England and Scotland have not met in a competitive tournament fixture since Euro 96 but the old rivalry will be rekindled at Wembley today in this must-watch Euro 2020 match. Don't miss a moment of the action with our England vs Scotland live stream guide.

Scotland will be hoping to use their desire to defeat England above all other rivals in order to bounce back from an opening game defeat at the hands of the Czech Republic.

While the Tartan Army will be pleased to watch their team playing in their first major tournament since 1998, fans at Hampden Park will have been disappointed at the result considering the Scots had the bulk of the possession and more attempts on goal. A Patrik Schick brace, including a long-range stunner, was enough to leave Scotland bottom of Group D after the first matchday.

England recorded a valuable victory in their opening game against Croatia. After being defeated by the Croats in the 2018 World Cup semi-final, Gareth Southgate's men were out for revenge. A single goal from Raheem Sterling was the difference-maker and validated his inclusion in the starting eleven.

The odds are in England's favor today as the higher-ranked team and you'd have to go back to 1999 for the last time the Scots triumphed in this fixture. That being said, anything can happen under the lights at Wembley when these two sides go toe-to-toe.

It's imperative for both sides to get off to a winning start in this tough Group F encounter which sees two of the strongest footballing nations in the world go toe-to-toe.
