After picking up a win against Croatia to open up the tournament, England turn their attention to a Scotland side who were somehow both outclassed and incredible unlucky in their opening game of Euro 2020.

The real question that’s on everybody’s mind for this game will be who spends more time in midfield, Kalvin Phillips for England or Scottish ‘goalkeeper’ David Marshall, who decided he wanted to get into the thick of it up the field before suffering a humiliating lob by Patrik Schick and then being eaten alive by his own net!

Scotland will be looking to bounce back after having shots ping off of every obstacle possible in their loss to Czech Republic and bring an upset home to Hampden. However, it looks like phase two of Project: It’s Coming Home is destined for success.

Friday 20:00 – England v Scotland
ITV/RTE2

England to Win

It has to happen, surely it must. Marshall is 36 years old and dealing with a heat-seeking missile from Harry Kane may prove tricky. He made some high-quality stops in the opener, but England have significantly more firepower than the Czechs. England and Scotland have faced off 114 times, with England coming out as winners on 48 of those occasions.

Over 2.5 Goals

Southgate’s style of management doesn’t quite lend itself to handing out high scoring drubbings, a more defensive orientation that even has Kane playing deeper than anybody would genuinely like to see. That said, since 2013 England have faced Scotland four times and their contests have never seen fewer than three goals.

Lyndon Dykes 1 or more shots on target

Scotland forward Lyndon Dykes had two shots on target against the Czech defence and was perhaps unlucky not to score. Granted, England are slightly stronger at the back, but expect to see Dykes create opportunities for the visitors here.

John McGinn 2 or more shots

Be it at Aston Villa or for Scotland, John McGinn loves a pop on goal. He doesn’t always find the target – although plenty will remember his outrageous bicycle kick against Austria in March. He fired off four shots against Czech Republic with none on target, and lucky for you they don’t need to be between the sticks to feature in your Bet Builder!

Harry Kane to Score

We’re expecting Kane to, you know, actually touch the ball in this game. Kane had fewer touches than any starting player for either side in the England v Croatia game, bar Ante Rebic. We’re expecting to see him burst onto the scene and fly through the Scottish defence like a kilt on a windy day in Edinburgh.
