It goes without saying that the relationship between Scotland and England is not at all pleasant. In some ways, they never were. In this sense history speaks for itself. And it is precisely starting with history that the National, a pro-independence newspaper based in Glasgow, pulled the front page of today’s edition. Dedicated, needless to say, to the Euro 2020 final between the hated English cousin and Italy. Suddenly he became the last, possible anchor of salvation. And so, Azuri Roberto Mancini’s coach was portrayed as William Wallace, brought to the big screen by Scottish patriot and national hero Mel Gibson and made history (including in cinema) for the following words: “They could take our lives.” But they will never take away our freedom.” And the Scots, in “Mansio”, are asking exactly this: to save from the English yoke and from the possible victory of the Three Lions. The title also speaks for itself: “Last Hope”. A game to underline the fact that tomorrow a final will be played and Mancini is Scotland’s last hope. And then: «Save us Roberto». Save us Roberto. The least we can say is that tomorrow evening At Wembley, while thousands and thousands of Englishmen will support Southgate’s national team, Italy will be able to count on a special support: that of neighboring Scotland.
