is that Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell are both isolating after coming into close contact with Scotland’s Billy Gilmour, who has tested positive for coronavirus, and are ruled out of the Czech game and possibly England’s last-16 encounter, should they fail to win the group, therefore, bringing the last-16 game within the period of isolation.

Possible line-ups

Czech Republic: Vaclík; Coufal, Čelůstka, Kalas, Bořil; Souček, Holeš; Masopust, Darida, Jankto; Schick
Misses next match if booked: Bořil, Hložek, Masopust
