England welcome the Czech Republic to Wembley this evening in their final fixture of the Euro 2020 group stage as Gareth Southgate’s side look to rediscover their attacking form ahead of the knockout rounds.
Patrick Schick is joint top-scorer at the tournament so far after netting three goals, including his record-breaking long-range effort against Scotland in the 2-0 win.
The draw saw England move to four points in Group D, effectively confirming their place in the knockout stages, and the outcome of tonight’s match will determine where Southgate’s side finish in the table. Victory against the Czechs would see England top the group and would set up a last-16 meeting with either France, Germany or Portugal, depending on who finishes as the runner-up in Group F, while a draw against the Group D leaders would result in England finishing second. Defeat could see England finish in third but it would depend on results elsewhere, with Scotland hosting Croatia in the other fixture in Group D.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Group D decider.

The match will kick off at 8:00 pm BST on Tuesday 22 June.
