Scotland join England in taking the knee for their Euro 2020 match

Scotland will take the knee against England next Friday

The Tartan Army will stand in solidarity with the Three Lions and take the knee before their meeting next Friday

Scotland have so far been “taking a stand” against racism throughout the build-up to Euro 2020 but it has now been announced by Scotland and their captain, Andy Robertson, that Steve Clarke and his men will be kneeling alongside England when the two sides meet on Friday, June 18th.

This comes as fans continue to boo the statement against racism, questioning the weight of the gesture and suggesting it has political affiliations as opposed to being simply an anti-racist declaration.

The Scotland squad switched to standing for the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign back in March after Clarke himself had suggested that gesture had become “maybe a little bit diluted”.
