7:00 pm: And the Czech Republic starts at 11 …
Czech Republic XI: Vaclik, Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril, Holes, Soucek, Masopust, Darida, Jankto, Schick
Czech Republic Bench: Koubek, Mandous, Kaderabek, Brabec, Barak, Krmencik, Sevcik, Hlozek, Vydra, Kral, Mateju, Pekhart
6:50 pm: The big issue then is that Sancho is back on the bench and Foden isn’t on the team at all.
You can hear more about whether a Manchester City man was injured when Southgate spoke to the broadcaster before the match.

6:30 pm: And the England team officially …
England XI: Pickford; Walker, Magwire, Stones, Shaw; Philips, Rice, Grealish; Slope, Cain, Sterling
England Bench: Johnstone, Ramsdale, Mings, White, Coady, James, Trippier, Bellingham, Henderson, Sancho, Rashford, Calvert-Lewin
So there are actually four changes from the Scottish draw, with Mings, James, Mount and Foden dropping out to Maguire, Walker, Grealish and Saka.
Arsenal’s versatile attacker Saka wants to be broad at first and inject more energy and dynamism than his teammates showed him last Friday night.
Perhaps the only player who missed 23 from a team of 26 because Mount and Chilwell aren’t available is Foden, who is just resting.
6:20 pm: Just a while ago “Leaked” team news England boss Gareth Southgate has proposed sticking to Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling on either side of goalless frontman Harry Kane.
However, it is believed that Jack Grealish is also ready to start while Harry Maguire is able to kick Tyrone Mings out in the center back.
Jadon Sancho starts on a surrogate bench that hasn’t played a minute of the tournament yet.
Chilwell hasn’t been featured in the euro yet, and Southgate has Luke Shaw, Kieran Trippier, and even Bukayo Saka as options for that position.
A fully confirmed lineup is expected shortly-and you’ll see how many changes Southgate will make from the Scottish draw.
6:15 pm: England missed Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell tonight, leaving Chelsea’s pair isolated.
The duo have been in close contact with Scotland’s Billy Gilmour after the match against the midfielder on Friday night since the coronavirus test was positive.
They will be quarantined for 10 days. This means it may not be available in the last 16 ties of next week.
The FA confirmed on Tuesday morning: “Chilwell and Mount will be individually isolated and trained in the private area of St. George’s Park, England’s training base, and the rest of the team will return after the match against the Czech Republic in Wembley tonight.
“We will continue to adhere to all Covid-19 protocols and UEFA testing regimes in close contact with PHE.
“England and all staff performed immunochromatography on Monday and everything was negative again, as was the case with the UEFA pre-match PCR test on Sunday. Further tests will be conducted if necessary.”
6:00 pm: Good evening, welcome to the live coverage of Express Sports in England’s last Euro 2020 Group D match against the Czech Republic in Wembley.
The Gareth Southgate team, which defeated Croatia but drew with Scotland, are already in the euro knockout stage.
From the 6 groups, the 4 best 3rd place teams advanced to the last 16 and Ukraine and Finland finished 3rd in the group with 3 points each on Monday night.
So even if England finishes in 3rd place tonight, even if they lose and Scotland wins, England will make progress.
Tonight’s opponent, the Czech Republic, defeated Scotland and drew with Croatia, but outperformed England due to the excellent goal difference.
