Billy Gilmour produced a performance for the ages for Scotland on Friday night as Steve Clarke’s side earned themselves a point against England at Wembley Stadium.

But the 20-year-old won’t be able to drive his side on to victory against Croatia at Hampden Park and secure their place in the second round, however, after testing positive for Covid.

Croatia struggled against England and the Czech Republic and will be dumped out of the competition if they fail to beat Scotland.
