Winger seals victory over Czech Republic but Scotland are knocked out after defeat

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling scored his second goal of UEFA Euro 2020 as England claimed a 1-0 victory over the Czech Republic.

Sterling, who also scored the winner against Croatia last week, headed home at the back post on 12 minutes after a fine cross from Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish.

Arsenal's Bukayo Saka impressed after being brought into the side and claimed the man of the match award.

The victory means England top Group D and they will now play the team finishing second in Group F. Their opponents will be known after Germany face Hungary and Portugal take on France on Wednesday.

That last-16 contest takes place at Wembley Stadium next Tuesday.

The Czech Republic, containing West Ham United duo Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek, have also qualified in third place.

In Glasgow, a Scotland team featuring Grant Hanley, Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney, Stuart Armstrong, John McGinn, Scott McTominay and Che Adams were knocked out after losing 3-1 to Croatia.
