Euro 2020: Scotland Earns First Point After Battling England To Goalless Draw 

Scotland battled England to a 0-0 draw to record their first point at a rain-soaked Wembley in their eagerly anticipated Euro 2020 group game on Friday.

The draw took England to four points while Scotland are now on a point.

The result means England still need at least a point from their last game against the Czech Republic on Tuesday to qualify for the last 16 while Scotland must beat Croatia to stand a chance of advancing.

England came close to broking the deadlock in the 11th minute when John Stones headed the ball against the post.

Scotland’s first big moment of the night came when they nearly scored on the half-hour mark after Kieran Tierney overlapped Andy Robertson and sent in a deep cross.

Stephen O’Donnell caught it on the volley but England keeper Jordan Pickford made a strong save to claw it out.

The teams set off to an intense start of the second half, with Mason Mount getting England’s first on-target shot, hitting the ball towards the near post but Scotland’s goalkeeper David Marshall managed to keep it out.

Stephen O’Donnell curled a delightful cross into the area which nearly reaches Lyndon Dykes but Tyrone Mings leaped to make an important headed clearance.

    THEY’RE EVEN WORSE THAN SCOTLAND.
    That was the chant of English fans in Euro 1996 when England walloped Holland 4-1. Led by Paul Gazza Gascoigne, England ran rings round Holland and defeated them comprehensively, with the fans chanting the above in mockery of the Dutch.
    Fast forward 25 years, and here we are. In the light of yesterday’s game, it begs the question – Are England themselves better than Scotland?
    If the 3 Lions want to do well in this competition, the onus is on them to produce the requisite performances. As it stands, if England are checkmated by the Czechs and lose their last group game, they will be eliminated if Croatia beat or lose to the Scots by 2 goals or more. And if the Scots end up being the victors, it would be Scotland that progresses to the next round, while the English go back home for generous helpings of kidney pie.
