    Is it that long since Scotland embarrassed themselves in a tournament? They're in the same group as England, I see. Oh goody...

    Congratulations to Scotland but let's hope they don't get too carried away like before. Who remembers this famous Scotland 1978 World Cup song and the immortal lines:

    We're on the march with Ally's Army
    We're going to the Argentine
    And we'll really shake them up
    When we win the World Cup
    'Cause Scotland are the greatest football team

    How can you shake someone up by winning the World Cup if you’re the best team?

    At least they didn't release a 'Football's coming home' song where they have to update the 'xx years of hurt' every tournament after failing to perform again.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Say what you like, it’s realistic and scalable.

    Covid restrictions mean that they'll be skipping the 90 mins and deciding all group games with penalty shoot outs.

    I was watching this game, not bothered who won, but when Serbia scored in 90th minute I though, Christ that is cruel as they'd done well up until then.

    Seems like they are decent at a penalty shootout.

    Fair play to them, 22 years is a long time and my parents used to live in Gourock, I like Glasgee and big fan of the tatty scones. And one fish supper could feed about four people.

    Can't fecking stand bagpipes though.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

    100% success rate in penalty shootouts
