Yeah it's been a bit of a weird one, it's felt a bit abstract, but the excitement's certainly rising now, I cannot wait! Talking to a bunch of english guys this morning, they don't fancy our game at all, one of them said they're playing 11 right backs these days and they know we're going to go for their throats.

A bit pessimistic of them, we have an outside chance, nothing more, but that'll do!

COME ON SCOTLAND!!!!

Anything can happen in one game. Just a pity it's not a penalty shootout v England as we are awsome and they are p1sh 😁

The full draw is here

 

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Euro_2020

 

If we make predictions of course its nearly impossible. At the moment I'm mainly encouraged that England could play Portugal, France or Germany in the next round. 

 

But why not. Reserve the right to change this tomorrow. 

 

Qualifiers

 

Group A

1. Italy 

2. Turkey

 

Group B

1. Denmark 

2. Belgium 

3. Russia 

 

Group C

Group D

1. Croatia

2. England 

3. Scotland 

 

Group E 

1. Spain

2. Poland 

3. Sweden

 

Group F

1. Portugal 

2. France 

3. Germany 

 

Saying who plays who also seems to involve  ranking of 3rd place teams. 

 

Last 16

Denmark v Germany 

Italy v Ukraine

Portugal v Russia 

England v Poland 

Spain v Scotland 

Croatia v France 

Netherlands v Sweden 

Italy v Belgium

Phil Foden's "Gazza" hairdo, being lapped up.

 

Inspiring, apparently. 🙄

 

Just have to shatter his dreams then, I suppose. Or a tibia.

Iceland looking honking against Poland so far can we swap England out for them?

 

Rough start for Poland 🤣.    Great history beating Iceland, then, not so much.   I'm not watching the game.   Just the score.    Poland must be bad if Iceland are honking.

Poland were as poor finishing as Scotland v Luxembourg. Iceland just defended and did little else

The Spain situation means Busquets is in isolation and their friendly tonight is being played by the U21s.

They are then going to call up a parallel squad from the U21s and others and they will be in a separate bubble from the other squad. If the main squad has more hits, they’ll draw from a parallel squad.

All tests have been negative so far for the rest of the squad.

Busquets, himself, will miss the first game but will be eligible if his test comes back negative next week.

Hope there is no more of it. Could be a nightmare if a player tests positive during the tourney.

Fingers crossed !

Not sure if there is anything.

 

Teams have I think till 11 June to make any changes to squad. 

 

Also Spain have called up more players to be ready to join meantime.

England if they win Group will get momentum from winning that game.

 

They won't be favourites though even with the game being at Wembley. 

 

Of course maybe England will actively avoid winning group. 

If we qualify in 3rd place we play at hampden. Runner-up, we have to go to Russia. Feck that.

Anyone going to the fanzone? I've got tickets for the England game but I'm trying to decide if it's worth going through. Can't work out what the layouts going to be and whether I'll be able to have a drink whilst watching it. Seems to be a food and beverage area but I'm not sure if that's separate from the usual tables. No spirits on matchdays already as well so wouldn't surprise me if alcohol was banned if it goes a bit wild this weekend 🤷‍♂️

Just saw a bit of chat about the problems Spain are having and whether the players should be vaccinated. Any idea if Scotland have been and whether other teams should be or have done already? Surely would’ve been an idea to do so?

Leitch said the other day it’s a small fraction of the actual attendance of the venue, there will be a bar but as you say what happens before then might change it. He said it’s a fluid situation so might change as time goes on. Most pubs will be booked solid by now also.

So no proof of vaccination or negative tests result needed for hampden or fanzone.

 

We'll see that change come the start of the season!!!

Anybody got a ticket for any of the games and what is the Scotland allocation for each of them.

Any info would be much appreciated👍

 

 

I believe 12k total fans at hampden, but only 2k went to Scotland supporters clubs. And for wembley, we got 2600 of a capacity 25k crowd

I got a ticket for the Croatia game but bought it back in 2019 from the official UEFA website. They actually refunded me the ticket initially as they were taking the ticket off me and then they gave it back to me (at the same price). Fans are entering the stadium at specific time slots. I've to head in between 6.30-7pm for an 8pm ko. Some folk are having to head in 2.5-3hrs before a game.

Hernandez at centre back maybe... he's a better left back then Mendy as well

 

Also it won't be quite as easy as the wins for Xavi and Iniesta's Spain :D

So who would get the rest of the tickets as I can't see many from other countries coming over.

Surely the rest can't be hospitality etc.

Nightmare having to wait  so long before kick off especially with nothing being open.

I am normally a 10 to 3 man at the earliest.🙂

Same, l will be like a lost wee boy for an hour before ko! Can't remember the last time l would be at a game that early. 

 

EDIT: there are no food kiosks open either apparently.

Don't get me wrong l am extremely lucky to be going to the game and am very appreciative.

The fanzone looks like this, & it’s £6.50 a pint (allegedly). 😱

There's good TV coverage over here but the 1st Scotland game kicks off at 1am.  I'll have to settle for the highlights.  I will however watch our game v England live whatever time it starts.

 

I'll happily settle for Scotland looking as if they want to be there and competing well.  And our Craig being selected of course.

No idea about Hampden, but some Wembley tickets were for key workers (mainly NHS) and local residents. Of course there will be hospitality and the majority are official travel club members. Unfortunately the corrupt UEFA suits will have a big slice, Giving tickets to key workers and local residents was the right thing to do and it really ****s me off that people are moaning about it. They should have been the majority in my opinion and nothing for UEFA. Trafalgar Square is for key workers too.

Think they'll sell the picnic benches after?

 

Looking for one for my back garden and browsing the other day I was stunned at how expensive they are. 

 

Happy to paint over weegie graffiti that it will inevitably be covered in.

Proper excited for this. Never thought I would be. 

 

Was only in my mid teens during France 98! Football was great then, we had just won't the Scottish Cup and the next match was Scotland v Brazil!

 

Edit - I wasn't even a teenager :lol:

No idea what they’ll do with them after tbh, there’s loads of them though. Maybe get in touch with the fanzone people directly at Glasgow Green?.

I still just can't quite believe that Scotland have actually qualified again, delighted to just have someone to support rather than ABE, it's practically a free hit for us to be honest, If we get a win against the czechs i would be more than happy, however the closer the england game gets, the more excited i get about us causing an upset against THEM! at least we are taking part though, good times.

Last time Scotland appeared at an International Football Finals, certain bars were offering 6 bottles of budweiser in a wee ice bucket for a fiver.

When Hibs won the Scottish Cup the time before last, you could have bought their brewery for a fiver.

What to do with all that wood when they’re clearing up on the 12th of July !

Hmm…one to ponder !

I think the Scotland team have made a big mistake in not taking a knee at the Euros, especially against England where it might inspire their black players.

We got tickets for Scotland Vs Czechs through UEFA bought long before qualification had finished

 

Kick off 2.00pm entrance slot 1100-1130. Might take a book!
