EURO 2020 Matchday 3!

England are set to face Czech Republic in their last Euro 2020 group stage match, on Tuesday, at Wembley.

Both teams have equal four points in the Group D, however, the Czechs lead the standings due to goal difference.

England haven’t lost any of their last six matches, as they have just one draw, while Czech Republic picked up just two wins, two losses and two draws.

Here is the view from the camps.

Czech Republic midfielder Tomas Soucek said: “It will be extraordinary to play against Declan Rice as we meet every day in training and we play big games for West Ham together, but now we will stand against each other at international level. I think we will talk before and after the game, but during the match I will see him like any other opponent.”

While England boss Gareth Southgate added: “I think that our defeat in Prague is more relevant than the 5-0 in Wembley: The Czechs were a different team than the team that played in Wembley. We know the quality they’ve got. Some of their players have come to the Premier League and been excellent this season. Because of our recent history with Croatia and the fact that everybody focuses on Scotland, I think a lot of our fans pushed that Czech game to one side. We’re certainly not.”

Possible lineups for the teams.

Czech Republic Starting XI: Vaclik; Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril; Soucek, Holes; Masopust, Darida, Jankto; Schick

England Starting Starting XI: Pickford; James, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Phillips, Rice, Bellingham; Grealish, Kane, Sancho

Czech Republic are the nominal hosts, however, as mentioned the game will be held at Wembley, which will give the Three Lions a psychological advantage, and our prediction is that England will pick up a 2-1 win.

Prediction: Czech Republic 1-2 England
