Croatia Versus Scotland, England Versus Czech Republic Preview

Denmark thoroughly made the euro championship very interesting and worthwhile yesterday by creating history. I was not too sure whether they could qualify by winning their game yesterday but what I failed to realize was that the two teams they were competing with for second place were on three points and so a win for Denmark will also give them three points. This meant that if the two teams that were already on three points fail to improve on that three points, it will automatically give Denmark the chance to qualify ahead of these two teams if they win and also get three points with a better goal difference. This is exactly what happened yesterday. Denmark will now face Wales in the knockout stages

Today's game includes Croatia versus Scotland, England versus the Czech Republic.

England and the Czech Republic have already qualified regardless of what happens in their game. The battle will be for the supremacy of their group. This is significant because of the likelihood of meeting either Germany, France, Or Portugal in the knock-out stage. This is a game that under normal circumstances England should be winning but the numbers do not favor England and so I will tip the Czech Republic to win or draw this one

Only a win can guarantee qualification for either Scotland or Croatia in their game. I am not too sure why Croatia seems to have struggled a little in the tournament so far. The presence of Gilmour in the Scottish team was significant in their game against England. His absence will be very significant for Scotland in this clash with Croatia. The little bit of extra quality in Croatia should be enough for them to beat Scotland but the problem is that I do not know which Croatia will turn up so I will stick to the numbers go for a Scotland win or draw
