Euro 2020 LIVE: England qualify and likely to play Portugal, France or Germany, Scotland OUT, Mount & Chilwell latest


GOOD MORNING EUROS FANS

England will play Germany, France, Portugal or Hungary in the last 16 of the Euros after beating Czech Republic.

The Three Lions’ narrow 1-0 win at Wembley last night ensured they finished top of Group D, with Raheem Sterling netting the winner.

And that means they have a horror last-16 clash with the runners-up from ‘Group of Death’ Group F on Tuesday, June 29 at 5pm – again, under the Arch.

As things stand, old rivals Germany sit second in that group with three points but they still have one game to play tonight against Hungary.

However, it could also be a meeting with World Cup winners France, or defending European Champions Portugal, led by Cristiano Ronaldo.

And England’s fate will be decided when those two teams also meet later today.

England goalscorer Sterling praised his side’s performance against the Czechs, saying: “I thought it was a much better performance, attacking-wise. 

“I thought we had more fluid movement and we created some problems as well. Most importantly, we scored the goal we needed and kept a clean sheet.

“It’s tournament football, it’s very different to being at your clubs. We just need to get to see games out a little bit better. We’re making good progress and now it’s time for a big challenge.”

There was heartbreak for Scotland though, as they crashed out of the Euros.

Steve Clarke’s men lost 3-1 to Croatia in front of a home crowd at Hampden Park.

And Scotland will now be exiting the competition bottom of the group.
