Scotland put in a fine performance to earn a 0-0 draw against old rivals England in Group D at Wembley.
Steve Clarke’s side were the better team in London and might have snuck a win with some better finishing.
The Three Lions were insipid and missed out on the chance to book their spot in the last 16.
In the other Group D game, Croatia and Czech Republic drew 1-1 at Hampden Park, with Patrik Schick’s penalty cancelled out by Ivan Perisic’s fine goal.
Emil Forsberg’s second-half penalty for Sweden ensure they took a huge step towards the next stage as they top Group E on four points.

He’s going home
The recovery of Christian Eriksen has been a heartwarming tale in recent days after his cardiac arrest in Denmark’s opening game against Finland at the weekend. The Inter Milan midfielder was discharged from hospital on Friday and even went to see his team-mates at the training camp.
4 – Ivan Perisic has scored in each of the last four major international tournaments (2014 World Cup, EURO 2016, 2018 World Cup and EURO 2020), becoming the first Croatian to score in four separate such tournaments. Rocket. #CRO#EURO2020pic.twitter.com/vlkh8gsfY4— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 18, 2021
