Next group game coming up, and it doesn't get any better than another game at Wembley against the Jocks. This one certainly won't be easy as they will be desperate to get their tournament back on track and they will not need motivation against the auld enemy.

Normal pre-match stuff please, and as per the Croatia game, the thread will double up as the official match thread once the whistle blows. Come on Engerland.

I'll be taking a few days off now until this game but I can't see anything else but an Ingerland win on the horizon.Scotland are certs to finish bottom of the group. :Hilarious:

Don't think there's much reason to change the lineup for this one. Thanks to the best 3rd place system we're pretty much guarenteed entry to the last 16 if we win here, so if we pickup all 3 points we'll be able to rest players in the last group stage match.

Is Harry Kane truly fit? He looks less than 100% in the last game. If so rest him for this.
Play Grealish, we need some creativity, it will be a grind of a game and the Scots will take a point as a very good result for them.

The Scots will be fired up and if they play Adams and Dykes from the off they’ll carry more threat up front. But we’re good enough to beat them and Southgate won’t tinker much. 2-1 win even without Gazza. Just mark McGinn out the game! Job for Phillips and/or Rice?

This is definitely a game to tinker with.

It's been a grueling long season and the Scots will kick our best players.

We have a win under our belts already and second place may be the best spot to finish in this group anyway.

I'd rest key players like Sterling and use this as a game to give players returning from injury like Maguire and Henderson minutes under their belts.

It may be Scotland's cup final but it isn't ours.

We have a win under our belts, so should go out and smash them! 3 nil to us, they dont have the quality to compete with us !

God No, anyone but Henderson. 🤮

I honestly don’t think Southgate will go rogue. He’ll want to get qualification done and dusted Friday, then he might make changes. He won’t be underestimating Scotland.

The Scots are the worst team in the tournement and I don't take great pleasure in saying that because I like to see all the home Nations do well. That said, what's the betting they turn it on, on Friday a get a draw.

You know they’ll up their game! To be honest the Czechs got their tactics spot on. We need to be at them from the start!

Scotland can give most teams a game on their day.
But their (Jocks) best hope is if England beat themselves....I.E...like the game in Glasgow.
Went one up,everybody thought no probs,then suddenly the Jocks are 2-1 up and we are in trouble.We were too cocky as England can be now and then.But keep switched on for the whole game,i expect England will win

My favourite England away shirt will be worn with much reverence today and this evening and will be accompanied with cryptic comments from Mrs RHB about me being too old to wear it these days. I will ignore any barbs and await the demise of the Jocks with anticipation.
