Azrieli Group buys Norwegian data centers co for NIS 2.3b

Azrieli Group buys Norwegian data centers co for NIS 2.3b

Azrieli Group Ltd., controlled by Danna Azrieli, is expanding its data centers activity. The company reported today that it had signed an agreement to acquire a privately held company in this field in Norway, Trend reports with reference to Globes.

Azrieli Group will buy 100% of the shares in Green Mountain for NIS 2.285 billion. Green Mountain was founded in in 2009. In 2020, it posted a loss of NIS 6 million, despite 18% growth in its revenue to NIS 71 million.

The acquired company has three main activities: design and construction of server farms with high levels of data security; provision of advanced server farm services to enterprises and wholesale customers; and operating efficient server farms using power from renewable sources only.

Green Mountain operates three server farms in Norway. It also has potential for future construction and development on these and other sites, amounting to 520 MW. According to Azrieli Group, the data centers market in Scandinavia in general and in Norway in particular is enjoying high rates of growth thanks to the unusual availability of electricity produced from environmentally friendly sources and to costs of electricity that are among the lowest in Europe.

Azrieli Group is Israel’s largest real estate company, with a market cap of some NIS 30 billion. The company says that the acquisition of Green Mountain is part of its growth strategy, in which in recent years it has added server farms to its activities.

“The acquisition of Green Mountain is an important milestone in realizing Azrieli Group’s strategy of building international activity in data centers,” Danna Azrieli said. “The combination of the activity in North America through Compass and the acquisition of Green Mountain in Europe will enable Azrieli Group to become a significant player in this growing and developing arena. Data centers represent the new world of income-producing real estate, and are benefitting from high rates of growth.”

Azrieli Group will finance the acquisition from its own resources, including part of the proceeds of a NIS 3.7 billion bond offering that is currently in the process of making. In addition, it will act to secure a specific loan for up to 50% of the deal price through a subsidiary in Norway or Green Mountain.

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, USA, July 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of South Carolina is dedicated to providing the best possible legal and medical assistance to those stricken with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal and/or medical options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with an attorney from The Steinberg Law Group.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of South Carolina has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their vast experience in handling mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps win the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Typically, asbestos exposure will have occurred sometime between the 1950s and the 1980s. Some of the most prevalent professions that encountered large quantities of asbestos include power plant workers, maritime workers, industrial workers, plumbers, pipefitters, electricians, mechanics, machinists, miners, railroad workers and construction workers, to name a few. Since the latency period for mesothelioma patients is approximately 40 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2020 were exposed decades ago.

Although the risk of exposure to asbestos in South Carolina used to be a lot worse, vermiculite ore, which can often be contaminated with asbestos, is still mined in the northwest region of the state. In addition, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, South Carolina has 8 known asbestos deposits.

Since the latency period for mesothelioma patients is approximately 40 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2020 were exposed decades ago.

North Carolina as a state has a long history of exposure to asbestos. From naturally occurring asbestos around the Appalachian Mountain range, to vermiculite-processing plants in Franklin County, Sanford and Spruce Pine, to asbestos-contaminated talc mines, one of the reasons residents of North Carolina have a higher incidence of mesothelioma than the national average is due simply to the abundancy of the mineral in the state. North Carolina’s large military bases and industrial worksites are also a major source of potential asbestos exposure for residents of the state.

Haiti says 26 Colombians, two Haitian Americans among group that killed president

Haiti says 26 Colombians, two Haitian Americans among group that killed president

A heavily armed commando unit that assassinated Haitian President Jovenel Moise was composed of 26 Colombians and two Haitian Americans, authorities said on Thursday, as the hunt went on for the masterminds of the killing, Trend reports citing Reuters.

Moise, 53, was fatally shot early on Wednesday at his home by what officials said was a group of foreign, trained killers, pitching the poorest country in the Americas deeper into turmoil amid political divisions, hunger and widespread gang violence.

Authorities tracked the suspected assassins on Wednesday to a house near the scene of the crime in Petionville, a northern, hillside suburb of the capital, Port-au-Prince. A firefight lasted late into the night and authorities detained a number of suspects on Thursday.

Police Chief Charles Leon paraded 17 men before journalists at a news conference late on Thursday, showing a number of Colombian passports, plus assault rifles, machetes, walkie-talkies and materials including bolt cutters and hammers.

“Foreigners came to our country to kill the president,” Charles said. “There were … 26 Colombians, identified by their passports … and two Haitian Americans as well.”

He said 15 Colombians were captured, as well as two Haitian Americans. Three of the assailants were killed and eight remained on the run, Charles said.

Colombian Defense Minister Diego Molano said in a statement that preliminary information indicated that Colombians involved in the attack were retired members of the country’s military. He said Bogota would cooperate in the investigation.

Haiti’s minister of elections and interparty relations, Mathias Pierre, identified the Haitian-American suspects as James Solages, 35, and Joseph Vincent, 55.

A State Department spokesman could not confirm if any U.S. citizens were among those detained, but U.S. authorities were in regular contact with Haitian officials, including investigative authorities, to discuss how the United States could provide assistance.


Officials in the mostly French- and Creole-speaking Caribbean nation had said on Wednesday the assassins appeared to have spoken in English and Spanish.

“It was a full, well-equipped commando, with more than six cars and a lot of equipment,” Pierre said.

Officials have not yet given a motive for the killing. Since taking office in 2017, Moise had faced mass protests against his rule – first over corruption allegations and his management of the economy, then over his increasing grip on power.

An angry crowd gathered on Thursday morning to watch the police operation unfold, with some setting fire to the suspects’ cars and to the house where they had hunkered down. Bullets were strewn in the street.

“Burn them!” shouted some of the hundreds of people outside the police station where the suspects were being held.

Charles said the local population had helped police track down the suspects, but he implored residents in the sprawling seafront city of 1 million people not to take justice into their own hands.

A 15-day state of emergency was declared on Wednesday to help authorities apprehend the killers. But interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph said on Thursday it was time for the economy to reopen and that he had given instructions for the airport to restart operations.

Heart rate chart: What should YOUR exercising heart rate be? Key levels per age group

Heart rate chart: What should YOUR exercising heart rate be? Key levels per age group

Often we don’t think about our hearts beating away in our chests, as it does so quietly and typically without cause for concern. However checking your heart rate can often give indications for a range of illnesses, the general health of your body and even your fitness levels. So what should YOUR exercising heart rate be?

Having a healthy heart means the right amount of blood is making its way around your body to support anything you are doing.

This means when you exercise your heart rate increases, in order to supply your muscles with the blood they need.

You can measure your heart rate a number of ways, with the typical way being to hold two fingers on your wrist.

Smartwatches can also measure heart rate, helping you to monitor your resting and active heart rate.

Read More: High blood pressure: The warm beverage that can raise your reading

For adults, this is different, with the normal resting heart rate range being between 60 and 100 bpm.

If you have a resting heart rate that lies outside of the normal resting heart rate range – you can sometimes experience symptoms like shortness of breath, dizziness and fatigue.

If you are concerned about your heart rate and experience any symptoms, book an appointment with your GP.

However, the resting heart rate range comes with caveats, as having a heart rate lower than 60 doesn’t necessarily mean you have a medical problem.

What should your exercising heart rate be?

When exercising, there are limits for where your heart rate should fall depending on exertion levels and these are

Age 20

  • 50 to 85 percent exertion – 100 to 170bpm
  • 100 percent exertion – 200bpm

Age 30

  • 50 to 85 percent exertion – 95 to 162bpm
  • 100 percent exertion – 190bpm

Age 35

  • 50 to 85 percent exertion – 93 to 157bpm
  • 100 percent exertion – 185bpm

Age 40

  • 50 to 85 percent exertion – 90 to 153bpm
  • 100 percent exertion – 180bpm

Devices like smartwatches can measure your exercising heart rate, and to ensure your heart keeps healthy the NHS recommends 10 things you can do day to day.

1. Give up smoking

2. Get active

3. Manage your weight

4. Eat more fibre

5. Cut down on saturated fat

6. Get your five a day

7. Cut down on salt

8. Eat fish

9. Drink less alcohol

10. Read the food label – watch how calories and certain foods fit in with your diet

Houston group home operator warned of safety violations weeks before deadly fire, HPD says

Houston group home operator warned of safety violations weeks before deadly fire, HPD says
HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Last year, the operator of a group home was warned about major fire safety violations two weeks before the fire that killed a resident, court records show.

Felicia Ekpouko, 63, is charged with injury to an elderly or disabled individual by omission, which is considered a felony. She is being held in jail and is expected to make her first court appearance Friday morning.

The fire happened on Aug. 11, 2020, at 6111 Gladewell in the Alief area. The Houston Fire Department said seven people were living there at the time, and several of them had special needs.

RELATED: 1 killed in fire at group home for people with special needs in SW Houston

The victim killed in the fire was Charles A. Dunn, who was described in court documents as one of society’s most vulnerable, “deaf-mute, elderly and physically disabled.” The 68-year-old did not make it out of the house and police believe he may have never known there was a fire.

Records show Ekpouko was warned on July 28, 2020, about a slew of safety violations. She was cited by HPD Boarding Home Enforcement Unit Officers for at least five violations, which included having a deadbolt on the front door, fire extinguishers that had not been inspected annually as required by law, and no visual smoke alarms that would warn a hearing-impaired resident, like Dunn, of a fire.

Dunn died from smoke inhalation and was “still in bed,” when firefighters found him, records said. In the meantime, the other six residents “were in a panic” at the front door, which was locked with a deadbolt. They were finally able to escape through a side door.

Ekpouko does not yet have an attorney of record.

According to court documents, when investigators asked Ekpouko, who admitted to operating group homes in Houston for 12 years, why she did not correct the problems, she told them it was “on her list of things to do” but could not because of “coronavirus.”

England 1-0 Czech Republic LIVE: Live updates

Euro 2020: England and Scotland set for final group games

England 1-0 Czech Republic LIVE

  • England put into last 16 of Euro 2020 on Monday night after Denmark win
  • Three Lions go through as Group D winners thanks to Raheem Sterling‘s 12th-minute goal vs Czechs
  • Bukayo Saka and Jack Grealish star after coming into Gareth Southgate‘s starting eleven
  • Jordan Henderson has late goal disallowed for offside
  • England XI: Pickford; Walker, Maguire, Stones (Mings), Shaw; Phillips, Rice (Henderson), Grealish (Bellingham); Saka (Sancho), Kane, Sterling (Rashford)
  • Czech Republic XI: Vaclik, Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril, Holes (Vydra), Soucek, Masopust (Hlozek), Darida (Kral), Jankto (Sevcik), Schick (Pekhart)

9.50pm: There we have it then, England top their group and will face one of France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary at Wembley next Tuesday night.

The Three Lions are unbeaten and have yet to concede a single goal, although Sterling – with two – is their only scorer thus far.

Elsewhere in Group D, Scotland lose 3-1 to Croatia in Glasgow and they finish bottom with a single point.

Croatia go through second thanks to their victory while Czech Republic are third but make the next round after picking up four points from their three matches.

FT: ENGLAND 1-0 CZECH REPUBLIC (STERLING 12′) – England WIN Group D

90+1 mins: Kral fires a shot into the atmosphere from distance. Czech Republic will be disappointed they’ve not posed more problems in this second half.

86 mins: DISALLOWED GOAL! Gutting for Jordan Henderson. The Liverpool skipper fires in from close-range after Bellingham’s touch finds him a few yards from goal.

There’s brief celebrations as Henderson thinks he’s got his first ever England goal to make it 2-0… but he’s miles offside, as VAR rightly confirms.

83 mins: Sancho is on! This is not a drill! The Dortmund winger will get a few minutes to impress as he takes the place of Saka to huge cheers.

Matej Vydra, the Burnley striker, is on for the Czechs. That’s all five subs made by both nations.

82 mins: Pekhart turns and fires wide after being found by Soucek.

England 1-0 Czech Republic LIVE

81 mins: The cameras show Sancho warming up on the touchline. Surely he’s going to get a few minutes here… right?!

England fans are taking the chance to mock Scotland’s imminent Euro 2020 exit. “Cheer up Steve Clarke, oh what can it be…” You probably know the rest.

79 mins: Here comes a fourth England change – but it’s Mings coming on rather than an attacker and he replaces Stones.

More bad news for Scotland at Hampden Park meanwhile as Ivan Perisic heads in from a Modric corner. Croatia will go through as the second-placed team as it stands, because their goal difference is better than Czech Republic’s.

76 mins: Czech Republic top scorer Schick is off for Tomas Pekhart. England boss Southgate can still make another two subs, with Sancho and Calvert-Lewin among those still hoping to get on.

74 mins: Maguire drives forward and prods it to Bellingham in the box but Holes gets across to force a corner. Shaw fails to beat the first man with the set-piece.

73 mins: Not as quick a tempo now as there was in the first half and at the start of this second period but that probably suits England.

Phillips searches for Saka with a long ball but Vaclik can gather. If it stays like this, England will play their last 16 match at Wembley next Tuesday.

If they draw, they’ll be in action on Monday in Copenhagen instead against the runner-up of Group E, which currently would be Slovakia, who play Spain in their final match tomorrow.

England vs Czech Republic LIVE

69 mins: Maguire wants a penalty after going down inside the box at a free-kick but the referee waves it away. Replays show there was a hand in the back from Boril but it’s probably not enough for a spot-kick.

66 mins: A double substitution for England – but still no Sancho. Marcus Rashford and Jude Bellingham enter the fray in place of Sterling and Grealish.

64 mins: Another pair of Czech Republic changes, as Alex Kral and Adam Hlozek – linked to Liverpool – come on.

There’s then huge cheers in Wembley. Why? Because it’s Scotland 1-2 Croatia, with Luka Modric scoring a brilliant goal. The Scots need two goals now.

61 mins: Boril picks up a yellow card for bringing down Saka from behind. He’ll miss the Czechs’ last 16 match as a result.

Stones meets Saka’s delivery from the following free-kick but there’s an offside flag raised so England won’t get their corner.

59 mins: Pickford is on alert to punch clear a threatening Coufal cross, and Henderson clears from the edge of the England box.

55 mins: Boril does well to get to Kane’s headed flick-on first before Sterling. England were almost in there and again it all came from a Pickford long ball.

England vs Czech Republic LIVE

England vs Czech Republic LIVE (Image: GETTY)

53 mins: Good defensive positioning by Saka to cut out a Shick cross into the back post with Jan Boril threatening to run on to it. Impressing all over the pitch.

50 mins: Kane, with space between the two centre-halves as he breaks into the box, stretches to lift a lofted Henderson ball but it just evades him and the Czechs are able to clear through Coufal.

46 mins: Jordan Henderson comes on for England. The Liverpool captain replaces West Ham’s Rice in central midfield.

The Czechs also make a half-time change as midfielder Petr Sevcik comes on in place of Jankto.

SECOND-HALF – we’re back in action at Wembley!

HT: The ITV half-time analysis…

Ian Wright: “Saka my guy! This is what he’s been doing at Arsenal all season, getting us out of holes by being positive and going forward. It’s fantastic, I’m delighted for him.

“Between Saka, Grealish and Sterling, they’ve been magnificent and ran them ragged.”

Gary Neville: “They’ve been a breath of fresh air. They look like they’ve enjoyed themselves. They’re fearless. It’s what England fans want to see, taking the ball, running with it, committing defenders, winning free-kicks.”

Roy Keane: “What they’ve brought is plenty of energy and they’ve obviously got that quality as well. They do this every week. Excellent.”

England vs Czech Republic LIVE

HT: A solid first 45 minutes for England, there. Much, much better than served up against Scotland, with the ingenuity and dynamism of Saka and Grealish bringing plenty to the side.

Czech Republic have showcased their threat too to be fair, and cannot be counted out. England might need another goal to be sure of the three points.

HT: ENGLAND 1-0 CZECH REPUBLIC (STERLING 12′) – So far, so good for the Three Lions

44 mins: Jubilant scenes north of the border as Callum McGregor pulls Scotland level with a fine strike. If they can get another, they’ll be in the next round.

As it stands, both Croatia and Scotland are headed out of the Euros.

40 mins: A dangerous Saka cross is hoofed out of the box by Ondrej Celustka. England are looking so much more vibrant and fluid in attack tonight.

38 mins: Pickford finds Grealish in space with a lovely chipped ball forward. The playmaker plays it to Kane, who looks to pick out Sterling with a cross which is well intercepted.

37 mins: England respond with pressure of their own and they put together a well-knit move that sees Vaclik have to push Shaw’s deflected cross wide.

Yet again that came from a Saka run down the right. The Arsenal man the clear stand-out performer thus far.

35 mins: SO CLOSE! Czech Republic almost make it 1-1 as Soucek curls a shot just wide of Pickford’s goal from the edge of the area.

That chance came after Shaw excellently blocked Jakub Jankto’s volleyed effort with a stooping header.

England vs Czech Republic LIVE

England vs Czech Republic LIVE (Image: GETTY)

33 mins: Saka really leading the way for England as he bursts down the right after linking up with Kane and his attempted cross for Sterling wins a corner.

This time Phillips takes it but Coufal heads clear and the ball is forced back to Pickford.

29 mins: Soucek sees a shot blocked after a Czech Republic corner drops invitingly for him. A nervy moment for Southgate’s back-line but they got the bodies around the ball to thwart the danger and Maguire eventually hooks clear.

27 mins: A great diving save from Pickford as he flies across his goal to push Tomas Holes’ shot wide with two hands. That effort was headed in.

25 mins: IT SHOULD BE 2-0! A sublime through ball from Maguire sets Kane through and rather than try it on his left, he checks inside to hit a right-footed shot but Vaclik gets a big left hand to it to deny him.

Had he not been chasing a first goal he might’ve squared to Sterling. Still, first shot on target of the tournament and all that for the Tottenham frontman. Progress.

23 mins: On the pitch, a tasty Czech cross is teased into the England box but good positioning from Kyle Walker to chest it down to Jordan Pickford.

Going forward, Saka’s looking really lively for the home side.

19 mins: Cheers inside Wembley – and that’s because it’s Scotland 0-1 Croatia at Hampden Park thanks to Nikola Vlasic’s goal.

“Scotland’s going home,” chants inside Wembley too. The England fans pretty happy at their neighbours’ plight.

Scotland need to win tonight to make it into the next round. As it stands they’ll prop up Group D with a single point. Czech Republic and Croatia currently sit second and third both on four points.

15 mins: Superb work from the two new boys Saka and Grealish there. A lovely goal and England are bursting with confidence as Grealish wins a free-kick high up the pitch.

Saka takes it but his delivery fails to beat the first man, Coufal. It deflects for a corner but Shaw’s ball in is uninspiring and no team-mate can get on the end of it.

Arsenal’s Saka looks as though he was fouled on the edge of the box as he tried to make something of the corner but the referee isn’t giving it. A strange one.

12 mins: GOAAALLLL!!! ENGLAND LEAD 1-0 – RAHEEM STERLING!

Great work from Saka drives England up the pitch. His cross from the right-hand side is too heavy but Grealish collects it at the back stick and chips it back across the box for Sterling to head in from close range.

That’s his second of the tournament and as it stands, England will win Group D.

10 mins: Stones rises to meet a Shaw free-kick into the box but heads well over the bar.

A minute later, a loose ball drops to Kane but he swipes a shot high into the stands. The England captain is still seeking his first shot on target of the Euros.

8 mins: “It’s coming home!” sing the England fans. The Three Lions were booed off against Scotland last time out – but those inside the national stadium are well behind the team now.

England seeing most of the ball so far but the Czechs look well set up and the hosts will need to play it around quicker to open up the spaces.

2 mins: OFF THE POST! What a chance for England. Shaw picks out Sterling with a delightful curled pass that sets the Man City winger clear through on goal.

Sterling lifts the ball over Vaclik but his shot comes back off the far post. So close to an early opener.

KICK-OFF – we’re underway at Wembley!

7.58pm: Good noise as the England and Czech Republic players emerge to The White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army at Wembley. The fans and players then join in for a loud chorus of God Save The Queen.

England kneel against racial discrimination pre-match but with music playing loudly over the PA system, it’s hard to tell whether there were any boos from the home fans.

A reminder, England need to win if they want to play their last 16 match at Wembley against the runner-up of Germany, France and Portugal’s group.

7.50pm: It’s all about Aston Villa captain Grealish leading up to kick off. Keane says: “He’s got an opportunity. He’s got to take it. He’s got courage, he wants the ball in tight areas.

“Every time I watch Jack, he affects games. There’s not many players like Jack around. They’re the guys that make the difference but he’s got to prove it. He has to take it tonight.”

Neville adds: “He has the country in his hands tonight and I really hope he delivers. He could really bring this tournament alive for England.”

All eyes are on Grealish – he has to deliver if he wants more starts this tournament.

7.45pm: Some more from Southgate earlier, this time on Harry Maguire, who returns to the team at centre-back tonight.

“I think he has been the outstanding English defender in the league this season,” the England boss said.

“He has been such a bedrock for us. It was a difficult call because Tyrone [Mings] has been a colossus for us but it is a good opportunity for Harry to get 90 minutes.”

That first line a bit harsh on Manchester City’s Stones alongside him, no? It was him over Maguire in the PFA Team of the Year, as voted for by the players, after all.

7.35pm: Those in the comments don’t seem overly confident about tonight’s match against the Group D leaders…

GeoffDavies says: “Got thru by luck because of other teams result. Next stage first out as usual no surprise.”

NeilM1965 writes: “Gareth Southgates naturally defensive – 10-0 formation. Big time Charlie’s in qualifying and always bottlers in tournaments.”

Bigzap posts: “If they play like they did against Scotland, then they have no chance of winning…”

7.30pm: Ian Wright chimes in on the same debate, calling it “baffling” that Scotland have no players isolating given they shared a dressing room with Covid absentee Gilmour.

He says: “To be able to take the hit of Mason Mount and Chilwell to not be able to play for baffling reasons, this squad can take that hit.

“We don’t want to, but we’re going to have to take that hit. Who’s coming in, in this game in particular, I think it’ okay. They’ll cope.

“It is baffling, but it is something that’s happened. I don’t want to wish anything on the Scotland players, don’t get me wrong, but the fact is it is absolutely crazy, I’d love to see the reasoning behind it.”

7.20pm: Classic hard-nosed Roy Keane on ITV’s coverage, discussing the absences of Mount and Chilwell. While many sympathise with the duo, Keane is very much pointing the finger at the Chelsea pair for chatting with Scotland’s Gilmour.

The Manchester United legend says: “I think the only thing I’d be critical of is why would you want to speak to an opposition player, I don’t care if he’s your team-mate or not, for over 20 minutes.

“I very rarely speak to anybody for over five minutes. At the game, when you’ve been at war with somebody, why would you want to speak to anybody for that long? They could have used more common sense.”

He won’t be happy if Rice, Soucek and Coufal catch up at full-time then…

7.10pm: Southgate speaks. He says to ITV…

On Mount and Chilwell: “They’re hugely disappointed to miss the games. We’ve just had to get on with it. It’s a bizarre situation really. They’ve spent 120 seconds too long in a fairly open space. It’s full of contradictions for me.

“Frankly I don’t understand it at all. There are teams travelling round by plane, by bus, by coach for hours. I really don’t get it. I said yesterday I’ve no issue for Scotland, I don’t want them to have more than we’ve had, but it seems a bizarre situation.”

On leaving out Foden: “Because he’s on a yellow card. We look like we’ll miss two for the next game. I don’t want to take a risk on a third. It’s a shame for Phil but I think it’s a sensible decision.”

Southgate also appears to rule out Chilwell and Mount from England’s last 16 match, insisting it will be very difficult for them to play due to the team’s training schedule.

7.05pm: So why is Borussia Dortmund winger and Manchester United transfer target Sancho still not starting? The former England international Andros Townsend, in his Euro 2020 column for the Daily Mirror, thinks he knows why.

Reading between the lines I don’t think Jadon Sancho has impressed Gareth Southgate in training,” Townsend said in his latest piece.

“Gareth has had the privilege of watching each player train over the past three weeks going back to the beginning of June. He is in a far better position than you or me to judge who deserves to be in the team, who should be on the bench and who should be in the stands.

“It tells me either Jadon hasn’t been training well or the other wingers have been training slightly better. A manager won’t want to throw his player under the bus so he will be discreet about the reasons why. But Gareth will want Jadon to show him more if he is to make an appearance at these Euros.”

Should the wide-man get some minutes off the bench tonight?

7pm: So then, Czech Republic are unchanged. The West Ham duo of Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal both start at midfield and at right-back respectively.

Joint tournament top goalscorer Patrik Schick, who is tied with Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku and Gini Wijnaldum on three goals, leads the line.

6.55pm: And the Czech Republic starting eleven…

              Czech Republic XI: Vaclik, Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril, Holes, Soucek, Masopust, Darida, Jankto, Schick

              Czech Republic bench: Koubek, Mandous, Kaderabek, Brabec, Barak, Krmencik, Sevcik, Hlozek, Vydra, Kral, Mateju, Pekhart

6.50pm: The big talking point from that is that Sancho again remains on the bench, and that Foden is not in the squad whatsoever.

We’ll hear more about whether the Manchester City man has picked up an injury when Southgate speaks to the broadcasters pre-match.

6.30pm: And the England team is officially in…

             England XI: Pickford; Walker, Maguire, Stones, Shaw; Phillips, Rice, Grealish; Saka, Kane, Sterling

             England bench: Johnstone, Ramsdale, Mings, White, Coady, James, Trippier, Bellingham, Henderson, Sancho, Rashford, Calvert-Lewin

That means it’s actually four changes from the Scotland draw, with Mings, James, Mount and Foden dropping out for Maguire, Walker, Grealish and Saka.

Arsenal’s versatile attacker Saka starts out wide and will hope to inject some more energy and dynamism than was on show from his team-mates last Friday night.

With Mount and Chilwell unavailable, the only player to miss out on the 23 from the 26-man squad is Foden, who is presumably just being rested.

6.20pm: Earlier ‘leaked’ team news suggested that England boss Gareth Southgate will stick with Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling either side of goalless frontman Harry Kane.

But it’s thought Jack Grealish is also primed to start while Harry Maguire could displace Tyrone Mings at centre-back.

Jadon Sancho will start on the substitutes’ bench having yet to play a single minute of the tournament until now.

Chilwell has yet to feature at the Euros and Southgate has Luke Shaw, Kieran Trippier and even Bukayo Saka as options in that position.

The full confirmed line-ups are expected shortly – and we’ll see how many changes Southgate makes from the Scotland draw.

6.10pm: England will be without Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell this evening with the Chelsea pair in isolation.

The duo were in close contact with Scotland’s Billy Gilmour after Friday night’s game with the midfielder since testing positive for coronavirus.

They will isolate for 10 days, meaning they might also be unavailable for next week’s last 16 tie.

The FA confirmed on Tuesday morning: “Chilwell and Mount will isolate and train individually in private areas at England’s training base St George’s Park, with the rest of the squad returning there after tonight’s fixture against Czech Republic at Wembley.

“We will continue to follow all Covid-19 protocols and the UEFA testing regime, while remaining in close contact with PHE.

“The entire England squad and staff had lateral flow tests on Monday and all were again negative, as was the case with Sunday’s UEFA pre-match PCR tests. Further tests will be carried out as and when appropriate.”

6pm: Good evening and welcome to Express Sport’s live coverage of England’s final Euro 2020 Group D match against Czech Republic at Wembley.

Having beaten Croatia but drawn with Scotland, Gareth Southgate’s side are already into the knockout stages of the Euros.

The four best third-placed teams from the six groups make it through to the last 16 and Ukraine and Finland finished third in their groups on Monday night on three points apiece.

That means even if England finish third tonight, which they will if they lose and Scotland win, they will still progress.

Tonight’s opponents Czech Republic beat Scotland and drew with Croatia but are above England thanks to their superior goal difference.
