The good folks at UEFA are being generous and allowing most Euro 2020 teams to progress to the first knockout round. You’ll need to get your thinking cap on to work out who’ll make it to the last 16, though.

UEFA expanded the classic 16-team format to 24 in 2016 and with six groups of four, you don’t even need to finish in the top two to progress to the next phase of the tournament.

The winners and runners-up in each group are guaranteed a spot in the last 16, while the four third-place teams with the best records will also sail through.

Thanks to UEFA’s generosity, England have already qualified but could still finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd in Group D while Scotland can progress despite failing to score in two games so far.

So there’s plenty to play for in this evening’s final games, with the Czech Republic also through and Croatia hoping to spring into life and make the next round.

The permutations for the Three Lions are fairly straightforward having already qualified after the conclusion of Group B on Monday.

England will definitely top Group D if they beat the Czech Republic. A draw guarantees the runners-up spot.

The only way Gareth Southgate’s men can finish third is if they lose to the Czech Republic and Scotland beat Croatia with a hefty goal swing.

It’s a shootout for Scotland, who must beat Croatia to progress.

Victory over the 2018 World Cup finalists would guarantee a third-place finish although they could beat England to second in the scenario outlined.

A draw with Croatia would not be enough for a lucky loser spot while defeat would mean Steve Clarke’s men finish bottom of Group D.
