England’s Euro 2020 campaign has been mixed, so far, with an opening game win over Croatia, followed by a disappointing draw against Scotland. Now, the Three Lions face a tough game against Group D table toppers, the Czech Republic.

A win for England would see Gareth Southgate’s side finish as group winners, setting up a tie against the runner-up of Group F.

A draw, however, would mean England finish second in their group.

A second-place finish would result in a tie against either Sweden, Slovakia, Spain, or Poland.

But, if the Three Lions lose against the Czech Republic, they could still face elimination.

Former England boss Glenn Hoddle has backed Phil Foden and Mason Mount to shine for Southgate’s wide on Tuesday night.

“Foden and Mount will be the key players for England, there’s going to be responsibility to create,” he said.

“I don’t think the full-backs will have as much space as they got against Scotland. He might go for Grealish. They’re the type of players who are going to be really important.

“If they’re on their game, bright and inventive, we can open them up.”

England are heavy favourites to beat the Czech Republic at Wembley.

They’re subsequently odds on to top Group D, and face either France, Germany or Portugal in the next round.

The Three Lions have also fallen down in the table of predicted winners.

Despite starting the tournament as joint-favourites to win Euro 2020, they’re now fourth-favourites, behind France, Italy and Germany.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom told Express.co.uk: “England are clear favourites to get their second win of the tournament and finish top of Group D, but they could be tested by a disciplined Czech Republic side.

“As it stands, the Czechs will finish as surprise group winners with a point at Wembley. At odds of 13/5, they might fancy their chances after watching Scotland’s impressive display against England on Friday night.

“England, though, are 4/7 to bounce back from the disappointment of the Scotland stalemate. Harry Kane has been subdued so far at this Euros, but he can be backed at 15/8 to hit the target at least once in each half.

“A more in-form striker is Patrik Schick, a surprise contender for the Golden Boot with three goals to his name already. The Bayer Leverkusen man is 10/1 to score first.

“England have yet to concede a goal and Czech Republic have only let in one, but a more open encounter seems likely and both teams to score is 6/5.”
