Contemplating the risky text
England exercise real control and relaxation in their opening game as they defeat Croatia at Wembley. A great day for Phillips and Mings as Southgate’s team selection is completely vindicated. And he can afford to not even use Grealish or Sancho.
Netherlands and Ukraine contest the game of the tournament so far as the Dutch win 3-2 in Amsterdam. And an angry Arnautovic seals victory for Austria over North Macedonia. Which is more interesting than their kit or nickname.
Scotland’s first tournament game in 23 years is against the Czech Republic on Monday. The most important game they’ll play in this group stage?
And Spain and Sweden face off in Group E with Morata and Isak both looking to show their worth.
