Two European Championship games are set to take place on Tuesday. The group stage will end on Wednesday, and none of the teams in Group D have secured a place in the knockout stage. Let’s take a look at the best players to watch ahead of the action.
The Czech Republic’s Patrick Schick has been surprisingly good in the tournament, and he’s played a big part in getting his team to the top of the table. He’s scored three goals on nine shots. England hasn’t given up a goal yet, though, so the 25-year-old forward will be in for a real test.
England’s defense has been sturdy, but the attack has only yielded one goal. The masses are clamoring for 21-year-old wunderkind Jadon Sancho, who’s yet to play a second in the tournament. England lacks creativity, and the Dortmund winger can provide an abundance of that in his debut.
Croatia has looked disorganized so far and hasn’t won a match. Its top creator, Luka Modric, has had a tough time getting going but is the get to unlocking the attack. The star midfielder is one of the most dangerous players in the world when he gets space and shouldn’t be counted out ahead of a must-win game.
Euro 2021 Tuesday, June 22 schedule
Scotland vs. Croatia
England vs. Czech Republic
Best Bet: Croatia +125
Scotland can still finish in the top two, but needs a win and a lot of help. Being 0-2 ahead of a team that’s loaded with talent in the midfield and at forward bodes well for Croatia. The Scots played up against a rival English squad, but a letdown seems very real and Croatia can still make the knockout stage with a big win and significant goal differential.
