Scotland have qualified for their second straight European Championships and, inbetween that, narrowly missed out on a place at the 2022 World Cup.

Led by Steve Clarke and captained by Andy Robertson, the Scots go into this tournament hopeful of a history-making shock against the host nation. However, the priority has to be securing progress from a group that also includes Hungary and Switzerland.

Robertson will lead his countrymen into battle on Friday night accompanied by fellow Premier League stars Scot McTominay and John McGinn.

The Germans are among the favourites for the tournament, as usual, but boss Julian Nagelsmann is wary of the threat posed by the Tartan Army.

He said: “It’s an incredible development. It’s not kick and rush. They can do that, but they can play football. They lost 4-0 to Holland, but they were better than the Dutch. We have more pressure than Scotland, so I’m sure they want to capitalise on that.”

Here’s how to watch Germany vs Scotland for free on the best TV you have in the house.
