Euro 2020 Day 8 Preview

England vs. Scotland Derby!

Group D

Croatia vs. Czech Republic

Croatia sit 3rd in the group with 0 points as they play a must win game against the Czech Republic. Croatia were lacklustre against England and provided no real threat. It was surprising given the level of players they have available to them. Czech Republic were very good against Scotland and Schick in particular lit up the game. Czech Republic can secure a place in the Round of 16 with a win and so the pressure is on Croatia to come out fighting. 

England vs. Scotland

A derby of sorts as group leaders England take on bottom of the table Scotland. England did enough to beat Croatia but they were far from brilliant although the selections by Southgate didn’t help. Scotland on the other hand played well against the Czech Republic but just fell short in the end. This should be a feisty encounter and a must watch between the two teams. Similar to the other game the pressure is on Scotland to come out fighting. Expect goals. 

Group E

Sweden vs. Slovakia

Slovakia sit top of the group with 3 points and can seal a place in the Round of 16 with a win. Sweden sit 3rd in the group with a point and they themselves can go top of the group with a win. The race for qualification was always going to be tough in Group E and this game should be as unpredictable. Slovakia showed against Poland that they have the quality and belong in the tournament. Sweden had some great moments against Spain with Isak coming close a few times.
