Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has made four changes, bringing in Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire, Jack Grealish and Bukayo Saka for Reece James, Tyrone Mings, the isolating Mason Mount and Phil Foden, but Phillips retains a midfield berth along with Declan Rice.

England can top the group with a win at Wembley, having already qualified for the last 16. If they do so they will play at home in the first knockout stage, against the Group F runner-up. Germany currently occupy that spot with a round left in their group.

A draw would leave England second, which would mean a clash with the second-placed team in Group E in Copenhagen.

For Scotland only a win over Croatia will do, if they want to extend their stay at the tournament. It's a straight shootout at Hampden Park, whoever wins goes through.

Phillips played both of England's first two group games, setting up Raheem Sterling's winner in the opener against Croatia, while Cooper dropped to the bench after featuring in Scotland's 2-0 defeat by Czech Republic.

England (to face Czech Republic): Pickford, Walker, Shaw, Stones, Maguire, Rice, Phillips, Grealish, Sterling, Saka, Kane.

Scotland (to face Croatia): Marshall, O'Donnell, Robertson, McTominay, Hanley, Tierney, McGinn, McGregor, Dykes, Adams, Armstrong.
