England 🏴 Team News
Gareth Southgate's team finished top of Group A in qualifying, winning seven of the eight qualifying games. They got their Euro 2020 finals campaign off to a great start with a confident 1-0 victory over Croatia, Raheem Sterling's goal separating the two sides.
Gareth Southgate, England manager...
"It's hugely special for everybody involved, and especially the supporters of both teams. So it does add a different dynamic to the qualifying group we're in, there's no question about that. But the good thing is, from our perspective, we had to go to Hampden in qualifying for the World Cup and had the game at Wembley drawing 2-2 away and winning 3-0 at home."
England Predicted Lineup
Pickford; Walker, Stones, Mings, Shaw; Phillips, Rice, Mount; Sterling, Kane, Grealish
Key Player: Harry Kane
With the likes of Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Raheem Sterling on display, many eyes will be on England's young talent. But it will be the experienced captain Kane that can provide the focal point in attack. Still one of the most feared strikers in the Premier League with Tottenham, he has shown his adaptability this season when dropping off the front line to pick the ball up, with his assist tally almost as impressive as his goals. Formed a formidable partnership with Heung-min Son at club level, who can he form a similar partnership with at on the International stage?
Scotland 🏴 Team News
Scotland have qualified for two previous European Championships - Euro '92 and Euro '96. They have failed to progress beyond the group stage on both occasions and have a Euro's final record that reads W2 D1 L3. They didn't get off to the best of starts against the Czech Republic and went down 2-0 at Hampden.
Steve Clarke, Scotland manager...
"It's very historic. It goes back a long way; it means a lot. And people say it doesn't mean a lot to the English, but having worked in England I know it means a lot to the English; they don't want to lose to Scotland. And it's the same the other way around. You know how passionate we are, and how much we enjoy beating the English. It hasn't happened too much recently."
Scotland Predicted Lineup
Marshall; Hendry, Hanley, Tierney; Forrest, McTominay, McGinn, McGregor, Robertson; Armstrong; Adams
Key Player: John McGinn
McGinn has had an excellent season with Aston Villa in the English Premier League. Forming part of a formidable midfield trio with Ross Barkley and Jack Grealish. He was Scotlands leading goalscorer in qualifying with a tally of seven goals. His energy and ability to get around the pitch will be crucial to the Scots, who may not have a great deal of possession in games now the quality of the opposition is greater.
