Antagonism and conflict fuel England's rivalry with Scotland
When England face Scotland in Friday's Euro 2020 clash at Wembley, the first meeting between the rivals in four years will renew a bitter feud stoked by centuries of antagonism and conflict. They didn't play again for seven years until England won 2-0 in a Euro 96 group game at Wembley. Gascoigne's sublime goal and 'Dentist's Chair' celebration remains one of England's iconic moments, while Scots still rue David Seaman's save from Gary McAllister's penalty moments earlier."I've never felt a buzz like it because it's England-Scotland. What I'll always remember is the atmosphere," said Jamie Redknapp, who came on for England at half-time.
Yet Lorraine insisted to MailOnline that any rivalry will be sports-womanly and cordial - and that she was one of the first to chat to Mel and her fellow Spice Girls when they were catapulted to stardom in 1996 with their debut single Wannabe.
Earlier this week, it was claimed that Mark is reportedly earning £2,500 per show covering the Euros 2020 in weekday episodes on Sky Sports.
The formerstar is hosting the daily 7am to 10am show with Bela Shah, and is said to be taking home £12,500 a week which equates to over £50,000 by the end of the championship.
An insider told: 'Mark is a popular face on telly so managed to negotiate an amazing deal. It is great money to talk about football, which he loves doing anyway. It’s a win-win.
'The first show last Friday got double the normal viewers for the slot, so Sky Sports feels like it’s money well spent.'
