England and Scotland will meet in a major tournament for the first time in 25 years on Friday in a mouthwatering contest, which will have huge implications on both nations' Euro 2020 hopes. England started strongly as they beat Croatia 1-0 on Sunday but Scotland were beaten 2-0 by the Czech Republic.
Sterling and Phil Foden are likely to again join Harry Kane in attack. While Luke Shaw could come in for Kieran Trippier at left back.
Southampton striker Che Adams is in line for a start after he impressed against Czech Republic, where he came off the bench.
The Scots need to win or draw against England as they will not be able to finish in the top two if they lose to England and the Czech Republic get a result against Croatia. For England, three points will confirm a place in the knockout stage. So, this match will be crucial for both the teams.
Tottenham forward Harry Kane had an underwhelming outing against Croatia and the England skipper will be fired up to get into the goals against Scotland. England have no shortage of attacking options with a power-packed forward line consisting of some of world’s best attackers. The best captain and vice-captain choices for this match will be Sterling, Kane, Che Adams, Mount and Phil Foden.
