Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was the only England player to emerge with credit from the goalless draw with Scotland reckons Gary Neville

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was the only England player to emerge from their goalless draw against Scotland with any credit, declared Gary Neville.
Gareth Southgates side produced a lacklustre display as they failed to break down a spirited and disciplined Auld Enemy at Wembley with the Scots producing the better chances in the European Championship stalemate.
Pickford was called upon to make some crucial saves, including a superb stop to deny Stephen ODonnell while Reece James made a goal-line clearance to clear a shot from Lyndon Dykes.
The result leaves England in second place in Group D with four points from two games, trailing leaders Czech Republic on goal difference while both Croatia and Scotland have a point apiece.
The Three Lions now face the Czechs at Wembley at 8pm on Tuesday while Scotland tackle Croatia at Hampden Park at the same time.
Former England international Neville said on ITV Sport : England never won the ball high up the pitch, the three midfielders for Scotland were better on the ball than Englands.

In every single department today I never felt that (Scotland were better than) England.
There was only Jordan Pickford actually. I thought Pickford handled the set-pieces really well, hes the only one that I can think of that played at a level.
All over the pitch, Scotland were better and those physical levels need looking at because that was such a lacklustre display in such a big game.
