England vs Scotland team news

England impressed in their opening match of Euro 2020, as a solitary Raheem Sterling strike gave the Three Lions a 1-0 win over Croatia at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate will be hoping his squad will get through another week of preparation unscathed, and that Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson make progress in their rehab.

Scotland, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back after their first display at the Euros in 25 years saw them beaten 2-0 by Czech Republic at Hampden Park.

Skipper Andy Robertson created six chances for Scotland - the most of any player at Euro 2020 so far - and will be integral to the Tartan Army's hopes of victory at Wembley.

England vs Scotland predictions

Fixtures of this magnitude are often so difficult to predict, with form flying out the window and raw attributes tending to come to the fore.

Both sets of players will be desperate to do their country proud and keep their respective Euro 2020 hopes alive with a valuable three points.

Expect a tight and competitive match, little space for either side to work in and - if there is to be a winner - then a moment of brilliance or defensive mistake could prove the difference.

Prediction: 1-1.

Last result between England vs Scotland?

Scotland were seconds away from recording a memorable victory over England the last time the two nations met, in a World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park in 2017.

Three Lions forward Harry Kane popped up with an injury time equaliser as the match ended 2-2 after a dramatic finale to the contest which saw Leigh Griffiths put the Tartan Army ahead.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had put England ahead on 70 minutes before Griffiths wiped out the lead three minutes from time and then put the hosts in front on the stroke of 90.

But Kane was on hand to dash Scottish hopes of getting one over the Auld Enemy deep into injury time to rescue a point for England on their way to World Cup 2018 qualification.
