All eyes will be on Group D at Euro 2020 on Tuesday, with England and Scotland both playing their final group matches.
England will only top Group D if they beat Czech Republic at Wembley after their disappointing 0-0 draw with Scotland on Friday, which has attracted widespread criticism for the hosts’ lethargic performance, including that of captain Harry Kane – who at this stage in World Cup 2018 had already scored five goals.
With England’s fate still in their own hands, and having beaten World Cup finalists Croatia in their opening game, winger Raheem Sterling – scorer of their only goal of the tournament so far – said the response to the stalemate with their oldest rivals had been over the top.
“I do feel there’s a bit of an over-reaction,” Sterling said. “I just feel there’s more of a panic on the outside than inside the building. At the same time, the players who have been at a few tournaments, who have huge experience, try to help the other ones.”
England’s preparations for their final group match have been thrown into difficulty with the decision to put Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell into isolation after they embraced and spoke to Scotland’s Billy Gilmour on the pitch following the Scotland game and, crucially, they are also understood to have spent time with their Chelsea team-mate in the tunnel afterwards, before he went on to return a positive Covid-19 test on Monday.
