It is nice to see opponents can settle any minor disputes in a mature, adult manner ...

Will England's Jack Wilshere now prepare his conkers for tonight's Switzerland encounter? Probably not.

Pride and optimism seems to be the prevailing mood in Scotland's sporting press this morning following last night's narrow 2-1 defeat to Germany in Dortmund. Under the headline 'World Knows Us Now,' the Scottish Sun focuses on goalscorer lkechi Anya who says the whole world will have taken notice of the way Scotland played against the world champions.

"When we scored the equaliser, we had Germany rattled," the Watford FC winger tells the tabloid. "We came here with a mentality that we've got no fear. We know how good we are. Now the world and the other teams in the group will be wary of us."

Anya also features on the back page of the Daily Record under the headline 'Broken Herr-ted,' while broadsheets The Scotsman and The Herald focus on the positives manager Gordon Strachan can take from the performance for the rest of their UEFA EURO 2016 campaign under the respective headlines of 'Strachan so proud of his team after German fight' and 'Upbeat Strachan: "We were close to defeating the world champions."'
