* FIFA World Cup/FIFA Confederations Cup
Last updated 16/06/2021 23:16CET
The world's oldest international match is revived as England welcome Scotland to Wembley in the second round of Group D games at UEFA EURO 2020.
• There is plenty of history between the old neighbours, not least a famous meeting at Wembley in the group stage of EURO '96 – a match featuring one of the tournament's most famous goals, from England's Paul Gascoigne.
• England come into this match on three points, Raheem Sterling having scored the only goal against Croatia at Wembley on 13 June as England won their opening EURO final tournament game for the first time at the ninth attempt (D5 L3). The following day, Scotland's first game in a major tournament for 23 years ended in a 2-0 defeat by the Czech Republic at Glasgow's Hampden Park.
• The sides last crossed paths in qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, goals from Daniel Sturridge (23), Adam Lallana (50) and Gary Cahill (61) giving Gareth Southgate's side a 3-0 win at Wembley on 11 November 2016.
• England have won 18 of the 32 matches between the sides at Wembley, where Scotland have recorded nine victories against their neighbours. There have been no draws there in the past 15 matches, England winning 11 and Scotland four.
• In the teams' most recent meeting, Harry Kane's goal three minutes into added time rescued a 2-2 draw at Hampden Park on 10 June 2017 after a late Leigh Griffiths free-kick double (87, 90) had overturned Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's 70th-minute opener and seemingly given Gordon Strachan's Scotland victory.
• That draw extended England's unbeaten run against their neighbours to four matches (W3 D1), since a 1-0 defeat by Scotland at Wembley in the second leg of their UEFA EURO 2000 play-off. Don Hutchison's 28th-minute goal gave the visitors their first win at Wembley since 1981, although Paul Scholes' first-half double at Hampden Park ensured England progressed to the finals 2-1 on aggregate.
• The sides' only tournament meeting came at Wembley on Matchday 2 of EURO '96 – Scotland's last EURO appearance before these finals. Second-half goals from Alan Shearer (53) and Gascoigne (79) gave England a 2-0 win, the second goal coming moments after David Seaman had saved a Gary McAllister penalty.
• That was the sides' first EURO fixture since they were paired in qualifying for the 1968 UEFA European Championship. Scotland beat then world champions England 3-2 at Wembley on 15 April 1967, with four of the goals coming in the final 12 minutes; Denis Law's 27th-minute opener was added to in the 78th minute by Bobby Lennox and, though Jack Charlton (84) halved England's deficit, Jim McCalliog got what proved to be Scotland's winner three minutes from time despite Geoff Hurst replying a minute later.
• The reverse fixture at Hampden Park, on 24 February 1968, ended 1-1, a 19th-minute Martin Peters opener cancelled out 20 minutes later by John Hughes, and the point proved enough for England to progress to the quarter-finals.
• England and Scotland met in the first ever official international match, a goalless draw in Glasgow on 30 November 1872.
• The sides have contested 114 previous matches, making it the world's most played international; England have recorded 48 wins to Scotland's 41 with 25 draws. The goal count is 203–174 in England's favour.
EURO facts: England
• This is England's tenth appearance in the UEFA European Championship; they finished third in 1968 and also reached the semi-finals on home soil in 1996.
• A team managed by Roy Hodgson won all ten qualifiers on the way to UEFA EURO 2016, where they finished second behind Wales in their section after taking five points from three matches, only to be shocked by Iceland in the round of 16 (1-2).
• Southgate's side finished top of Group A in UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying, winning seven of their eight matches (L1) to progress six points ahead of the Czech Republic, who are also in Group D at the final tournament. England's sole defeat came away to the Czechs in their fifth fixture (1-2); they had beaten them 5-0 at Wembley in their opening game.
• Kane finished as the overall top scorer in the qualifying group stage with 12 goals, scoring at least once in every game. He also provided five assists.
• Sterling was involved in 15 of England's 37 qualifying goals, scoring eight himself with seven assists.
• The defeat by Iceland in the last 16 at UEFA EURO 2016 is England's only reverse in 12 EURO finals matches (W6 D5), with the quarter-final eliminations on penalties by Italy (2012) and Portugal (2004) counted as draws.
• England's record at Wembley is now W184 D72 L39. They have won ten of their last 11 matches at the stadium, including UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic (5-0), Bulgaria (4-0) and Montenegro (7-0); they have lost only two of their last 23 matches at Wembley (W17 D4), most recently the 1-0 UEFA Nations League defeat by Denmark on 14 October 2020.
• England have never lost in the finals of a major tournament at Wembley (W8 D3), though they were defeated on penalties there by Germany after a 1-1 draw in the semi-final of EURO '96.
EURO facts: Scotland
• Scotland have qualified for two previous EURO final tournaments, in 1992 and 1996. In both they failed to get beyond the group stage, although they won one of their three games in each tournament.
• This is Scotland's first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup in France.
• Scotland have never progressed beyond the first round in either of their EURO appearances or their eight World Cups, although their 1998 World Cup campaign was only the fourth time in those ten tournaments that they failed to win a game.
• The defeat by the Czech Republic on Matchday 1 means Scotland's record in EURO final tournaments is now W2 D1 L4.
• The Scots kicked off their UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying campaign under Alex McLeish, losing 3-0 in Kazakhstan before a 2-0 win away to San Marino. Steve Clarke then succeeded McLeish in May 2019, Scotland ending in third place in Group I behind Belgium and Russia having picked up 15 points from their ten games overall (W5 L5).
• Scotland qualified for the play-offs after finishing top of their 2018/19 UEFA Nations League group, picking up nine points from four matches under McLeish to win their section ahead of Israel and Albania.
• Israel were again the opponents in the UEFA EURO 2020 play-off semi-final, Clarke's side scoring all five of their penalties to win 5-4 after a goalless 120 minutes at Hampden Park.
• Penalties were also needed after Scotland's play-off final away to Serbia had finished 1-1, the home side cancelling out Ryan Christie's opener with a 90th-minute equaliser. Once again Scotland converted all five spot kicks, David Marshall saving Serbia's final penalty from Aleksandar Mitrović to book a finals place.
• The opening loss to the Czechs ended Scotland's five-match unbeaten run in EURO matches (W3 D2); they had lost the previous four.
• Scotland's record in England overall is W20 D13 L29. All but five of those matches have come against England (W18 D11 L28); at EURO '96, aside from their Matchday 2 defeat against the hosts, they drew 0-0 against the Netherlands and beat Switzerland 1-0, both at Villa Park in Birmingham.
• Scotland also defeated Wales 2-0 at Anfield in October 1977 to book their place at the following year's World Cup. More recently, they have played London friendlies against Brazil at the Arsenal Stadium in March 2011 (0-2) and Nigeria at Craven Cottage in May 2014 (2-2).
Links and trivia
• England manager Southgate was in the side that beat Scotland at Wembley at EURO '96.
• Scotland coach Clarke spent the bulk of his playing career in England with Chelsea, making 330 appearances for the London club between 1987 and 1998. He won the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1997/98, the same season the Blues lifted the League Cup, after the previous campaign's FA Cup success.
• Clarke was Chelsea assistant manager between 2004 and 2008 and held similar roles at West Ham (2008–10) and Liverpool (2011/12) before taking charge of West Bromwich Albion in June 2012. He subsequently worked as Reading manager (2014–15) and Aston Villa assistant in 2016 before returning to Scotland to take over at Kilmarnock in October 2017.

• Cooper (Kingston-upon-Hull), McTominay (Lancaster) and Adams (Leicester) were all born in England.
• Raheem Sterling's winner against Croatia was his first tournament goal after drawing blanks in his 14 previous matches. He now has 15 goals in 62 internationals, including 13 in his last 17, and England have won all 11 matches in which he has scored.
• Jude Bellingham's appearance as a substitute against Croatia made him, at the age of 17 years and 349 days, the youngest player ever to appear at a EURO final tournament. The previous record had been set in 2012 by the Netherlands' Jetro Willems (18 years and 71 days).
• The win against Croatia was England's seventh in succession and third in a row by 1-0. They also won both of their UEFA EURO 2020 warm-up fixtures in Middlesbrough by that scoreline, against Austria and Romania. Bukayo Saka notched his maiden international goal to win the first game, and Marcus Rashford scored the penalty that decided the second, in which Jordan Henderson, seeking his first international goal on his 59th appearance, had a second spot kick saved.
• Ben White made his England debut as a substitute against Austria and was subsequently called up to the UEFA EURO 2020 squad to replace Trent Alexander-Arnold, injured late in the same game. Goalkeeper Sam Johnstone kept a clean sheet on his debut against Romania, when White made his first start.
• None of the seven players who featured in the 2021 UEFA Champions League final – Chelsea trio Ben Chilwell, Reece James and Mason Mount and Manchester City quartet Sterling, Phil Foden, John Stones and Kyle Walker – took part in either of the two Middlesbrough friendlies. Mount and the four City players were all in the starting XI against Croatia.
• In addition to those three European champions at Chelsea and four Premier League title winners at Manchester City, the three foreign-based players in Gareth Southgate's squad all picked up winner's medals in 2020/21, Kieran Trippier helping Atlético de Madrid to the Spanish Liga title and Jadon Sancho and Bellingham scooping the German DFB-Pokal with Borussia Dortmund.
• Sterling is the only member of England's UEFA EURO 2020 squad to have scored a goal at the EURO finals. He is among just six of the current squad members who were involved at the 2016 tournament in France, the others being Henderson, Rashford, Stones, Walker and current captain Harry Kane.
• Kane, however, won the Golden Boot at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with six goals, where Stones also scored twice and Trippier once. Other survivors from Southgate's squad in Russia, where England finished fourth, are Henderson, Rashford, Sterling, Walker, Jordan Pickford and Harry Maguire, who also found the net during the tournament. Sterling and Henderson are two of three survivors from the 2014 World Cup, alongside Luke Shaw.
• Although he has yet to score in five games at the EURO finals, Kane's 15 goals in 13 qualifying appearances make him England's all-time second highest scorer in the competition behind Wayne Rooney (20).
• England have brought goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale into the squad to replace Dean Henderson, who had to withdraw with a hip injury.
• Scotland's opening defeat by the Czech Republic was their first in six games (W2 D3) and only their third in the past 17, eight of which were won, plus another two decided in their favour on penalties.
• Steve Clarke's side played two warm-up games in early June, drawing 2-2 with the Netherlands in southern Portugal – a game that featured first international goals for defender Jack Hendry and striker Kevin Nisbet and debuts for David Turnbull and Billy Gilmour – and winning 1-0 away to Luxembourg, in which Ché Adams scored the winner and another first cap was awarded, to Nathan Patterson of Scottish champions Rangers.
• Scotland's squad is the least experienced at UEFA EURO 2020 with just 498 international caps shared between the 26 players and only one of them, 38-year-old goalkeeper Craig Gordon, with over 50 to his name. It is also the squad with the fewest international goals – a collective tally of just 36, with John McGinn, on ten, the lone player to have reached double figures.
• Although there was no international tournament experience in the squad coming into UEFA EURO 2020, ten of the 26 players operated in the English Premier League in 2020/21, including captain Andy Robertson, who started all 38 games for defending champions Liverpool, while Manchester United's Scott McTominay appeared in the UEFA Europa League final and Gilmour was a fringe member of Chelsea's UEFA Champions League-winning squad.
• The seven goals McGinn scored in the UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying campaign mean that he needs just one more to join Ally McCoist as Scotland's all-time EURO top scorer. McCoist is one of just four Scottish scorers at the EURO finals; none of them managed more than one goal.
• Kieran Tierney, who plays in London with Arsenal, missed Scotland's game against the Czech Republic with a minor, unspecified injury.

Last updated 16/06/2021 22:41CET
Date of birth: 3 September 1970
Playing career: Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough
Coaching career: Middlesbrough, England Under-21s, England
• Came through the ranks at Palace, initially as a midfielder, becoming captain and leading the club to promotion to the Premier League in 1993/94. Moved on to Villa following relegation in 1995 and was converted into a centre-back, winning the League Cup in his first season and helping the team reach the 2000 FA Cup final.
• Won 57 caps for England, although perhaps best known for missing a crucial penalty against Germany in the EURO '96 semi-final at Wembley; also appeared at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000.
• Left Villa for Middlesbrough in 2001 and became the first Boro captain to lift a trophy, skippering the side to victory against Sam Allardyce's Bolton in the 2004 League Cup final; also helped Boro reach the UEFA Cup final in memorable fashion two years later.
• Defeat by Sevilla in Eindhoven proved Southgate's last game as he moved into the Middlesbrough dug-out to succeed Steve McClaren following the latter's departure for England; kept them in the Premier League until 2009, when they were relegated with Southgate dismissed that October.
• Joined the Football Association in 2011, initially as head of elite development before taking over as Under-21 coach two years later; appointed caretaker manager of the national side in September 2016 following Allardyce's departure. Subsequently took the role full time and led the side to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, England ultimately reaching the semi-finals for the first time since 1990. Southgate subsequently guided his side to the first UEFA Nations League Finals ahead of Spain and Croatia.
Date of birth: 29 August 1963
Playing career: St Mirren, Chelsea
Coaching career: Newcastle (caretaker), West Brom, Reading, Kilmarnock, Scotland
• Born in Saltcoats on the west coast of Scotland, Clarke started out on a part-time contract at St Mirren, training as a defender while serving an apprenticeship as an instrument engineer, but – after making his debut in 1982 – eventually established himself as the Paisley side's first choice right-back.
• Signed by Chelsea in February 1987, Clarke would make over 400 appearances for the club, and featured in the sides that won the 1997 FA Cup and the League Cup the following season; his final appearance was in the 1998 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final, the Blues beating Stuttgart 1-0 in Stockholm.
• Capped just six times by Scotland, Clarke moved into coaching as assistant to his former Stamford Bridge team-mate Ruud Gullit at Newcastle United, from 1998/99, taking caretaker command for one match. Then returned to Chelsea, initially as a youth team coach, before assisting José Mourinho (during two title-winning campaigns) and Avram Grant.
• Assisted another Stamford Bridge alumnus, Gianfranco Zola, at West Ham from 2008 to 2010, and was Kenny Dalglish's assistant at Liverpool before taking sole command at West Brom in 2012/13.
• Following a spell in charge at Reading, he was assistant to Roberto Di Matteo at Aston Villa in 2016, and then returned to management in 2017 with Kilmarnock – the club his brother Paul represented between 1974 and 1986; hired to coach Scotland in May 2019 after being named the Scottish Premiership's manager of the year.

UEFA European Football Championship final tournament: Did you know?
• Spain (1964, 2008, 2012) and Germany (1972, 1980 – both as West Germany – 1996) are the competition's most successful sides having lifted the trophy three times each. Only France (1984, 2000) have also triumphed more than once.
• Only three teams have ever won the UEFA European Championship on home soil: Spain (1964), Italy (1968) and France (1984).
• In 2012 Spain became the first nation to retain the Henri Delaunay Cup, having also won in 2008. The Soviet Union (1960, 1964) and West Germany (1972, 1976) returned to the final as holders only to lose.
• Eight players have appeared in two victorious finals – Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernández, Cesc Fàbregas and David Silva all started Spain's triumphs in 2008 and 2012, with Fernando Torres starting in 2008 and coming on four years later and Xabi Alonso coming on in the 2008 final and starting in 2012. Rainer Bonhof twice picked up a winners' medal with West Germany (1972, 1980) but did not play in either tournament.
• Berti Vogts was a winner as a player with West Germany in 1972 and as Germany coach in 1996, making him the only man to triumph in both roles.
• Since 1980, when the final tournament expanded to become an eight-team event, the hosts or co-hosts have only failed to reach the semi-finals – or better – four times: Italy (1980), Belgium (2000), Austria and Switzerland (2008) and Poland and Ukraine (2012).
• UEFA EURO 2020 is Germany's 13th successive UEFA European Championship final tournament – they last missed out as West Germany in 1968.
• Germany are appearing in the finals for the 13th time, one more than Russia (includes appearances as USSR). This is the 11th tournament for Spain.
• Eight teams have qualified for the finals with a perfect record, including Belgium and Italy this time round. The others are France (1992 and 2004), the Czech Republic (2000), Spain and Germany (2012) and England (2016).
• The Netherlands' 6-1 defeat of Yugoslavia in the UEFA EURO 2000 quarter-finals is the biggest win in a final tournament. Three games have finished 5-0, most recently Sweden's 2004 defeat of Bulgaria.
• Three teams have held the UEFA European Championship and FIFA World Cup at the same time. West Germany won the European title in 1972 and added the world crown two years later, while France claimed the 1998 World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000 and Spain triumphed at UEFA EURO 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. Spain's 2012 EURO victory made them the first country to win three major tournaments in a row; West Germany were within a shoot-out of achieving the feat before their 1976 loss to Czechoslovakia.
• For West Germany, Sepp Maier, Franz Beckenbauer, Hans-Georg Schwarzenbeck, Paul Breitner, Uli Hoeness and Gerd Müller played in both those finals, while Fabien Barthez, Marcel Desailly, Bixente Lizarazu, Lilian Thuram, Didier Deschamps, Youri Djorkaeff, Patrick Vieira, Zinédine Zidane and Christophe Dugarry achieved the feat for France.
• Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Carles Puyol, Joan Capdevila, Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernández, Cesc Fàbregas, Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres played in Spain's 2008 EURO final win and the 2010 World Cup success. Casillas, Ramos, Iniesta, Xavi, Fàbregas, Alonso and Torres appeared in all three of Spain's final wins between 2008 and 2012.
• In addition to the 24 players mentioned above, Dino Zoff (Italy 1968, 1982) and Germany's Thomas Hässler and Jürgen Klinsmann (1990, 1996) also featured in two final triumphs.
• In 2016 Portugal's Real Madrid pair Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo joined a small group of players to have appeared in European Cup and UEFA European Championship final victories in the same year. Luis Suárez achieved the feat with Internazionale Milano and Spain in 1964, while in 1988 PSV Eindhoven quartet Hans van Breucklen, Ronald Koeman, Barry van Aerle and Gerald Vanenburg were all in the victorious Netherlands side. In 2012 Fernando Torres and Juan Mata both appeared in final wins for Chelsea and Spain.
• Wim Kieft and Nicolas Anelka narrowly missed out on this club. A European Champion Clubs' Cup finalist with PSV in 1988, Kieft was an unused substitute in the Netherlands' European Championship triumph, while Anelka was similarly thwarted with France in 2000 after appearing in Real Madrid's UEFA Champions League final. Anelka's Madrid team-mate Christian Karembeu holds the unique position of being an unused substitute in European Cup and European Championship final victories in the same year.
• In 2008 Germany's Michael Ballack, then with Chelsea, became the first player to appear in European Cup and EURO final defeats in the same year.
• Four players have followed European Cup final defeat with EURO victory in the same year: Ignacio Zoco and Amancio Amaro (1964, Real Madrid and Spain) and Manny Kaltz and Horst Hrubesch (1980, Hamburg and West Germany).
• Gábor Király is the oldest player to have appeared in a UEFA European Championship finals; he was aged 40 years 86 days in Hungary's 4-0 loss against Belgium at UEFA EURO 2016.
• England's Jude Bellingham is the youngest player to have featured; he was 17 years and 349 days when he came on as a substitute against Croatia on Matchday 1 of UEFA EURO 2020.
• Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to appear, and score, in five EUROs with his two goals against Hungary on Matchday 1 at UEFA EURO 2020. Twenty-one players have appeared in four final tournaments: Lothar Matthäus, Peter Schmeichel, Alessandro Del Piero, Edwin van der Sar, Lilian Thuram, Olof Mellberg, Gianluigi Buffon, Petr Čech, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Andreas Isaksson, Kim Källström, Jaroslav Plašil, Lukas Podolski, Tomáš Rosický, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Darijo Srna, Giorgio Chiellini, Sebastian Larsson, Luka Modrić, João Moutinho and Pepe.
• Austria's Ivica Vastic is the oldest player to have scored, having found the net in a 1-1 draw against Poland at UEFA EURO 2008 aged 38 years 257 days.
• Johan Vonlanthen was 18 years 141 days old when scoring in Switzerland's 3-1 defeat by France at UEFA EURO 2004, making him the youngest player to have struck at the finals.
• Russia's Dmitri Kirichenko scored the fastest goal in a UEFA European Championship; his effort against Greece at UEFA EURO 2004 was timed at 67 seconds.
• There have been eight hat-tricks in a final tournament: Dieter Müller (1976), Klaus Allofs (1980), Michel Platini (1984, twice), Marco van Basten (1988), Sérgio Conceição (2000), Patrick Kluivert (2000) and David Villa (2008).

:: Team facts
EURO finals: The UEFA European Championship was a four-team event in 1960, 1964, 1968, 1972 and 1976 (when the preliminary round and quarter-finals were considered part of qualifying).
From 1980 it was expanded to an eight-team finals and remained in that format in 1984, 1988 and 1992 until 1996, when the 16-team format was adopted. UEFA EURO 2016 was the first tournament to be played as a 24-team finals.
Records of inactive countries
A number of UEFA associations have been affected by dissolution or splits of member associations. For statistical purposes, the records of these inactive countries have been allocated elsewhere: therefore, all Soviet Union matches are awarded to Russia; all West Germany – but not East Germany – matches are awarded to Germany; all Yugoslavia and Serbia & Montenegro matches are awarded to Serbia; all Czechoslovakia matches are allocated to both the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
For statisical purposes, when a match has been started and then abandoned but later forfeited, the result on the pitch at the time of abandonment is counted. Matches that never started and were either cancelled or forfeited are not included in the overall statistics.
