Alan Shearer’s Czech Republic v England preview: England need Kane to start scoring
Our Matchday Squad journalist will be covering England throughout Euro 2020
England have to go and try to win this game against the Czech Republic now after their draw against Scotland. They lacked energy and spark in that game on Friday evening and Scotland were the better team overall.
It was a tired performance after all the positivity of the Croatia game but football can do that to you and they now have another very important game coming up.
I think Gareth Southgate will make changes off the back of that and it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see Jack Grealish in the starting XI. England will remain calm, they have four points from two games without conceding a goal, and victory will ensure they stay at Wembley for the last sixteen too.
The area of concern is the final third of the pitch and if England are to go deep in this tournament, they need Kane to start scoring goals.
