Scotland Now Know What it Will Take to Make Euro 2020

Scotland Now Know What it Will Take to Make Euro 2020

Scotland now know what stands between them and a place at Euro 2020.

The Tartan Army watched on impatiently this morning as UEFA made the draw for the play-offs in March.

Scotland booked their place there after winning their Nations League group a year ago.

And now it’s the only way they make the tournament after a dismal showing in proper qualification.

Now Steve Clarke and his men know that they will face Israel, who they beat in that Nations League group, at Hampden in March for the play-off semi-final.

That’s good news considering the last time the sides met Scotland emerged 3-2 victors at Hampden.

The bad news is who waits for Scotland in the final – and where that game is being played.

It will be the winners of Serbia v Norway, who both failed to make it out of their qualification groups for Euro 2020.

UEFA then made the draw for the host venue for the final and unfortunately it was that semi-final winner who came out first.

So, it’s clear for Scotland – beat Israel at Hampden then it’s either Serbia away or Norway away to clinch a spot at Euro 2020.

That’s a big ask!
