Teams: Scotland & Chelsea
Position: Defensive midfielder
Who is Scotland’s Billy Gilmour?
Despite the fact heâs played very little senior football, there is serious excitement about this talented young Scott.
In Chelseaâs last two fixtures before the Covid-19 shutdown, Billy Gilmour won man of the match on both occasions in an FA Cup victory over Liverpool and then a 4-0 win over Everton on his full-Premier League debut.
Overall, heâs played just 22 times for Chelseaâs first team, missing a large chunk of this season with a knee injury.
Nevertheless, his talents have been on show for all to see, particularly in the Bluesâ come from behind 2-1 victory at Manchester City in April where Gilmour played 90 minutes.
This helped him earn a place in Stevie Clarkeâs Euro 2020 squad as one of three uncapped players.
Central midfield, alongside left-back, is the most competitive area of Scotlandâs squad but Gilmour could become an international stalwart for the next decade and beyond.
