Scotland have won a qualification for their first major tournament since 1998. In the same Euro 2020 group as their neighbors, England, they overjoyed over this achievement of a big return. So, without further ado, here is the Euro 2020 Group D team preview – Scotland.
One of the football updates around Scotland’s Euros campaign is that they only recently tied 2-2 with the Netherlands.
Regardless, when we look at Scotland’s national squad, we don’t believe there is a lot of pressure on them.
On the other hand, England and Croatia will be under a lot of strain, which could work in their favor.
Euro 2020 Group D Team Preview – Scotland
Scotland’s first game against the Czech Republic is crucial. They must win that game if they are to have any chance of qualifying from the group. We, here at Football Chase, believe they can.
In this case, they may place third and still qualify, so there is great potential for Scotland. Further, winning any of the other two games would be a huge plus.
They believe they will be able to qualify from the group because it’s obviously a lot easier now. After all, even third-place finishes can suffice to qualify for the knockout stages.
So, for Scotland, any wins beyond that would be a great plus. Still, fans should prepare for any and all surprise results because a lot depends on how the draw goes.
It would be fantastic if Scotland could make the last 16, and no Scot would complain about not going further.
For instance, to see how much players working together can accomplish, we can always look at Wales’ Euro 2016 journey.
It’s been a long time since Scotland has competed in a big event, so it’s wonderful to see them back. Beyond this ecstasy, we’ll be glad to see them advance as much as they can.
