EURO 2020 is rolling on at pace as we reach the conclusion of the group stages!
England, Belgium, Italy, Austria, Netherlands, Wales and Denmark are all through to the knockout rounds.
While all eyes will be on Scotland tonight as they face Croatia in a must-win clash to have any hope of advancing.
England – who face Czech Republic tonight – will have to do with Chelsea stars Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell.
Both players will have to self-isolate until June 28, having come into contact with club team-mate Billy Gilmour after the Three Lions’ draw with Scotland on Friday night.
Gilmour, who won man of the match for his stunning performance at Wembley, has since tested positive for coronavirus following the match.

West Ham’s Declan Rice will collide with club team-mates Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal when England host the Czech Republic tonight.
Rice and Soucek have formed a formidable partnership for West Ham in the heart of their midfield.
The England international, Rice, sits and protects the back four or five depending on David Moyes’ set-up.
And Soucek gets forward into the opposition penalty area and wreaks havoc.
The towering Czech midfielder scored an impressive ten non-penalty league goals from defensive midfield last season, helping West Ham qualify for the Europa League.
To put that into context, that’s more non-penalty goals than Man Utd’s Bruno Fernandes (9).
Coufal also had a fine campaign for West Ham, proving hard to beat in defence and chipped in with seven assists in the league.
The right-back also provided the assist for Patrik Schick’s opener against Scotland.
The Czech pair have a message for their team-mate Rice!
TEAM NEWS: ENGLAND VS CZECH REPUBLIC
Czech Republic don’t have any injury concerns to worry about and will come into the game fresh, ready and raring to go.
Patrik Schick is set to start again while Alex Kral could play in midfield for the Czechs.
Jack Grealish may finally get his start for England but don’t be surprised to see Gareth Southgate stick with the same front four.
Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire could also feature for the Three Lions, having both recovered from injury.
Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell have been placed into ten-day isolation – meaning they will miss tonight’s clash with Czech Republic AND likely England’s last-16 game, writes DUNCAN WRIGHT.
The Chelsea pair have been deemed to be close contacts of Scotland star Billy Gilmour, who tested positive for Covid-19.
The FA say they have taken the advice of Public Health England but this morning were left with no choice but to send them back to St George’s Park.
Though the entire Scotland squad has been cleared to continue playing, the FA were pointed to strict PHE guidelines which state if a person has close contact for more than 15 minutes, then they have to isolate.
It was deemed the conversation Mount and Chilwell had with Gilmour in the tunnel after Friday’s Group D draw was enough to enact those guidelines.
