Scotland may be facing England at Wembley this evening. But Celtic favourite Chris Sutton won’t be there.

The 48-year-old, who is an icon at Parkhead as well as in both countries, is north of the border today taking in Croatia vs Czech Republic.

The other two teams from Group D face off at Hampden three hours before the Auld Enemy clash in London.

But Sutton doesn’t seem too bothered about drawing the short straw on radio duties, as he posted a typically humorous tweet.

Sutton is always good value, especially just hours before a huge game between his home country and his adopted home.

Lustig gets a big win

It should be a great evening of Euro 2020 action at Hampden and Wembley.

If Scotland can find a way to earn a point against England, it would really set things up for a huge game at Hampden on Tuesday evening.

Elsewhere in Euro 2020, Mikael Lustig’s Sweden earned a crucial 1-0 win over Slovakia.

The former Celt played the entire match as Emil Forsberg’s penalty 13 minutes from time earned the win which should see Sweden into the last 16.
