fair play to England…they worked hard…defended deep and deserved to hang onto the draw in the end

Scotland had the best chances, England were poor last night. Same old story, hopefully we get better.

I'm sure England will play out a draw with Czech on Tuesday.

Southgate instinctively doesn't take risks with his job, I find it hard to believe given he has some level of control over England's destiny, that he would choose a route of France, Portugal Germany etc over Sweden (sorry Swede) to get to the final…

Yup. He used '96 Uri Geller mind trick tactics to move Stone's header onto the post and have England see out the draw.

Scotland played a great match all things considered, draw is well deserved.

As for many other teams, big and small, what I see lacking terribly in this Euro Cup is strikers and offensive potential. Most teams defend well, but that's all they can do, and this results in very boring and slow games.

Hopefully today's games will be a bit livelier

Scotland played well. Good to see the silly mistakes from their first game weren't repeated. England were very nervy from the off and not really threatening, look weak compared to other 'top' teams.

How can England play Sweden? I thought they defo played either Germany, France or Portugal?

That Isak for Sweden is amazing, I saw him play for AIK a few years ago but didn’t realise he’d actually got good. Talk of him coming to Liverpool.

Scotland definitely played well and England quite poor but let’s be honest - both teams were pretty shit? Not like Scotland were THAT good. Was a boring game

If England win Group D…

Tuesday, June 29 - vs Group F runners-up (Portugal, France, Germany, Hungary); kick-off 5pm (London)

If England finish second in Group D…

Monday, June 28 - vs Group E runners-up (Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia); kick-off 5pm (Copenhagen)

If England finish as one of four best third-place teams…

One of:

Sunday, June 27 - vs Group C winners (Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia); kick-off 5pm (Budapest)

Sunday, June 27 - vs Group B winners (Denmark, Finland, Belgium and Russia); kick-off 8pm (Seville)

Tuesday, June 29: vs Group E winners (Spain, Sweden, Poland, Slovakia); kick-off 8pm (Glasgow)

Got my ticket for Scotland v Croatia today - €185 Eek Total ripoff but I'm unlikely to see Scotland playing at Hampden in a major championship again. We also have a chance of qualification.

I had the €50 tickets won in the original ballet but lost those when the crowd was slashed.

The prices are mad, just pure greed from UEFA.

I went to the game last night, we had category 1 tickets which I think are the same price as yours. You could just sit wherever you wanted as the stewards couldn’t have cared less. I had a mate who paid €50 walk over and stand with us. There was also quite a bit of trouble as the crowd was mixed.

I love/hate the Germans. Wanted them to win today because they’ll make it more entertaining in the knockout stages.

If you see your team batter another team or a worldie scored like Joe Cole v Sweden or Gazza v scots and they go on to have a good tournament €185 is totally worth it IMO.

But it's very much like buying a lottery ticket.

Enjoy Doogan. Might be worth every penny Cool
