 We're all going to Euro 2020!

Possibly..

Despite my daft title to the thread I'd be surprised if this happens.

Still might have more chance than qualifying through the playoffs :-)

Nothing will come of this.

Let’s focus on the play-offs. Incidentally, is there anywhere on TV where you can watch the draw?

UEFA aren't going to throw out a major TV market, a host nation and somewhere that had a major UEFA Sponsor (Gazprom) sadly.

I think we've got a good chance against Israel but Norway and Serbia are both tricky opponents. Norway in particular looked decent in the qualifiers. In a group that had Spain Sweden and Romania in it they only lost one game.

Probably a good move actually. I dont want to sound too cocky but I'm pretty confident we'll beat Israel.

Worst case scenario you've got the choice of a holiday to Norway or Serbia.

Glad we don’t have to leave Europe to play this game 😏. Anyway, Israel aren’t bad and we aren’t good. Can’t see us qualifying.

Norway also drew with Spain did they not? Seem like a team that can either be brilliant or total guff depending on the day. Neither them or Serbia will be an easy game but need to beat Israel first and we all know how difficult we like to make things for ourselves

For me I just look at Israel-will be a good result if we beat them, we just squeezed past them last time.

We live in hope though.

We'll beat Israel and Hampden will be full to see it.

I'd say we're 25% shots to win the away game.

Let's put McGinn in bubble wrap till March.

They're either very good or decent but never guff. If you look at their last 20 internationals they've only lost two. One was away in Spain which they lost 2 1 and the other was away in Bulgaria that they lost 1 0 in a game they had more chances and more possesion but went down to a narrow defeat.

They've had 12 wins and 6 draws. The draws were: two with Sweden, two with Romania , 1 away at Slovenia and 1 home to Spain. That's pretty solid form for a non Elite nation.

@ Sliema the win in Malta was still a win in a meaningless game in which Norway made 4 changes to their starting line compared to their previous game's starting line up.

These are all reasonable sides. Whoever wins will deserve their place in the finals.
I'm glad we have Robertson and McGinn. It would be nice if we could have a couple more at that level.

Can anyone explain how we are already in England's group when/if we qualify?

The groups are spread round Europe but each group will have 2 host cities in 2 different countries. Group D is behind hosted by Wembley and Hampden so England are in that group already and Acotland will be if we qualify. This is to ensure some "home" crowds. The Netherlands will definitely be in the Amsterdam/Dublin group and Eire will be too if they qualify via the play offs.

We should be able to get past Israel. Would prefer Norway to Serbia, having seen them both play Romania recently. Norway are organised and pretty solid but don't have much imagination or creativity. Serbia are a bit more hot and cold but I think they have more quality and an away game there would be a lot more hostile.

The final should we get there will be really tough, we could have been doing with that being at home. Still reasons to be confident with the last 3 games ableit against limited opposition.
Hopefully the players grasp the chance they have been given to end this 22 year wait. Best chance we have had since that Italy game in 2007 and i'd say this is a better chance than back then.

Awight Pat!

I would take getting slapped silly over the 3 games just to be there. I was in 1st year at High School during France 98 and I'm now in my mid 30s but I do remember the buzz about the country was unreal then especially for the Brazil game.There is a whole generation of fans that haven't seen Scotland at a major finals and that's really sad especially when you consider some of the other nations that have managed it over the last few years.

Awight Pat!

Apparently the Euros are not considered a major sporting event by the anti-doping body who made this decision

Braw, so if England win it, we can wind them up telling them they have won the international equivalent of the Scottish Challenge Wafer-Bru Cup.

NAtions league (which is the equivalent of the caramel wafer trophy) which is played Sept/OCt/Nov and is a prequalifying to the WC may impact scotland as Russia are one of the Pot 1 options we could face (along with Wales/Czechs, Austria)
