It looks promising, maybe the main game of Matchday 2 of UEFA Euro 2020; the national teams of England and Scotland are to step on the pitch to sort it out. The game will kick off at Wembley stadium in London at 10 p.m. June 18.

The English squad won their first game against Croatia. Garreth Southgate got a team of young and hungry players who nevertheless chose to play safe against Croatians - and still claimed their three points. Needless to say that the Lions can make it to the playoffs tonight.

The Scottish team could not beat Czechs in Round 1, though there was enough home support during the game. And this fixture against the English is, of course, a crucial one.
