“But obviously losing to the Czech Republic was very disappointing and we need to get something at Wembley.

Scotland were beaten 2-0 by the Czech Republic at Hampden Park, Patrik Schick scoring both goals - the second a superb effort from just inside the Scots' half which sailed over goalkeeper David Marshall.

Raheem Sterling's second-half goal gave England a 1-0 win over Croatia at Wembley in the opening group game.
