No games until 8pm this evening, which is an absolute pain. But then it's England and Scotland, both affected by a few self isolations (somehow England more than Scotland, despite the Scotland player being positive - not sure how that works).

Tough ask for Scotland to beat Croatia, but not out of the question.

England probably need a good performance more than the result against the Czechs. Bellingham might start with Mount out, which should be fun.

Nice that there's no real pressure, and in some ways not finishing top could be an 'easier' route anyway.

But you can't really play to the next round draw.

Like you say, let's hope it's a good performance

I’m not even bothered about a ‘good’ performance. Just something to show we have other ideas.

We’ve created one decent chance in two games. Luckily we scored that and Croatia offered nothing. If we were still playing Scotland now we wouldn’t have scored.

I’d like to see the entire front 4 changed tonight.

I'm not convinced we have any other ideas to be honest, but I agree with you. Tonight is a free hit so will be interesting to see what we do. I'm probably going to watch the Scotland game live anyway as something hinges on that.

I would change it around tonight, probably a good game to give Henderson 60 minutes as well

Keep the fullbacks the same but let them get forward tonight. I think despite being poor the other night i would still play sterling as he has earnt keeping his pace to be fair

He has already said that Kane will play, but I could easily see Grealish, Rashford and Sancho coming in for Mount, Foden, Sterling.  I think he will give a run out for Henderson over Rice/Philips and I think he will give Maguire a run out over Mings (even though that seems harsh).

I’d go 3 at the back and bin off the full backs completely.

Pickford

Stones
Maguire
Mings

Phillips
Bellingham

Sancho
Grealish
Saka

Rashford
DCL


Something completely different.

I definitely want Maguire and Henderson playing in this game - don't want either returning from injury in a knockout game if we can at all avoid it.

Isn't Mount isolating anyway so assume he won't be playing.

No one has actually decided yet - it's farcical.

He's "isolating" as a precaution, not because PHE have told him to. The players who actually shared a changing room, bus, hotel room etc aren't. Figure that out.

Anyway. Move to a 433. Rice, Mount, Grealish. Sancho, Kane, Foden.

I would agree with that just switch Henderson for Rice for me

Mount and Chilwell doing a full 10 day isolation until next Monday, out for today and highly unlikely for Round 2 as well.

Simply don't understand how it's just those two and not any of the Scots.

If he's fit, for sure.

What the hell is the point in testing etc? Give them a PCR test, move on. Absolutely ridiculous.

How were they any closer than any other player on either side.
