Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Scotland face the Czech Republic at Hampden Park this afternoon in the hosts’ first game of a major men’s tournament in 23 years.

The two nations are joined in Group D of Euro 2020 by England and Croatia, who met yesterday at Wembley Stadium as the Three Lions emerged victorious 1-0 thanks to a goal from Raheem Sterling in second half-time. England will now be clear favorites to win the group, but the remaining sides will know that one win can be enough to carry them into the bottom 16 as one of the top four thirds. Scotland and the Czech Republic would both withdraw for a guaranteed qualifying for the round of 16, but must instead look to come out on top in this afternoon’s meeting.

The big squad news sees Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney missing the team of the day. Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson is the left wing captain. Manchester United’s Scott McTominay and Aston Villa’s John McGinn start together in the center of midfield.
