Scotland managed through the play-offs as one of four nations to qualify for the European Championship finals. The opponent in the final was Serbia. Scots won on penalties. It was still 1:1 after 120 minutes.
The Scots have two home games in Glasgow in the summer. The Czech Republic and Croatia are expected to arrive there. It is only the third participation in the European Championship for Scotland – and the first in 25 years. There has never been more than a preliminary round for a team from the north of the United Kingdom so far. In 1998, at the World Cup in France, Scots took part in a major tournament for the last time.
Coach Steve Clarke, who worked as an assistant at Chelsea FC under starting coach Jose Mourinho, says: “It is a privilege to be the head coach of a national team that participates in a major tournament.” His most famous actor is captain Andrew Robertson (27) from Liverpool FC. There are also newcomers such as David Turnbull (21, Celtic Glasgow) and Nathan Patterson (19, Glasgow Rangers). What are the Scots planning to do in EM? Robertson: “We are there to make it harder for the other teams.” He wants to join the last 16 teams with his boys – that is, in the knockout stage. And when it comes to penalty shootouts, Scotland’s long party prospects look good.
