Scotland have this evening found out who they will face in the Euros this summer at Euro 2024. The Scots have been drawn with the host nation, Germany, Hungary and Switzerland, with Steve Clarke and his men kicking off the tournament on the opening night against Julian Nagelsmann’s side in what promises to be another special occasion.
Scotland had a tremendous qualifiying campaign to get to Germany, being one of the first countries to reach the finals following a string of wonderful performances which sealed their place. Steve Clarke has been steadily banishing years and years of agonising experiences for the Tartan Army and the nation as a whole. After winning a Play-off match against Serbia to get to Euro 2020, it was the first time since France ’98 that the country had cause to celebrate.
For years we struggled badly to beat weaker nations in qualifiying and the list of failures was endless. Berti Vogts, Walter Smith, Alex McLeish, George Burley, Craig Levein, and Gordon Strachan came and went to no avail. Although some came close and fought manfully in different World Cup and Euros qualification group, none could break the curse.
That’s Scotland now qualified for back-to-back tournaments and given the nation hopes of a brighter future in regard the national team set-up. Clarke has instilled a club feel to the national team and every player fights for one another. With a plethora of Premier League stars and high-profile players from various other quarters, we really have a chance to do well at this one, despite it being a strong group.
Without any further ado..
Here’s how Group A looks:
