We’ve already covered the rumours that Chelsea pair Reece James and Ben Chilwell will start alongside Mason Mount for England today – but what about Scotland?
Chelsea wonderkid Billy Gilmour didn’t get on the pitch as his team lost to the Czech Republic in their first group game, but there are growing whispers that he could be in line for a start against England tonight.

Is there any substance to it? Is it just whispers and educated guesses? We’re not sure yet, but we would absolutely love to see him get his first shot at a major tournament in the biggest fixture the Scots have had for years.
It would show their belief in his ability, and the fact that he’s got a bright future, with hundreds of caps ahead for him if everything goes to plan. Tonight could be the a serious international career for Billy, and we can’t wait for those teams to come out.
