Euro 2020 football predictions, starting XIs and fixtures for Tuesday 22 June

latest euro 2020 predictions

The scramble is on for the knockout phase at Euro 2020 on Tuesday, with the four contenders from Group D all still within a shout of progression.

Top two England and the Czech Republic go toe-to-toe at Wembley, with only goal difference separating the pair at the summit.

Croatia and Scotland are scrapping to benefit from any slip ups, meanwhile, when they clash at Glasgow’s Hampden Park with three points a must for both.

Group D: Czech Republic vs England

England meet the Czech Republic at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday, with the pair locked on four points apiece at the top of Group D at Euro 2020.

Coming into the final round of pool fixtures with a win and a draw each leaves plenty to be resolved, not to mention the possibility of Croatia or Scotland coming into the mix if either of them can seal a win at the same time.

Gareth Southgate’s men endured a frustrating Friday night on home turf, as their neighbours produced a bold performance to leave London with a goalless draw.

Not the perfect follow up to their opening win over Croatia, but by no means a disaster for the Three Lions.

The Czechs also opened with success, doing what England couldn’t in beating the Scots 2-0 in Glasgow.

Their frustration came in stalemate against World Cup 2018 finalists Croatia, which nevertheless leaves them handily placed to make it through to the last 16.

Harry Kane has been given the nod to spearhead the English attack, despite a brace of leggy efforts so far.

Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell’s close contact with Chelsea team-mate Billy Gilmour has cost them, meanwhile, as they are forced into isolation following the Scotland midfielder’s positive Covid-19 test.

Changes could be afoot elsewhere too, with Jack Grealish a contender to replace Phil Foden for the night, with the Manchester City starlet one booking away from suspension.

Experienced duo Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson are both nearing their injury comebacks.

Alex Kral or Tomas Holes are competing to join West Ham star Tomas Soucek in the heart of the Czech midfield.

Probable Czech Republic Starting XI: Tomas Vaclik, Vladimir Coufal, Ondrej Celustka, Tomas Kalas, Jan Boril, Tomas Soucek, Tomas Holes, Lukas Masopust, Vladimir Darida, Jakub Jankto, Patrik Schick.

Probable England Starting XI: Jordan Pickford, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Declan Rice, Jordan Henderson, Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish, Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane.

Group D: Croatia vs Scotland

It’s a winner-takes-all scenario at Euro 2020 on Tuesday, as Croatia and Scotland have one last opportunity to scramble out of Group D.

They meet at Hampden Park sitting on just a single point apiece, but knowing a win in their final outing should be enough to take them through at least as a best third-placed finisher.

And it’s the hosts who are on a high, after skedaddling from Wembley with a point in their back pocket following a hefty effort against Auld Enemy England on Friday night.

It went a long way to making up for their opening match loss to the Czech Republic for Steve Clarke’s side.

The Croats also made up for defeat to the Three Lions when Ivan Perisic hit back to pinch a draw against the Czechs in Glasgow on Friday afternoon.

Borna Barisic could make a comeback following his injury, with Bruno Petkovic in line for a start.

Legend Luka Modric looks likely to be paired with either Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic in midfield.

The home side would have been tempted to start unchanged, not least after Billy Gilmour and Kieran Tierney looked to make successful returns to fitness at Wembley.

But the Chelsea youngster tested positive for Covid-19 in the build up, condemning him to isolation.

Probable Croatia Starting XI: Dominik Livakovic, Sime Vrsaljko, Domagoj Vida, Duje Caleta-Car, Josko Gvardiol, Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Ante Rebic, Andrej Kramaric, Ivan Perisic, Bruno Petkovic.

Probable Scotland Starting XI: David Marshall, Jack Hendry, Grant Hanley, Kieran Tierney, Stephen O’Donnell, Scott McTominay, Callum McGregor, Andy Robertson, John McGinn, Lyndon Dykes, Che Adams.
