England v Scotland Match Preview & Trends

Old foes collide with a lot on the line

Much like in Euro ‘96, Wembley will be rocking again as it plays host to a battle of Britain as England take on Scotland in Group D. Steve Clarke will have been mulling over how to get the best out of his players and rejuvenate them after their opening day defeat against the Czech Republic. The history and intensity of this old rivalry may well do his team talk for him as there is no love lost between these two nations.

Gareth Southgate won’t be thinking about knocking Scotland out of the tournament with a win and will be focused on securing the three points that will see his side progress into the next phase with a game to spare. Neither team were particularly impressive in their respective opening games and will have to lift their performance levels significantly for the rest of the tournament should they wish to succeed.

Scotland covered 109.6km against the Czech’s and maintained a passing accuracy of 77% having gained 56% possession. The Scots made 39 passes into the attacking third with 20 of those in key areas. They completed 9/25 crosses, which left them at 36%. In comparison, when England faced Croatia, they covered 100km against the Croat’s and maintained a passing accuracy of 85% having gained 52% possession. The English made 26 passes into the attacking third with 13 of those in key areas. They completed 2/7 crosses, which left them at 29%.

Key trends

Scotland have failed to score in five of their seven Euros matches, with the exceptions being a 3-0 win over CIS (1992) and a 1-0 win against Switzerland (1996)

These sides played out a 2-2 draw in their last encounter, a WC Qualification Europe match at Hampden Park in June 2017.

At 36 years and 101 days, goalkeeper Marshall became the second-oldest player to appear for Scotland at a major tournament
