National coach Steve Clarke does not see the lack of tournament experience in Scotland's em-comeback after 25 years.
National coach Steve Clarke does not see the lack of tournament experience in Scotland's EM comeback after 25 years. "Great games are for great players, and we believe that we have enough big players who master the situation," said Clarke against the prelude on Monday (15.00 o'clock / magentaTV) against the Czech Republic.
According to Captain Andy Robertson (FC Liverpool) is the team "Relaxed, but ready" for the "difficult task" in the Hampden Park of Glasgow. The meaning of the long-awaited game is all aware: "Many children, teenagers and young people have never seen us at a tournament. I hope we can inspire a nation and make it happy."
EURO 2020: Scotland aims to banish blight of sectarian songs
The most anticipated summer in Scottish soccer in a generation started with a public outbreak of perhaps its deepest-rooted problem. Before Glasgow hosts two national team games at the European Championship, the city witnessed the kind of religious sectarianism that has poisoned relations between fans of Rangers and Celtic for decades. Rangers’ runaway league success under manager Steven Gerrard stopped Celtic from winning its 10th straight title — the holy grail in Scotland — and saw fans march together in big numbers for the first time in the pandemic-hit season.
The home game before 12,000 spectators should also inspire the Bravehearts. "The players are very happy to have fans again, it's long ago that we had spectators in the Hampden Park. That should bring a great atmosphere, and we want to use that for a good result."
For all the anticipation of the first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, only the famous "Tartan Army" should turn on the ranks. "We need to keep emotional control to retrieve our full potential," clarke warned. Scotland's other opponents in Group D are England (Friday) and Vice World Champion Croatia (June 22).
Croatia advances at Euro 2020 with Modrić leading the way .
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Luka Modrić lurked on the edge of the area, waiting for the ball to come to him before perfectly stroking it into the top corner with the outside of his boot. At 35, this may well be the Croatia captain's last European Championship, and he doesn’t want to go home just yet. Modrić's majestic goal in the 62nd minute helped Croatia beat Scotland 3-1 on Tuesday and give the team a spot in the round of 16 at Euro 2020 by finishing second in Group D. Croatia will face the runner-up from Group E on Monday in Copenhagen. “This goal means a lot to me but our play means more, from the beginning until the end," Modrić said.
