“Could Hear a Pin Drop” – Scotland Fans Aren’t Happy With Hampden Atmosphere vs Denmark

“Could Hear a Pin Drop” – Scotland Fans Aren’t Happy With Hampden Atmosphere vs Denmark

Scotland are often credited with having some of the most passionate fans in international football… but that doesn’t seem to be the case in tonight’s friendly with Denmark at Hampden Park.

And the fans really aren’t happy about it… not one bit.

Gordon Strachan has picked an experimental side for the match, with Celtic duo Kieran Tierney and Leigh Griffiths both getting the nod.

Hibernian midfielder John McGinn has also started alongside Scott Brown in midfield.

But despite the changes and the amount of young talent on show, fans have taken to Twitter to slaughter the atmosphere at the national stadium.

Some stuck the boot in for state of the pitch, despite it having been relaid just last month for the League Cup final between Hibs and Ross County.

Other supporters were unhappy that the SFA chose Hampden as tonight’s venue instead of Pittodrie, Tynecastle or Easter Road:

Thankfully it’s not all doom and gloom in Glasgow this evening, as Denmark defender Daniel Agger gift-wrapped Scotland the opener after just eight minutes.

The ex-Liverpool defender’s calamitous defending allowed Matt Ritchie to pounce and give the home side the advantage.

The score is currently 1-0 at half-time.
