Andy Robertson: 'Billy Gilmour has a huge future ahead of him'

The 20-year-old Chelsea midfielder put in a man-of-the-match performance.

Scotland captain Andrew Robertson said there is no limit to Billy Gilmour's potential after the Chelsea midfielder's display in the 0-0 draw with England in Euro 2020.

Gilmour, 20, made his first international start in the Group D clash at Wembley and put in a man-of-the-match performance as Scotland deservedly took a point from their hosts.

Robertson said Gilmour can have a great career but he is already a special talent.

"I spoke to him in the hotel today and I just looked at him, to be fair to Billy nothing fazes him and that is why I believe he can have as many Scotland caps as he wants," the Liverpool defender said on ITV.

"He has got a huge future ahead of him, but the here and now is pretty good as well."

Scotland were worthy of their draw at Wembley and had the better chances as Che Adams missed two good opportunities, Lyndon Dykes had an effort cleared off the line and Jordan Pickford saved well from Stephen O'Donnell.

Robertson said his side deserved to win but have to use this performance to get the win against Croatia that would send them through to the knockout stages.

"I think we did enough to win, I don't think many people can argue with that," he added.

"We had the big chances, at times we kept the ball superbly well and frustrated them and on another night we could have come away with more.

"We will take a point, it keeps us alive, but it's important we use this feeling going into Tuesday and it's important we try and use it to get a positive result which we need to get through the group.

"Credit to the boys in there, a really good result but it is important it is not a pointless result. It is important that we use it to try and get out of this group."

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
