THE BIG MATCH
England v Czech Republic prediction?
There’s not a lot of jeopardy for England, and finishing second in the group could bring a more favourable last-16 tie.
The Czechs need to qualify and their star striker Patrick Schick is back in fine form. Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal have both been having outstanding seasons with West Ham.
England will still need to respond to their struggles displayed during the Scotland game – very much needing a more dynamic and inventive performance.

England’s final group stage match of Euro 2020 is finally here, tonight Southgate’s team will meet the Czech Republic at Wembley stadium, already knowing they have qualified for the knockout stages.

England is guaranteed a place in the last 16 but after the goalless draw in the highly-anticipated game against Scotland – Southgate’s team will be keen to win. If England win, it will see them top the group, a draw will see them finish second and a defeat could mean England finishing third.
