Scottish Secretary cheers on Scotland as EURO 2020 kicks off

The football tournament will see Scotland, England and Wales playing against Europe's best national teams at stadiums including Hampden Park and Wembley.

Ahead of EURO 2020 getting underway tonight [Friday 11 June 2021], Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said:

We are all looking forward to the EURO 2020 festival of football kicking off tonight. After a difficult few months it is a very welcome lift to the country’s spirits.

With Scotland, England and Wales all competing, and key matches at Hampden Park and Wembley, the contest will be an unforgettable one for supporters right across Britain.

Scotland’s game against England will be the highlight for many, as we see football’s oldest rivalry re-ignited. With two strong teams, it’s sure to be a great match.

I’ll be cheering on Scotland in all of their games, and I wish Steve Clarke and his squad the very best for the tournament.
