    It is just before Scotland v England in the Euro’s Group game.
    Kane goes into the English changing room to find all his team mates looking a bit glum.
    "What's up?" he asks.
    "Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but it's only Scotland. They're ****e and we can't be bothered".
    Kane looks at them and says "Well, I reckon I can beat these by myself, you lads go down the pub."
    So Kane goes out to play Scotland by himself and the rest of the English team go off for a few pints. After a few jars they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the teletext on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads "England 1 - Scotland 0 (Kane 10minutes)". He is beating Scotland all by himself!
    Anyway, a few more pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers "It must be full time now, let's see how he got on". They put the teletext on.
    "Result from the Stadium "England 1 (Kane 10 minutes) - Scotland 1"(Angus McShagnasty 89 minutes)".
    They can't believe it, he has single handedly got a draw against Scotland!!
    They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate him. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sat with his head in his hands. He refuses to look at them.
    "I've let you down, I've let you down."
    "Don't be daft, you got a draw against Scotland , all by yourself. And they only scored at the very very end"
    "No, No, I have, I've let you down...
    I got sent off after 12 minutes"

    In 1872, the first ever official international football match was played In Glasgow, it was between Scotland v England.

    The world’s first international rugby match was played in Scotland.

    Scotland is home to the tallest waterfall in Britain, named Eas a’ Chual Aluinn. It is 658 feet, which is 3 times the height of Niagara Falls.

    The official animal of Scotland is the Unicorn.

    Scotland is home to the oldest tree in Europe. It is a twisted yew, and it has been around for 3,000 years.

    Edinburgh was the first city in the world to have its own fire brigade starting in 1824.

    Aberdeen Harbour Board, founded in 1136, is Britain’s oldest running business.

    Scotland has the oldest working post office in the world – at Sanqurar, established in 1712.

    The Encyclopedia Britannica, which is the Wikipedia of the past, originated in Scotland. It was the idea of an Edinburgh bookseller, Colin Macfarquhar.

    Teviot Row House is a historic building inside the Edinburgh University. It is the oldest student’s union building in the world.

    The world’s first color photograph, that of a Tartan Ribbon, was taken in Scotland.

    James GoodFellow OBE was the person who invented the first CHIP and PIN (Personal Identification Number) system in Paisley in the year 1966. He also went on to invent the ATM (Automatic Teller Machine), which are all currently used on a daily basis.

    The remains of St Valentine lay in Glasgow’s Blessed St John Duns Scotus.

    The only Knighted penguin in the world lives in the Edinburgh Zoo. He goes by the name of Sir Nils Olav. He has duties such as inspecting the Norwegian Guard when they visit. He was knighted in 2008 and has since been promoted to Brigadier.

    The Britannia Panopticon is the oldest surviving music hall in the world.


    The last time that a monarch of England ever refused to sign an Act that had passed through the House of Commons was in the early 18th century when Queen Anne refused to approve a bill regarding the legalization of Scottish militias as the Scots were seen as being untrustworthy.

    Shakespeare's 'Macbeth,' often known only as 'the Scottish play' is the most-produced play in the world.

    Winchester was the first capital of England, from 827 to 1066

    Queen Elizabeth II is distantly related to Vlad the Impaler (Dracula)

    England has been known by two other (non-official) names: Albion and Loegria.

    Sparkling wine was invented in England

    There was a lunch break for both sides during the Battle of Hastings.

    There are more chickens than people in England.

    Most people will know that the national animal of England is the lion. However, people might be surprised to know that this lion helped influence the national animal of Scotland, which is the unicorn. According to Scottish mythology, the unicorn was the natural enemy of the lion, and it was deemed the most suitable choice to represent Scotland.

    The sky above Suffolk was the inspiration for the song 'twinkle twinkle little star.'

    It is estimated that in England up to 6,000 people per year die as a result of their own trousers... whether that's tripping over the hem, or falling down the stairs while trying to pull them up.

    The earliest version of a metric system was invented by an Englishman.

    Created in 1386 and continuing today, the UK's alliance with Portugal is the longest in the world.

    If both teams turn up with their 'A' game England will win comfortably; personally, I think a good 'B' game should be enough. Looking forward to hearing lots of ''God save YOUR Queen'' and ''Are you Scotland in disguise'' chants.

    My England 11
    Pickford
    Foden
    Kane
    Sterling
    Rashford
    Bellingham
    Grealish
    Calvert-Lewin
    Saka

    don’t bother with the last 2. Pickford expected to play a sweeper role to add some attacking threat.

    Result: England 12, Scotland 3

    Kingston upon Hull was given its Royal Charter in 1299 by Edward I, also known as Edward longshanks and the Hammer of the Scots, who needed a Naval base to pursue his war with Scotland. The war lasted 32 years and the Proud Edwards Army referred to in the song Flower of Scotland is Edward I son Edward II. Come on England.

    Would like to see Scotland progress so a draw would be OK.

    Don't buy into this mutual loathing ****.

    We have a team with cheats such as Kane, Sterling and Grealish, and a turd of a manager, it's difficult to identify with them.

    The Scots taught the English the finer points of the game in the late 1800s and punched above their weight until 20 years ago.

    Unfortunately there is a noisy embedded SNP influence north of the border who aim to spread discord.

    In the SE of England (or in M25 land) on the other hand, there are a lot of people who actively loathe the north of England and northerners in general.

    Feel no affinity with these folk.

    England to win but the game north of the border needs a boost, so let em have a point or even a win.

    The first post-Norman Conquest King of England to speak Middle English. The Anglo-Saxon kings spoke Old English, and Canute and his sons probably spoke Old English too as a second language.

    At the moment, in the ground, the Scottish outnumber the English about ten to one.

    Rewind to 2006- it is just before Scotland v Brazil at the next World Cup group game. Ronaldo goes into the Brazilian changing room to find all his team-mates looking a bit glum.

    What's up he asks. "Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game" explains Ronaldinho. "We know it's important but it's only Scotland. They're shiite and we can't be bothered."

    Ronaldo looks at them and says:"OK, I reckon I can beat them by myself, you lads go down the pub." So Ronaldo goes out to play Scotland by himself and the rest of the team goes for a few jars.

    After a few beers they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the teletext on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads 'Brazil 1 Scotland 0 (Ronaldo 10 minutes)'. He is beating Scotland all by himself!

    Anyway, a few more pints and the game is forgotten until someone remembers: "It must be full-time now - let's see how he got on." They put the teletext on: 'Result: Brazil 1 (Ronaldo 10 minutes) Scotland 1 (Angus McShite 89 minutes).' They can't beleive it - he has singlehandedly drawn against Scotland!

    They rush back to the stadium to congratulate him. But they find him in the changing room, still in his gear, head in hands.

    Ronaldo can't look his team-mates in the eye." I've let you down, I've let you down." he sobs.

    "Don't be daft, you got a draw against Scotland all by yourself." says Roberto Carlos. "And they only scored at the very, very end!"

    No, no, I really have let you all down," insist Ronaldo...
    "I got sent off after 12 minutes!"
