EURO 2020 analytics: England vs Scotland – download our report
Football’s oldest rivalry had its latest installment at Wembley on Friday night, as England faced Scotland in Group D of EURO 2020. England had beaten Croatia at the same venue a few days ago, while Scotland suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic at Hampden Park, which meant that both sides came into this match with completely opposing fortunes. England manager Gareth Southgate made a couple of changes at full-back, bringing in Reece James and Luke Shaw in place of Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier respectively, while the rest of the side was unchanged from that win over Croatia. Steve Clarke also made a few alterations, most notably with the return of Kieran Tierney from injury, while Scott McTominay dropped into the defence from midfield to allow Callum McGregor to come into the side as well. 20-year-old Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour was also picked in midfield, with Che Adams coming in to partner Lyndon Dykes upfront. While England had more of the ball, Scotland generally looked more threatening, other than a John Stones header from a corner that hit the post. Both sides were largely conservative and did not commit too many numbers forward in attack, which led to a largely uninspiring match and resulted in a goalless draw. England now are in pole position to win the group, while Scotland will need to win their final match against Croatia to have any hope of progressing to the knockout rounds at EURO 2020.
