Should England reach the quarter-final stage - which at the moment looks like it could be against reigning champions France - they are due to play the game at 7pm UK time on the same day as the Reading game. This would likely result in a number of fans attending the game not being able to watch the England match live as they will be travelling back from the SCL Stadium. Clubs have been offered the opportunity to switch times by the English Football League (EFL) so the decision whether or not to change the timing of the game rests in Royals' hands.
