  • End of 2nd Half

FULL TIME: England 0-0 Scotland. Huge cheers from the Scottish fans and a few boos for England.

Harry Kane was taken off after 75 minutes

That's a HUGE goalmouth scramble! Rice tries to take James's low ball in from the right on the burst. It bounces around with bodies everywhere, but it doesn't drop for an England shirt for a tap-in and Scotland survive.


Two minutes added.


O Flower of Scotland can be heard in the Wembley air. No doubt which set of supporters are happiest at the moment. England still hoping to nick it though.

Plenty of top performances out there for Scotland. Not many for England it has to be said.


#Gilmour stats


AS IT STANDS: England are second in Group D on four points and behind leaders Czech Republic on goal difference. Croatia are third on one point along with Scotland in fourth.


Both sides still feel they can win this. Scotland aren't sitting back and are going for it. The match is so open. Could we still get a winner?


Adams is left free at the far post after England struggled to deal with Robertson's left-wing cross but loses composure and skews a difficult shot well wide.

Slick play from England. Shaw plays a wonderful one-two with Mount but flashes well wide of the far post.


Sterling frowns, Kane looks tired and a tad forlorn. Lots of agitated English faces at present. Meanwhile, it looks like Rashford could be about to enter the fray.


It’s probably worth pointing out that Scotland’s loss to the Czech Republic was their first in six games and only their third in the past 17. They aren't a pushover but England will know they could have been a lot sharper here.


The crowd are trying to lift England. They want more urgency and are cheering every positive piece of play when the ball is moved forward with pace on it.


Shaw fires a deep free kick from the left towards Mings but it's too long and the defender is forced to reset and play the ball back. England will build again.



There's no doubt that at this moment Scotland will feel this game is here for the taking.

ENGLAND CHANGE: Grealish on for Foden.


OFF THE LINE! James heads clear after Dykes turned in the box and rifled a shot towards the far corner.


Mings back pedals and leaps brilliantly to head clear after Dykes looked certain to get on the end of a raking ball from the right.


INCOMING: A certain Mr Grealish... No pressure, Jack.


Kane threatens just outside the area but his low shot is well blocked by Hanley. There have been a few signs that Kane is getting into the game in the last couple of moments.


Lots of cheers from the crowd as Grealish steps up his warm up. Rashford joins him.


Nervy moments for England. a long-range strike from Dykes almost falls for Adams in the box. He can't get a first-time shot away and has to twist and turn before seeing an eventual effort well blocked.


CLOSE! Kane gets a rare touch on the left side. He looks up and picks out James just outside the area but the full back flashes a shot inches over the bar.


England with a lot of the ball again but the tempo has gone and Scotland have everyone back in an organised shape.

Tyrone Mings (R) battles for possession

SAVE! Much better from England. Mount drives in from the left and fizzes in a 20-yard drive that Marsahll pushes past the post.


CLOSE! Sterling wriggles into space on the left side of the area and looks to feed the dart to the near post from Foden but Robertson reads it well and manages to make a crucial challenge.


It's all anyone's talking about - how long until England turn to Grealish?


OPTA STATS: England failed to record a shot on target in the first half of a match at Wembley for the first time since a friendly versus Germany in November 2017, while they last failed to do so in a competitive game there in November 2014 against Slovenia.

  • 2nd Half

KICK OFF! No changes at the break. England get us back underway.

  • End of 1st Half

HT: England 0-0 Scotland.


Robertson works the resulting corner short but his hoisted cross to the far post comes to nothing.


Adams comes short, turns into space and sees a 30-yard shot deflect behind. Scotland will be delighted with how this half has gone.

Scotland's Che Adams holds the ball

DID YOU KNOW? Scotland have only won one of their last 11 matches against England (D2 L8). That was in a European Championship qualifier at Wembley in November 1999. Don Hutchison got the only goal of the game.


Already lots of social chatter about Jack Grealish....


Pickford does well to come through a sea of bodies and punch clear after Scotland had packed the area trying to attack a left-wing corner.


Adams balloons the ball out of play as he tries to switch it to the right edge of England's box. That was a shame for the Scots as their excellent pressing had forced England into a sloppy error that allowed them to threaten.


STAT: Sterling has been directly involved in 19 goals in his last 17 caps for England (13 goals, six assists).


Sterling looks to the heavens after making a clever run into the left side of the area, but his touch lets him down and he can't recover to get the shot away that he was hoping for.


SAVE! O'Donnell arrives at the far post to meet a deep cross from the left by Tierney and forces Pickford into a flying save with a smart volley. Adams tries to convert the rebound but can't keep his reaction header on target.


What a ball that is. James whips a devilish cross into the area for Kane who can't quite catch up enough to get a diving header on target on the stretch. The flag was up, but it was a tight call so VAR may have had a closer look if it had gone in.


England bossing the ball a lot more now. The hosts have had 63 per cent of the possession.

Reece James - Inghilterra-Scozia Euro 2020

Sublime. Foden channelling Paul Gascoigne in 1996 in more ways than just the bleached blond hair.


GOAL-FEST? The four matches between England and Scotland this century have featured 16 goals (11 for England, five for Scotland). That’s an average of four goals per game.


Tiereny chests down a clearance and volleys just wide from 30 yards out. It came after England had to head away the second ball when Hanley nodded Gilmour's left-wing free kick back into the mix.

John Stones goes up for a header

VIDEO: Stones hits the post!


Foden makes a run from deep and takes down James' angled ball from the right side. He shows nice composure to open up his body and looks to place it - but it's wide of the far post. His blushes are spared though. The flag was up for offside.

McGinn is the first player in the book tonight. The Aston Villa man looks to have picked up the caution for dissent after the referee felt his appeals for a free kick against Mings were a bit extreme.


VIDEO: Adams goes close for Scotland.


Sterling robs McTominay deep in Scotland territory. He jinks in from the left but Mount can't react fast enough to guide his low pass into the net and the chance goes begging.


WOODWORK! Stones is left completely free to meet a right-wing corner but flashes his header against the post. That's a BIG let off for the visitors.


England look to change that but Mount sees his 25-yard effort take a nick off a defender and fly wide. Corner ball!


Fair to say Scotland have shaded the early sparring.


Scotland move the ball clear and win their own set piece on the left. Mings meets the resulting delivery and powers a firm header to safety.


An England free kick from the right falls short for Rice but the West Ham man can't adjust his feet fast enough and the ball trickles through to David Marshall.

John McGinn challenges Raheem Sterling

Adams would love to have that opportunity again. His strike was heading on target but it lacked real power and allowed Stones to get his body in the way.


CLOSE! Che Adams sees a low shot from the right side of the area well blocked by Stones after a slick move down the flank saw Stephen O'Donnell pull the ball back into the forward's path.


What a noise. Football with fans is SO good. You'd think Wembley was a full sell-out. So much passion emanating from the stands.


There's been a foul inside 10 seconds there! Dykes flattens Shaw with an over-zealous jump in the air. This could be a feisty one.

  • 1st Half

KICK OFF! Scotland get this Euro 2020 Group D clash up and running!


Calm, cool and collected - but the players are emerging from the tunnel now and there are bound to be some butterflies on both sides. It's time for the anthems and then battle will commence!


John McGinn: “Is Wembley the perfect game to bounce back with? You could say that. The whole occasion on Monday (ending a 23-year wait to reach a major tournament) is what we've dreamed about since we were young. But there was a wee feeling we've let the nation down because we wanted a positive result. But the breaks didn't go for us. Having analysed it, it definitely could have gone our way, so the confidence is still there.”


This is the first time England and Scotland have met in a major tournament since Euro 96. You've no doubt seen plenty of replays of that Paul Gascoigne wonder goal as England won 2-0, but it's actually 25 years to the day since arguably the Three Lions' finest showing at that tournament. The 4-1 victory over Holland was achieved by a quite brilliant team performance.


Andy Robertson: "I think we're probably respected more now because we've qualified for a tournament but we're still not as respected as much as we would all like. A chance to play against England is a chance to show people that doubt Scottish football what we can do. We gave them a tough game in 2017 and we'll need the same performance levels as that night."

Gareth Southgate: "For the fans and us it is a big occasion but it is another opportunity for three points and our objective is qualification. That is what we have got to focus on. In the past we have done that very well. We did that on Sunday (versus Croatia) which was a big occasion for everyone and we handled it very well."

Steve Clarke: “The objective when we started this tournament was to get enough points to get out of the group stage and into the knockout stage for the first time and we still have that in front of us. So we hope to get something out of the game against England and also we have to get something from the game against Croatia as well. So we look forward to the next two games."

Scotland manager Steve Clarke

Scotland have opted for an exciting line up with four changes from their 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic. Kieran Tierney is back from injury and will feature as part of a back three. There’s also a full debut for Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour in midfield while Callum McGregor also starts. Che Adams comes into the attack after looking sharp as a substitute against the Czechs.


England have made two changes from the side that beat Croatia with Reece James replacing Kyle Walker at right back and Luke Shaw coming in at left back for Kieran Trippier.
