While the Tartan Army suffered a controversial defeat in Spain last week, which briefly denied them qualification for the 2024 European Championship, their ticket to Germany has now been booked.
While their trip to France was always going to be something of a party for fans, now the celebrations can really begin. Steve Clarke’s side are heading towards the finals of the European Championships for the second year in a row.
As expected, the French have also completed their qualification as Didier Deschamps is ready for another tournament cycle.
