Typical British match: heavy rain, high pace, little football. The English team couldn’t stand the Scots, with the two ancient rivals ’national team’s 100th standings in Group D of the European Football Championship in Group D at Wembley in London ending with a goalless draw.
The English were able to look forward to the match against Scotland in a nostalgic atmosphere, as when they were able to host domestic European Championships for the last time, they were also in a group with the ancient rival.

And also for the English against the Czechs, although they are hardly happy about that.
