With pride of the derby at stake, England will renew hostilities against Scotland in the second round of Euro 2020 Group D games at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday. The mouth-watering clash is scheduled to start at 12:30 AM (IST).
The Three Lions will be looking to make it two wins in this European Championship after they opened their campaign with a 1-0 win over 2018 World Cup nemesis Croatia last weekend. Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the contest against Croatia on Sunday, as Gareth Southgate’s men started their Group D challenge with an important victory in London.
On the contrary, neighbours Scotland suffered a disappointing two-goal defeat against the Czech Republic at Hampden Park on Monday. Despite best efforts from skipper Andrew Robertson, Steve Clarke’s side couldn’t match the brilliance of Bayer Leverkusen attacker Peter Schick, who scored twice in the game.
Both sides have the oldest rivalry in football history, dating back to 1872. But this Euro 2020 league match will be bigger than most as it will be the first encounter between the neighbours in a major tournament since 1996. Due to their 150-year rivalry, both sides have faced each other on 114 occasions, earning them the most played international moniker. However, the Three Lions have the upper hand with 48 wins and their Scottish counterparts are close enough with 41 wins, while 25 ended in draws.
