Scotland in Euros

With the European Championships around the corner – the first time Scotland have played at a major tournament since 1998 – Bella has teamed up with Philosophy Football to create a special offer for our readers. The shirt design features a unique symbol of the 2021 European Union of 24 football nations [10% off via Nutmeg quote coupon code BellaEuro21 at checkout]

It’s a bit dismal that the Tartan Army won’t be able to pack out Hampden (and Wembley) but here we go. With Andy Robertson, John McGinn, Kiernan Tierney, Ché Adams, Kevin Nisbet and Scott McTominay in the squad and the uncapped young team of Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour, Celtic’s David Turnbull and Ranger’s Nathan Patterson being given a chance – this is the most exciting Scotland squad for a generation.

Injuries to squad regulars Ryan Jack, Kenny McLean and Oli McBurnie have opened the door to new talent, as has UEFA’s decision to allow countries at Euro 2020 to select 26 players given him more room for manoeuvre.

Scotland are in Group D and will face Czech Republic on 14 June, followed by England on 18 June, and Croatia on 22 June. Their first and third games will be played at Hampden in front of 12,000 fans.

    Nope, not the first time that Scotland has played in a major football tournament since 1998, as I somehow keep needing to point out.

    And therefore not the most exciting Scotland squad for a generation either.

    I note that they are off to Spain for their ”training camp” .

    Given that the games are to be played in the UK , they are clearly not going there to acclimatise .
    In the midst of a pandemic , where Spain are in a poorer position than Scotland /UK re. vaccinations / deaths /positives , and in light of the bad experience of Celtic and their Dubai ”training camp” , should the team be leaving the comparative safety of these shores ?

    P.S. Good Luck to the team ( in the games ) !

    Pretty poncy having an EU flag on a t-shirt promoting a fitba compo that features the likes of Russia and Turkey. The organiser is called ‘UEFA’ btw.
