The latest chapter in the oldest rivalry in international football will unfold at Euro 2020 on Friday evening when England meet Scotland at Wembley.

Victory would see Gareth Southgate’s men progress to the last 16, while the Scots are desperate to open their Group D account after Monday’s 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic.

The much-anticipated match is the first time the two sides have met in a major tournament since Euro 96, when Paul Gascoigne’s famous goal sealed a 2-0 win.
