Capacity: 54,990 |  reduced to 25% capacity, subject to increase
Games: Group stage, last 16, semi-finals & final (eight games)

Wembley Stadium.

Wembley will host a total of eight matches at Euro 2020 including a last-16 game, the semi-finals and the final. It will also be the scene of three games in Group D, where it shares hosting duties with Scotland’s Hampden Park.

The London venue was initially only supposed to host the semi-finals and final, but was assigned an extra four games following the exclusion of Brussels as a host city and another one when Dublin was removed as a host.

Rebuilt in 2007, it is one of the biggest football stadiums in the world and second only to Barcelona’s Camp Nou in terms of Europe’s biggest arenas.

England vs Scotland: Team news & key stats

Euro 2020 Top 100 Kieran Tierney

Dean Henderson has withdrawn from the England squad as he struggled with a hip problem, while Harry Maguire is expected to play some part against Scotland after missing out in the opening game.

Scotland’s Kieran Tierney will be hoping to start after missing the opener against the Czech Republic due to a long-standing calf injury, with Che Adams also pushing for a place in the line-up following his positive impact from the bench at Hampden Park.

Key stats:

  • This will be the 115th match between England and Scotland, and their 100th in a competitive fixture. Their only previous meeting at a major tournament was in the group stages of Euro 1996, also at Wembley; England won 2-0, with goals from Alan Shearer and Paul Gascoigne. Current England head-coach Gareth Southgate played all 90 minutes.
  • The four games played between England and Scotland this century have produced 16 goals (11 for England, 5 for Scotland), an average of four goals per match.
  • Scotland have the highest expected goals tally of any of the four sides in Group D so far (1.9). However, they were unable to convert any of their 19 attempts in their MD1 defeat to Czech Republic.
