England secured Euro 2020 progress as Group D winners with victory over Czech Republic and now enter the knockout stages.

Gareth Southgate’s side took seven points from the three games, with Raheem Sterling’s goal enough to win at Wembley on Tuesday night.

So who is next? Here we look at Euro 2020 permutations including who England could play next.

When is England’s next game – and who could they play?

After winning their group, England will face the runner-up in Group F at Wembley next Tuesday at 5pm. We do not yet know who will sit in second, but will find out on Wednesday night. Here’s how it stands:

Final Group F fixtures this Wednesday

  • Germany v Hungary (Munich, 8pm)
  • Portugal v France (Budapest, 8pm)

So, who could they play?

What would England’s route to the final be from here?

With victory, England would be in the last quarter-final against either the winner of group E (looking likely to be Sweden) vs one of four third-place finishers. A semi-final with Netherlands could be in store, before a final against France.

What TV channel is it on?

It will be either BBC or ITV, with the full details yet to be decided.

What is the latest England team news?

England may have qualified for the last-16 but their plans have been thrown into chaos after the positive Covid-19 test for Scotland’s Billy Gilmour on Monday. Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell have been forced to self-isolate over a potential breach of coronavirus protocols that involved chatting to the Scotland midfielder in the Wembley tunnel on Friday.

The FA has confirmed Mount and Chilwell will have to isolate until June 28, so while they might be available for England’s last-16 tie it seems unlikely that they will start, as they would not be able to prepare for the game at all with their team-mates or work on any tactics or team shape.

Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson did return to action in the win over Czech Republic, however, as Gareth Southgate gets closer to having a fully fit squad to choose from.
