Scotland In Dire Need Of A Goalscorer

Scotland’s win at home against Moldova was their first in five games, taking them up to third in their World Cup qualifying group as rivals for second place Austria lost in Israel.

Sounds like a good night’s work, so why all the pessimism?

Pre-match, Scotland boss Steve Clarke asked for his side to “be on the front foot, be positive and get the goals needed to win”.

The head coach got his wish, but it could have been so much more comfortable for the hosts against the world’s 175th-ranked nation after a flurry of clear-cut chances were squandered.

Euro 2020 Round of 16 Matches Set

Euro 2020 Tickets

The Euro 2020 round of 16 matches are all set and some teams have a much easier path to the final than others.

In one side of the bracket, England will face Germany at Wembley while Wales take on Denmark in Amsterdam. Should England come through their last-16 clash, they would have a quarter-final against either Sweden or Ukraine to look forward to in Rome on Saturday 3 July.

And the Three Lions could potentially meet Wales in the semi-final at Wembley four days later. Standing in Wales’ way, should they progress from the last 16, would be the winners of the Netherlands versus the Czech Republic.

The qualifying draw for Euro 2020 has been made and with any draw, some nations are much happier with their opponents than others.

The likes of Italy and England will be pleased with the draw but and Holland have been left cursing their luck.

Italy

After failing to qualify for World Cup, the Azzurri have been given a real chance of reaching this major tournament with Bosnia the only real threat in their group.

Manager Roberto Mancini was particularly happy to avoid Germany after his side were drawn in Group J, which also holds Finland, Greece, Armenia and Liechtenstein.
