England started their preparations for a last 16 showdown against Germany at Wembley, while Wales set off for Amsterdam

After watching a dramatic final night of the Euro 2020 group stage play out, England's focus now sharpens towards next week's last-16 showdown against Germany at Wembley.

Defender Harry Maguire trained away from the main group on Thursday morning, following an individual programme indoors.

The Manchester United captain continues to manage his recovery from ankle ligament damage, having played the full 90 minutes of the 1-0 win over the Czech Republic which secured top spot in Group D.

Chelsea duo Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount remain in self-isolation after being flagged as close contacts of club-mate Billy Gilmour, the Scotland midfielder having tested positive for Covid-19 three days after the goalless draw with England at Wembley.

Elsewhere, Wales left their Rome base for Amsterdam – the third country visited by Robert Page's squad at Euro 2020 – ahead of their clash with Denmark at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

Italy will also be looking to book their place in the quarter-finals as they meet Austria at Wembley when the business end of the tournament gets under way on Saturday.
