And the "Flower of Scotland" rose in Wembley shouted by thousands of Scottish supporters to salute the performance of their team who managed to take their first point in this Euro by resisting against England (0-0. In an intense match, marked by the gesture of the two teams who kneeled before kick-off, this draw and the sharing of points promise an exciting third and final group day. After the draw between the Czech Republic and Croatia a little earlier in the day (1-1), it is indeed two round of 16 that are announced on Tuesday with Croatia-Scotland and Czech Republic-England.
What you must remember
Much was expected of the young English generation, especially after their success against Croatia (1-0).
But if the start of the match with a beautiful header from Stones on the post (12th) and a good movement from Sterling (13th) suggested that Scotland would suffer, it was not afterwards.
In the end, despite having superior ball possession, England struck fewer times on goal (9 against 11).
Without an exceptional cuff from goalkeeper Pickford, O'Donnell would have even given the advantage to Scotland (30th).
Same thing if Adams, alone at the far post, had found the frame on his volley (78th).
The English did try to find the loophole, but never in a constructed way.
