KEIR RADNEDGE REPORTS: Changes will be forced on England manager Gareth Southgate, like it or not, for the Group D showdown at the Euro 2020 finals with the Czech Republic at Wembley.

The Chelsea pair Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount have both been placed in isolation up to and including next Monday after coming into close contact with Scotland’s Billy Gilmour after the goalless draw at Wembley on Sunday.

This means they are almost certain to miss England’s round of 16 tie, whether on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday.

Chilwell and Mount will will miss Tuesday’s final Euro 2020 group game against the Czech Republic just as Gilmour will miss Scotland’s final game against Croatia at Hampden Park, Glasgow.

England, with four points, are certain to qualify for the round of 16 even if they lose and finish third in the group.

An FA statement said:

We can confirm that Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount must isolate up to and including next Monday [28 June]. This decision has been taken in consultation with Public Health England.

The pair were confirmed overnight as close contacts of Scotland’s Billy Gilmour after his positive test following last Friday’s match.

Chilwell and Mount will isolate and train individually in private areas at England’s training base St. George’s Park, with the rest of the squad returning there after tonight’s fixture against Czech Republic at Wembley.

We will continue to follow all Covid-19 protocols and the UEFA testing regime, while remaining in close contact with PHE.

The entire England squad and staff had lateral flow tests on Monday and all were again negative, as was the case with Sunday’s UEFA pre-match PCR tests.

Further tests will be carried out as and when appropriate.
