National teams of Czechia and England went toe-to-toe in the Euro 2020 fixture at Wembley stadium. 

It was definitely Raheem Sterling's night; he took the ball early and almost opened the score, if it wasn't for the post. Soon after that, fortune smiled upon him again. Jack Peter Grealish landed a cross from the left flank, and the City forward delivered a header.

The Czechs acted with discretion, so they did not create many opportunities to score even once. Meanwhile, the English could double their advantage, but Billingham delivered a shot just from the offside.

Earlier, the Scottish national team hosted Croatians at Hampden Park in the Euro 2020 fixture. 

The World Cup 2018 finalists opened the score early in the game, thanks to the efforts of Nikola Vlašić. By the end of the first half, Callum McGregor managed to even the odds. In the second half, Luka Modric landed a precise shot from the middle of the penalty area. Then, Modric landed a corner shot, and Perisic finished the attack with a header.

Thus, Croatians pass to the playoff stage, coming second in their group; earlier, the English squad did the same from the first place in the group. Czechia descends to third place, and still makes it to the plyoffs. For the Scottish, however, it is over.
